Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks won Round 2 of the battle for New York on Tuesday, as Anthony dropped a season-high 45 points and five 3-pointers on 15-of-24 shooting in the win over the Nets in Brooklyn.

He added five rebounds and three assists, and is now averaging a whopping 34 points in the month of December, while the Knicks have a perfect H2H fantasy playoff schedule to end the season. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

The Hawks are reportedly less optimistic about Kyle Korver's ankle than they were about DeMarre Carroll's knee the morning after his injury.

We are expected to get a full diagnosis soon, so we should know more details shortly.

According to head coach Mike Budenholzer, the Hawks are hopeful that Al Horford (knee) will be good to go for Game 3 vs. the Cavaliers on Sunday.

"He had two or three different times where he got hit in the same spot," Budenholzer said. "The feedback from him after the game, I think that he's going to be OK. I think that it's just one of those things. A couple hits, a couple bangs, we're hopeful that he'll be fine going into Game 3." The Hawks have the lost the first two games of the series at home, so they desperately need to win on Sunday. Horford will likely do everything in his power to play, but we should have plenty of updates on his status before the game. If Horford is unable to play, Mike Muscala and Pero Antic would be in the mix for more minutes.

Jeff Van Gundy has emerged as a candidate for the Pelicans' open head coaching position according to ESPN.com.

Van Gundy joins Tom Thibodeau and Alvin Gentry as confirmed candidates for the job according to the report, with Gentry the only candidate known to be formally interviewed. Considering many thought Monty Williams was safe after making the playoffs, it makes sense that the franchise had some big names lined up after his somewhat surprising release. After all, coaching the Brow has its benefits.

Jeff Teague hit just 5-of-16 shots in the Hawks' 94-82 loss to the Cavs on Friday, finishing with 12 points, three rebounds, six assists, one steal and two blocks.

The stat line doesn't reflect his underwhelming play and the score doesn't reflect how far apart the two teams were tonight. Teague was everything he has always been when he struggles -- indecisive, passive and frustrating -- and though some credit should be given to Matthew Dellavedova he just simply has to play better for the Hawks to have a chance. They head to Cleveland down 2-0 for Sunday's matchup.

DeMarre Carroll bounced back from a scary looking knee injury in Game 1 against the Cavs to play in Game 2, finishing with six points on 2-of-6 shooting and three rebounds in a team-high 34 minutes.

Carroll was clearly hobbled and fairly lucky that LeBron James didn't test him as much as he could have. Still, the fact that he led his team in minutes and didn't back down from the challenge tonight are huge feathers in his cap for free agency. He needs some of his teammates to show the same fire he had tonight.

Al Horford scored 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting with six rebounds, one steal and one block in Friday's Game 2 loss to the Cavs, but also got dinged up throughout the game with apparent quad injuries.

Horford left the game once and would later return and the nature of his discomfort was hard to peg, but it's clear he's not at 100 percent and his status might be touchy going forward. He said after the game that he was okay, however, so Hawks fans can only cross their fingers and hope it doesn't become an issue in Game 3.

Kyle Korver scored 12 points on 4-of-11 shooting (including two threes) with one rebound and one steal in 32 minutes, but left the game late after hurting an ankle and did not return.

Korver left with the game basically in Cleveland's hands so it's possible the injury is less serious than more serious, and X-rays taken after the game were negative. Kent Bazemore (12 minutes, seven points, one steal) would step into some more minutes if Korver can't play in Game 3, and Dennis Schroder (13 points, 6-of-11 FGs, 12 minutes) could also get more minutes as long as he didn't shoot himself into the doghouse tonight. We'll update Korver's status as soon as we learn more.
May 22 - 11:14 PM

LeBron James scored 30 points on 10-of-22 shooting (2-of-7 3PTs, 8-of-11 FTs) with nine rebounds, 11 assists and one block as the Cavs trounced the Hawks in Friday's Game 2 win.

It's unfair to ask any one player to guard LeBron and the Hawks' scheme has been borderline belligerent on top of that. The scary part is that he is appears to be toying with the Hawks, settling for outside looks rather than punishing Atlanta for their lack of size. Game 3 is Sunday in Cleveland.

DeMarre Carroll (knee) will start in Friday's Game 2 against the Cavs.

Carroll was wincing throughout warmups and owners have to plan for some sort of limitation. Kent Bazemore and Paul Millsap may end up picking up the slack on LeBron James. If Carroll falters then Bazemore stands to gain the most here in terms of playing time, but his numbers could suffer if he has to cover LeBron a lot. Kyle Korver could also get some time on the King.

Kyrie Irving (knee) will not play against the Hawks on Friday night.

Coach David Blatt called it a "medical decision" for Irving to sit tonight. He went to visit Dr. James Andrews today to confirm the tendinitis issue. With Irving out, Matthew Dellavedova will get the start with J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert getting more run.
May 22 - 7:00 PM

Kyrie Irving arrived at the Philips Arena with a suit bag and it "seems like he'll be in street clothes," according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst.

We'll let you know if Kyrie is going to warm up for this one, but most signs point to him getting some rest today. If he's out, Matthew Dellavedova would start while Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith would play more.
