New York Knicks vs. Memphis Grizzlies: Watch Live TV Stream Online For Free; Preview

By Jason Van Hoven, Posted: 11/16/12 05:07PM EST

The New York Knicks will visit the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday. The game will be broadcast live on MSG and ESPN and can be seen via live TV stream online for free here.

If the Knicks want to stay undefeated, they'll have to snap the Grizzlies' six-game winning streak this season, but also their 14-game regular-season home winning streak dating back to last season. The Knicks have a chance to go 4-0 on the road for the first time since 1996-97.

No one in the league has been better from three-point range than Knicks guard J.R. Smith, who is 14-for-19 while scoring a career-best 18.0 points per game. He will most likely be counted on to do the same against a Grizzlies team that can defend in the paint.

The team will most likely count on Jason Kidd, Rasheed Wallace and Raymond Felton to drain shot as well. Collectively, New York made 11 of 25 three-pointers in its 104-100 over the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday.

Knicks leading scorer Carmelo Anthony finished with a season-low nine points at San Antonio, but given his recent success in Memphis, he can turn things around. Anthony averaged 31.8 points in his previous five games at Memphis before finishing with 14 in a 94-83 loss on Jan. 12.

Meanwhile, the Grizzlies are 3-0 at home for the first time in franchise history, and look as much of a contender as the Knicks do in the Western Conference. They also have some momentum going, coming off back-to-back victories over last season's NBA finalists - a 104-86 home win against the Miami Heat on Sunday, then a 107-97 road win at the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday.

Forward Zach Randolph is playing lights out, having posted his seventh consecutive double-double with 20 points and 11 rebounds on Wednesday. He is also the NBA's rebounding leader  at 14.0 per game. However, there is a chance that he doesn't play because of his altercation with Thunder center Kendrick Perkins after their game that the NBA is investigating.

Because of Randolph, in addition to center Marc Gasol (averaging 14.1 points per game) and Rudy Gay (20.7 points per game), the Grizzlies rank third in the league with 46.0 points per game in the paint. Gay could especially break out, having scored at least 20 points in all seven career starts against the Knicks.

The Grizzlies are good three-point shooters themselves. Mike Conley is 9-for-25), but the better shooters are reserves -- Wayne Ellington (11-for-24), Jerryd Bayless (10-for-18) and Quincy Pondexter (10-for-22).
