Tuesday Game Notes

By Elias Sports Bureau

• Mike D'Antoni will face his former team when the Knicks host the Suns on Tuesday night. Phoenix posted a 232-96 (.707) record during D'Antoni's four seasons as head coach, the third-best mark in the NBA during that time, behind the Mavericks and Spurs (both 236-92). Incidentally, the Knicks have never won as many games over a four-year span as the Suns did under D'Antoni. New York's highest four-season win total was 223 (1991-1992 to 1994-1995).

• Carmelo Anthony, whose Nuggets host the Warriors on Tuesday night, averaged 30.4 points per game during November. It was the second time Anthony averaged at least 30 points per game in November, having previously done so in November 2006 (31.5 ppg). The only other Nuggets player to do that even once was Alex English (31.3 in 1982, 30.2 in 1984 and 31.0 in 1985).

• The Celtics, who visit the Bobcats on Tuesday night, defeated Charlotte 92-59 on opening night in Boston. Over the last six seasons, only two NBA teams have held an opponent below 60 points, and the Celtics have done it twice (104-59 against the Knicks in 2007). The other team was the Raptors, who beat the Heat 96-54 in March 2008.
