New York beat Detroit 102-87 in London on Jan. 17 for its ninth win in the past 10 meetings and won the most recent matchup in Madison Square Garden 121-100 on Nov. 25, while Amare Stoudemire was recovering from left knee surgery. During the 10-game stretch against the Pistons, the Knicks are averaging 111.1 points per game and are averaging 114.3 during their six-game home winning streak in the series.
Stoudemire, who is averaging 17.5 points on 77.8 percent shooting during New York's 4-0 start to the current five-game homestand, will be on the Garden floor this time around against the Pistons. As a member of the Knicks, he has put up 23.0 points per game in seven meetings against Detroit, scoring 17 points in just 20 minutes in London while hitting 11 of 12 from the free-throw line.
Carmelo Anthony, who is second in the NBA with an average of 28.5 points per game, had 26 in the London game. Look for Anthony to score more than the season-low-tying nine he dropped on Saturday against the Sacramento Kings.
And, don't be surprised if Tyson Chandler, who has 20 rebounds in each of the last two games, crashes the boards for another 20.
In dropping five of seven, the Pistons have surrendered an average of 101.3 points per game, but will have newly acquired Jose Calderon available for the first time on Monday.
The Spanish point guard has had his team debut delayed due to visa issues after being acquired from the Toronto Raptors in a three-team trade last week. He averaged 11.1 points and 7.4 assists per game with the Raptors this season.
Maybe Detroit could have used Calderon on Sunday in its 98-97 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, especially to rally from 18 points down in the third quarter.
Look for Greg Monroe and Will Bynum to have impacts. Monroe finished with 20 points and is averaging 19.7 points per game on 59.0 percent shooting from the floor in his last six games. Will Bynum, who had 22 points against the Knicks last month, added 18 points and 10 assists against the Lakers.
