How they rank in NBA's Eastern Conference
6. New York Knicks
Record against Boston: 0-2
If you hadn't heard, the Knicks made a small trade last week, adding two All-Stars (one current and one former) in Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups. Amar'e Stoudamire now has another elite scorer next to him, with a solid point guard who can hit the three to get him the ball. The Knicks are thin -- undersized Ronny Turiaf is starting at center, with Shawne Williams, Bill Walker and Shelden Williams as key reserves. That group had enough to beat the Heat in Miami on Sunday night. The Knicks may have just went from first round fodder to legitimate spoiler.
