New York (38-24 SU, 30-30-2 ATS, 28-32-2 O/U) is in big trouble. Star forward Carmelo Anthony is going back to New York to have his knee checked out, while 2012-13 Defensive Player of the Year Tyson Chandler is doubtful with knee issues. New York is coming off a 117-94 loss at Denver on Wednesday getting 8.5, while Portland (29-34 SU, 28-32-3 ATS,  34-28-1 O/U) is coming off a 102-97 loss at home to Memphis on Tuesday, getting 1.5. New York has had a tough road trip as they also lost to Golden State by 29 on Monday. The Trail Blazers are 3 1/2 games behind the Los Angeles Lakers for eighth place in the West and need this game against a tired and depleted Knicks team. Nicolas Batum led the Trailblazers with 26 in their won over the Knicks on New Year's Day. He struggled against Memphis but should bounce back. It also might get ugly for Ray Felton, who played for Portland a year ago and struggled with weight. He's now coming off a blowout loss at Denver and has to stay with quick rookie point guard Damian Lillard, who's averaging 19 points per game and 6.4 assists.
