Carroll vs. Anthony

The Raptors will throw a lot of different looks at the Knicks’ prolific scorer, with P.J. Tucker, Patrick Patterson and Ibaka likely to get a share of the load. Anthony is a tough cover for any of them.

The Knicks are coming off a Saturday win over Philadelphia, but remain 4 ½ games out of the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot. . . . Anthony averages 23.5 points per game and had the buzzer-beating winner against the Sixers. . . . Toronto has beaten New York five times in a row.
