Michael Beasley stepped his game up after Kristaps Porzingis left the game with a sore left knee, posting 15 points off the bench. NY ranks 27th in the league in ball protection (turnover percentage of 15.6 percent), while the ball-hawking defense of Oklahoma City forces the most turnovers in the National Basketball Association (17.3 percent). Teammates have credited Anthony for how he handled the off-court drama of trade speculation and critiques - both direct and indirect - delivered by former Knicks president Phil Jackson throughout the 2016-17 season.
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.
This is the second game of the season between these two teams.

A trailer and tent to accept toys, as well as monetary donations, will be set up Friday in The Salvation Army's parking lot. The Salvation Army in State College is concerned they won't meet their goal of more than $50,000 this year.
"I don't think he deserves to be booed, but you never know", Knicks forward Lance Thomas said.
And after placing him with MVP Russell Westbrook and fellow All-Star Paul George for the NBA's latest Big Three, the Thunder were under.500 before Friday's victory.
Even though he was unable to bring a consistent level of success to the Knicks, he admits he still misses NY.

Speaking to TMZ in NY however, "The Notorious" was adamant about his next move - which doesn't involve boxing. Former five-weight world champion Mayweather stopped Irish UFC fighter McGregor in the 10th round.
Porzingis has shown an ability to navigate the NY media landscape well; being the Knicks' star comes with incredible scrutiny, but the Latvian-who is still just 22 (!) years old-always says the right thing. Now Anthony prepares for his NY return. I want to win for many reasons. Anthony said he has stayed in touch with a number of players on the team, but he hasn't been tracking their every game. "It was great times, it was bad times, but regardless, I always stuck with it, I always remained professional, I always came and did my job whether people liked me or not, so hopefully they recognize that". "They just need some time to try to get used to each other and stuff, but once they get the chemistry together, I think they're gonna beat Houston, Golden State, whoever, in the West".
"Look, we all got to move on, man". "If I sit here and say, it's going to feel the same kind of way, right now, I'd be lying to you". "Those guys, from what I'm hearing, the little bit that I've seen, are playing well". The players they have on the team are fitting in very well.
