The team’s problems began when Carmelo Anthony arrived for pregame warm-ups wearing a brown blazer. He grabbed a seat on the bench. Based on two months of evidence, the Knicks were in big trouble even before the team disclosed that Anthony would miss Wednesday’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder with a sprained left ankle. His absence only seemed to make their prospects worse. With Anthony’s activity limited to a series of facial expressions that ranged from morose to anguished, the Thunder rode Kevin Durant’s brilliance to a 123-94 victory at Madison Square Garden, where the holiday crowd and a national television audience was treated to ugly uniforms, flimsy defense and another loss.
