Mike Woodson has decided to start Steve Novak at small forward on Thursday. This allows J.R. Smith and Jared Jeffries to come off the bench.
With Novak's shooting prowess, it may also open up some spacing for Carmelo Anthony, who will play power forward for the Knicks in Game 3 of their series against the Heat.
Here is the full starting five.
F Carmelo Anthony
F Steve Novak
C Tyson Chandler
G Landry Fields
G Baron Davis
