The New York Knicks (15-13) will host the Oklahoma City Thunder (14-14) in an inter-conference match-up at Madison Square Garden on Saturday (Sunday AEDT).

The Thunder are without starting center Steven Adams after he sustained a concussion in their triple-overtime victory in Philadelphia on Friday.

According to the New York Post, Anthony is ready for an emotional return to NYC, where the Thunder will square off against an improved Knicks team that is being carried by the franchise's new cornerstone, Kristaps Porzingis.

"I think he was as professional as he can be in his time here in New York", Porzingis, who left Thursday's game against the Nets with a knee injury, told ESPN's Ian Begley.

There's a lot that Anthony still misses about NY and added that going back to Madison Square Garden on Saturday will be an emotional experience for him.

Eventually, Carmelo Anthony would get his wish. Play in front of those fans. "It's not like I was there a season or two seasons".

The Thunder travel to NY to play the Knicks at Madison Square Garden this Saturday. He said he felt his knee "buckle a little" while making a second-quarter pass.

"I don't think they will (boo Anthony)", Thomas said.

Kristaps Porzingis is sitting out the Knicks' game against Oklahoma City because of a sore left knee. "He is also averaging 6.6 rebounds and 2.1 blocks a night behind 39.8 percent shooting from three-point range as one of the best players in the Eastern Conference and a matchup nightmare at 7'3" with ball-handling abilities.
