“I think I caught it before it rolled all the way,” Anthony told reporters postgame. “But it rolled pretty bad.”
Regardless, Anthony sounded like a guy set on playing.
“I haven't been 100 percent since I came into the NBA. I won't be 100 percent Wednesday, for sure,” he said. “I'll be there. Hopefully I'll be there. I don't want to miss that game. It's Christmas in the Garden.”
Also, for the Knicks, Raymond Felton (groin) is out and Kenyon Martin (abdominal) is questionable.
The Thunder won't be wearing its regular jerseys on Wednesday. Won't be wearing the alternate navy blues, either.
For the second straight year, Thunder players will don some of the league's special Christmas Day threads.
And this year's version will include sleeves, a growing trend among NBA teams that seems to get a lukewarm reaction from fans.
The baby blue sleeved jersey also includes a large OKC logo on the front.
STAT OF THE DAY
In four Christmas games (one with the Sonics), Durant has scored 130 points, the fourth most among active players. Kobe Bryant has scored the most all-time with 284 points in 14 games.
