New York Knicks at Denver Nuggets – November 16th 1999.

Due to the current lockout, instead of watching the first full season with Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire on the Knicks, we are left to imagine what could have been. Many, including myself, have anticipated this season to be one of the Knicks’ more successful years in more than a decade.

Since, once we finally have a respectable team, we miss at least one month of this season, I thought I would look back at the season of 1999-2000; one of the Knicks’ more successful squads in the past 15 years. I’m going to start this series and see where it goes. Please send me your thoughts on this series and let me know if you think it should be scrapped or continued.

 

NOVEMBER 16rd, 1999.
New York Knicks @ Denver Nuggets.
Final Score: 102-95.
Knicks’ Record 5-4; 1st place in the Atlantic Division.

 

Knicks’ high scorer: Latrell Sprewell – 26; high assists: Charlie Ward – 6; high rebounder: Larry Johnson- 7.
Nuggets’ high scorer: Ron Mercer – 30; high assists: Nick Van Exel – 7; high rebounder: Ron Mercer-7.



Tonight, November 16th, 2011, the New York Knicks were set to travel to Denver to play the Denver Nuggets.

This game was set to be Carmelo Anthony’s return to Denver after leaving mid-way through the season. However, due to the ongoing lockout, this game, along with every game up through December 15, has been canceled.

Strangely enough, on November 16th, 1999, the Knicks headed out to Denver and beat the Nuggets by a score of 102-95.
