Can Our Knicks Take the Heat in Tonight's 'Star Wars?'
 
What are your thoughts on tonight's battle of the stars? Do you think the Knicks have a chance with Amar'e, Billips & a one-armed 'Melo who hurt his shooting arm in the last game?

For my analysis, please read "Can the New-Look Knicks Take the Heat?" http://bit.ly/hHgm6M on my new NY Knicks fan blog "We Love the Knicks."

Of course Knicks have a chance but I give advantage to Miami.

Nice to see you back, oldknickfan.

Your blog was a good read.

Now as far the game tonite, I take it as a statement game.

I don't expect the Knicks to win, but I do believe they can.

They will have to collectively do some things like clogging up the lane.

If the back gets beat off the dribble or a screen, the frontcourt need to protect the paint.

We have three players who are in the very top of drawing fouls and that skill will be needed tonite.

Amar'e and Melo will have to be willing to move the ball, and do the simple defensive play.

Billups may not have the mismatch I'm expecting because I expect Wade to be on him and Chalmers on Fields.

Limit the turnovers and win the rebounding battle.

We have to get our offensive boards for sure.

Amar'e will need to play more in the paint, and let Melo operate on the wing to keep the floor spaced.

I really don't expect a blow out, and I hope I don't see one.
