1. J.R., STAT add to Knicks' depth


Coach Woodson gave some indication of his intended rotations in this game, as both J.R. Smith and Amar'e Stoudemire made their returns from injuries. Getting these two key pieces back make the Knicks are a very deep team.
No matter who starts, there are very capable players coming off the bench at every position; the Knicks should be able to wear down opposing teams throughout the course of a game. And if unfortunate injuries occur, there will always be someone ready to step up.
