Based on the sheer number of highly anticipated games on the New York Knicks' 2013-14 schedule, Carmelo Anthony and Co. might want to think about cutting down on their rivalries. It seems like every game on the docket has a dramatic backstory—or at least an unusual subplot or two.
Some upcoming contests have a little extra juice, though.
For example, it's going to be difficult to keep the roof on Madison Square Garden when Jeremy Lin and Dwight Howard come to town on Nov. 14.
And get ready for an epic showdown with the fate of New York's basketball supremacy hanging in the balance when the Knicks head to the Barclays Center to face the loaded Brooklyn Nets on Dec. 5.
Most diehards will be pumped for all 82 tilts on the calendar, but there are 10 games that warrant immediate circling.
