Marc Berman's post on New York Knicks | Latest updates on Sulia
Tyson Chandler on Melo's availability for the Nets game. "I knew he was going to play tonight,'' Chandler said. "I
can always tell when he has the gameday excitement. I saw it in him this morning. It made for some good television and good anticipation (on whether he'd play).'' I knew it too after Woodson said how good he looked during the morning shootaround. He wouldn't be saying that unless he had a pretty good idea Melo was a go. Still, Melo needed to test it a couple of hours before game time, do some lateral slides and such. Claims it's still bruised but hardly looked it. The 31 points tonight actually looked effortless and that's the nicest thing I can say about a performer.
