The New York Knicks play their home opener Friday night in a nationally televised game against the Miami Heat, making them one of the last teams in the league to do so after their original Thursday-night start date was canceled due to Hurricane Sandy.
NBA: Miami Heat vs. New York Knicks, 8 p.m., ESPN: There's power and the lights will be on at Madison Square Garden and basketball will be played Friday night, as the defending champions take on the Knicks in New York's first game of the year after the season opener against the Brooklyn Nets Thursday night was canceled.
Miami looked like the juggernaut they are on offense Tuesday night in its matchup against the typically defense-oriented Boston Celtics, scoring 120 points, so Carmelo Anthony and his squad will have to keep up in a matchup of a lopsided first-round playoff series last season. Tyson Chandler and Marcus Camby are expected to play despite various bumps and bruises. And yes, the subway is running to Penn Station, so the game is accessible by public transportation.
