Melo scored 33 points with 19 of them coming in the fourth quarter
The Lakers have put together four straight victories, beating the Warriors 118-115 in Nash's return from injury on Saturday Night.
Nash had 12 points and 9 assists in his first game since missing almost two months with a fracture in his left leg
Anyone out there on Twitter? Follow @teedotyankee and lets talk sports?
I've almost had too much of the Biebs already and we have not even started the second game!!
Let me hear what you think will happen in this afternoon's game? What is your final prediction?
Does anyone out there have any $$$$$ on this afternoon's game? I would take the Lakers -4 and UNDER 211.0
New York is 4-1 SU in its last 5 games on the road
Anthony, Thomas, Chandler, Felton, Kidd
Bryant, Gasol, Howard, Morris, Nash
These Knicks jersey'a are mad crazy.
Melo works on Morris and drops in the mid-ranger.
Nash gets in the lane and sinks in the running one-hander.
Bryant misses the wide open 3ball after taking the nice feed.
Chandler puts up the open jumper and misses. Nash answers at the other end with a deuce to tie things up at 4
Melo takes the bounce pass from Kidd, turns around and makes the tuff jumper, AND 1.
Melo drops in the FT and the Knicks now lead by 3.
Gasol dishes to a penetrating Bryant who finishes.
Thomas NAILS a jumper at the other end to give the Knicks a 3 point lead.
Nash dribbles inside and sends a nice pass to Gasol who drops the J.
