Carmelo Anthony is the leading scorer for the Knicks (22-10) at 28.9 points per game to go with 6.3 rebounds per game. J.R. Smith is averaging 16.6 PPG and 5.2 RPG, while Raymond Felton is scoring 15.8 PPG and dishing out 6.3 assists per game and Tyson Chandler is notching 12.7 PPG and 10.3 RPG

Orlando (12-20) is receiving 17.1 PPG from Arron Afflalo, 16.0 PPG and 7.9 RPG from the injured Glen Davis, 14.1 PPG from J.J. Redick, 13.9 PPG and 6.7 APG from Jameer Nelson, and 11.1 PPG and 10.5 RPG from Nikola Vucevic.

"We just have to figure it out and we have to stick together. We’re winning together and we’re losing together," Nelson said. "It’s a tough stretch for us right now, but as long as we stay together and continue to work, I have faith that we’ll get out of this. We just have to clean some things up and maybe it will turn around for us." 

Saturday's game begins at 7:00 pm on FS Florida.
