New York Knicks vs. Charlotte Bobcats: Watch Live TV Stream Online For Free; Preview

By Jason Van Hoven, Posted: 12/05/12 01:01PM EST

The New York Knicks will visit the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday. The game will be broadcast live on MSG and FSCR at 7 p.m. ET and can be seen via live TV stream online for free here.

The Bobcats are trying to avoid a fifth straight loss, while the Knicks are looking to win four in a row. The Knicks, who face a stretch of three road games in four nights, have won seven of the last nine meetings against the Bobcats

Carmelo Anthony continues to put up MVP-type numbers. He is averaging 30.7 points over his last six games and his 26.6 per game average ranks second in the NBA.

However, although the Bobcats seem like a team that Anthony would be able to exploit, he had one of his worst performances as a professional basketball player the last time he faced them. He scored a career-low one point while going 0 for 7 from the field, but the Knicks still rolled to a 111-78 road win on Jan. 24.

Anthony and former Bobcat Tyson Chandler, who continues to be a menace in the paint at both ends of the floor, both sat out the most recent meeting against Charlotte on April 26 when the Knicks won 104-84 for their third straight win over Charlotte. Now, both will play, and don't be surprised if Chandler has a great game against his former team.

The Knicks are also breathing a sigh of relief as they received good news on Tuesday when point guard Raymond Felton said that he will play on Wednesday despite suffering a bone bruise in his left hand on Sunday against the Phoenix Suns, when he tallied 23 points and seven assists. Felton, also a former Bobcat selected fifth overall by Charlotte in the 2005 NBA draft, averaged 13.3 points per game in five seasons with the Bobcats before beginning his first year with the Knicks in 2010.

Jason Kidd is also expected to return to the starting lineup after missing the last four games with back spasms.

Charlotte, despite a 7-9 record, has been a pleasant surprise this season. Most recently, the team blew an 18-point fourth-quarter lead on Monday before falling 118-112 in overtime to the Portland Trail Blazers, which marked its fourth straight defeat. Ben Gordon scored 29 points off the bench, while Kemba Walker added 22 points and seven assists. Both will most likely have to play that well to beat the Knicks.

That is not to say that the Bobcats haven't been fighting. Their last three defeats have come by six points or less. If they keep it close against the Knicks, they have a chance.
