High Octane Offense on Display When Knicks Host Thunder

kevin-durant-carmello-anthonyThe New York Knicks and Oklahoma City Thunder are two of the hottest tickets in the NBA, so when they square off under the bright lights of Madison Square Garden Thursday night at 8:00 p.m., all eyes will be on the Big Apple.

The battle for the league scoring title will certainly be talked about, as Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant are tied atop the NBA with 28.6 points per game. While those numbers could change between now and Thursday, they’re still sure to be battling it out for the scoring crown.

The Knicks have been shaky of late, dropping six of their last 10, but still remain among the best of the NBA with a 35-21 record. A win over the Thunder would send a message that they’re not to be taken lightly as the playoffs near. New York faces the added challenge of being on the road Monday and Wednesday against the Cavaliers and Pistons.

The Thunder have won six of their last 10 and remain just three games back of the Spurs for the best record in the Western Conference, sitting at 43-16. For all of the talk the Heat have gotten this season, the Thunder matches the Heat with 43 wins, but Miami’s two ahead in the loss column. The Thunder meet the Lakers Tuesday night, then head up to New York.

Expect lots of points to be scored, as the Knicks and Thunder are two of the top scoring teams in the league. Oklahoma City averages 106.7 points per game, second best in the NBA. New York checks in at 100.1 points per game, 10th in the league.

While there will be plenty of talk about Anthony and Durant, both teams have great supporting casts. Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook is undoubtedly the third most dangerous player who will take the floor, scoring 23.4 points per game and dishing out 7.9 assists per contest.

The Knicks might have more depth, though, with five players averaging double figures: Anthony, J.R. Smith, Raymond Felton, Amar’e Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler.

Don’t miss out on what could be one of the most exciting, high scoring games of the year. Get your tickets now.
