The New York Knicks will attempt to achieve something they accomplished only six times last season when they host the Portland Trail Blazers Tuesday at Madison Square Garden.The Knicks (6-7) will seek to get to .500, a mark they werent able to reach after January 20 last season when they finished 32-50.New York has won three of its last four games and is coming off an impressive 104-94 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday in which forward Carmelo Anthony poured in a season-high 31 points. With the many additions, including a new backcourt of Derrick Rose and Courtney Lee and center Joakim Noah, Anthony remains the centerpiece of the team.The 32-year-old Anthony leads the Knicks in scoring (22.9 points per game), minutes played (33.1) and field goals made (8.5) and attempted (17.8).

People dont realize that. He draws a lot of attention. Hes the main focus for the other team.That opens stuff for me. Without him it would be much more difficult. Im happy to have aggressive guys like him and (Derrick) Rose so I can get those open looks.Portland (8-7) ended a three-game losing streak with a 129-109 wiin over the Nets in Brooklyn on Sunday.

He scored 19 points and made eight of his 12 shots from the floor.I think you need to get in there a little bit, said Turner on finding his spots. One of the biggest things is the consistency of it and talking about it. I think in the past four or five games, I have gotten to my spots. Things just havent fallen, but once again, as a team and myself, were just trying to build consistency.We need everybody clicking in order to win. Right now, were starting to find more chemistry outside our main contributors, whether it be myself and Meyers (Leonard) trying to work the pick and roll -- I think thats the biggest thing.Portland used a 27-9 run in the third quarter to pull away from the Nets.We pretty much took over the game in that quarter on the defensive end and that kind of sparked everything and I think thats what I was the most proud of, said Portland guard Damian Lillard.We had more of a presence on the ball. The first half I think we had trouble controlling the ball and from top to bottom guys were taking it from the perimeter and getting it to the rim. ' ' '
