Game one of the doubleheader has a tip off time of 8PM Eastern Time over TNT as the New York Knicks are on the road to face the good defensive team of the Indiana Pacers. After a strong start to the season the Knicks are just 5-5 over their past ten games. The team has suffered on the defensive end of the court with the injury to point guard Raymond Felton. Felton has a broken pinkie and isn’t due back into the lineup until late January or early February. Carmelo Anthony leads the Knicks with 29 points over 46% shooting. New York has allowed six of their past nine opponents to score 100 or more points against them. A one-time top five defense in the NBA the Knicks have plummeted into a mid-pack defense. The Indiana Pacers will face the Knicks following their showdown game on Tuesday night against the Miami Heat. The Pacers are second in the league in scoring defense by allowing 89 points a game plus they allow opponents just 41.4% shooting which is the best in basketball.

The nightcap of the TNT NBA doubleheader is scheduled for a 10:30PM Eastern Time tip off as the Miami Heat will make road trip to the Pacific Northwest to face the red hot Portland Trailblazers. The Heat has been a very good offensive team as they average 103 points a game and their shooting percentage at 49% is the best in basketball. Like most NBA Champions they seem to turn on and off the defensive intensity at many points during the regular season. The Portland Trailblazers has turned around their season with three straight wins and six wins over their past eight games. The Trailblazers have catapulted their team into the 7th seed in the Western Conference. The Portland turnaround this season has come from their guard position as rookie Damian Lillard has averaged 18 points and 6 ½ assists per game on the year with 3 turnovers a game.
