Terror Alert In Europe Not Stopping Knicks

The New York Knicks are going about their business in Paris despite a travel alert that has been issued by the U.S. government in response to threats of terrorist action.

The New York Knicks practiced Monday for the second game of their preseason tour, with Amare Stoudemire promising to have fun in Paris despite warnings of a possible terrorist attack in Europe.

The Knicks play the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday. They defeated Olimpia Milano 125-113 in Milan on Sunday behind Amare Stoudemire's 32 points.

"We know where to go and the places to visit and again, you have to cherish the moment because it's not often you get a chance to play an NBA game in Paris," said Stoudemire, who joined the Knicks from the Phoenix Suns this summer. "So we got to make sure we enjoy it and have fun."

The U.S. government issued a travel alert Sunday, urging Americans to be vigilant in public places, tourist spots and transportation hubs.
