D’Antoni, Nash to Meet Again at Garden; Walsh: Curry May Play Tuesday
GREENBURGH, N.Y. — Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni insists he won’t feel any twinge of emotion when he faces Steve Nash and the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden.
“No, I think I’m over that. I think I’ve got enough emotions going on right now with my team so I can’t worry about getting wrapped up in theirs,” D’Antoni, who coached in Phoenix for five years before coming to the Knicks last year, said with a laugh after practice Monday.
The Knicks (3-14) will take a five-game losing streak into the game with Phoenix (14-3), which leads the Lakers by a half-game for first place in the Pacific Division of the NBA’s Western Conference.
