  • New York Knicks v Brooklyn Nets

On Friday, the Thunder edged Philadelphia in a triple-overtime thriller, with Anthony scoring 24 points - his highest-scoring output in more than a month - in a 119-117 win.

"Walking in there, it will be a little emotional, " Anthony continued.

The match is being billed as Carmelo Anthony's first appearance in NY since being traded to Oklahoma City ahead of the 2017-18 National Basketball Association season.

There's a lot that Anthony still misses about NY and added that going back to Madison Square Garden on Saturday will be an emotional experience for him. "Being back in there, being on the other side, running out the other side of the tunnel, seeing people that I became close with, seeing my family that I can't really much right now because I'm in Oklahoma City - my son, my wife - seeing them, having them be there, is very important".

"I think he was as professional as he can be in his time here in NY, so I don't see why they would not receive him with love", Porzingis, who didn't play Saturday due to a left knee injury, said Thursday.

Kristaps Porzingis is questionable for Carmelo Anthony's return to the Garden Saturday night. Play in front of those fans. But at the end of the day, it's business to me.

"It's not like I was there for a year or two seasons", he said. The video showed some of the big shots and highlight games during Anthony's 6½-season tenure in NY. A different relationship, different bond with the city, with the fans, with the people. He said he felt his knee "buckle a little" while making a second-quarter pass.

"I think it will be an appreciation, " Anthony said.

Porzingis has shown an ability to navigate the NY media landscape well; being the Knicks' star comes with incredible scrutiny, but the Latvian-who is still just 22 (!) years old-always says the right thing. "I don't think he deserves to be booed".

Porzingis averages 25.5 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.1 blocked shots. He hopes the NY fans remember him fondly.
