Will Lin and Anthony mesh?

Carmelo Anthony's and Jeremy Lin's first game together wasn't a disaster, but it was a loss -- a 100-92 result against the New Jersey Nets. Lin and Anthony played relatively well together, but it may still take some time before they really start to gel.

Is New York playoff-bound?

The Knicks are certainly in a better position than they were at the start of Jeremy Lin's breakout, but a below-.500 record is still a below-.500 record. They're not too far out of the playoff race, but can they climb out of the hole they dug for themselves in their first few games?
