NEW YORK -- The Knicks went coast to coast to let Carmelo Anthony know they want him to stay in New York. Team officials travelled to Los Angeles on Thursday night to meet with the free agent, a person with knowledge of the plans said. Team President Phil Jackson and general manager Steve Mills were expected to be part of the meeting but not Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because details of the meeting were to remain private. The meeting was first reported by ESPN. Anthony was in Los Angeles to meet with the Lakers, who are among the teams hoping to convince the All-Star forward to leave New York. Anthony already visited Chicago, Houston and Dallas this week. The Knicks can offer him the largest contract, nearly $130 million over five years, though Jackson has said he hopes Anthony will take less than a maximum deal. Other teams can offer Anthony slightly less than $100 million in a four-year deal, according to NBA rules. Contracts cant be signed until July 10, so Anthony is under no rush to make a decision. But the Knicks apparently wanted to make sure they got to make a final pitch after his free agency tour. Jackson, Mills and new coach Derek Fisher had already met with Anthony last month in Los Angeles, where he informed them he would be terminating the final year of his contract and becoming a free agent. He has never said he wants to leave the Knicks, who acquired him from Denver in a February 2011 trade. But the 30-year-old forward also said his priority is contending for championships, and the Knicks were just 37-45 last season, the first time in Anthonys 11-year career that he missed the playoffs.

Authentic Nationals Jerseys . In the days leading up to the draft, TSN.ca and TSN Radio basketball analyst Duane Watson looks at some of the names that will be headlining the event. Tonight, Michigans Nik Stauskas of Mississauga, Ontario.After getting outplayed in a pair of close road losses, the Colorado Avalanche hope to regain a series lead when they return home to face the Minnesota Wild in Game 5 tonight. Colorado scored nine times en route to winning the first two games of this Western Conference first round series, but the Wild evened the best-of-seven set with a pair of defensive-minded victories on home ice. The game can be seen live on TSN at 9:30pm et/6:30pm pt. Minnesota notched a 1-0 overtime victory in Game 3 at Xcel Energy Center and then posted a 2-1 win on Thursday to knot the series at two games apiece. A switch in net has been part of the equation in getting Minnesota back in this series, but a better overall team effort on defense also has helped. Ilya Bryzgalov, the loser in Games 1 and 2, faced 45 shots in 99 minutes of action over Games 1 and 2, while Darcy Kuemper has seen just 48 pucks fired his way in 150 minutes of work. Kuemper relieved Bryzgalov in Game 2 and posted a 22-save shutout when called upon to start Game 3. The 23-year-old rookie then faced only 12 shots to post the victory on Thursday. The 12 shots allowed were a postseason club record for the Wild and the second-fewest amount of shots yielded by a team in a playoff game since 2008, behind only the 10 given up by Calgary on April 15, 2008. "We spent a lot of time in their zone, but I think were doing well without the puck. Were doing a better job of denying their speed," Wild forward Zach Parise said. Charlie Coyle and Jared Spurgeon each scored once to help Kuemper earn the win. "Ive kind of learned the importance of showing confidence in yourself because I think the players feed off that a little bit," Kuemper said.dddddddddddd "It relaxes them in the defensive zone, but its easy to do when theyre playing the way they are in front of me." Ryan OReilly registered the lone goal for Colorado, while Semyon Varlamov stopped 30 shots in the setback. Avalanche forwards Gabriel Landeskog, Nathan MacKinnon and Paul Stastny each were held without a point in Games 3 and 4 after giving Minnesota fits in the first two contests. Stastny had three goals and four assists in Games 1 and 2, MacKinnon notched a goal and six helpers in those outings and Landeskog posted three goals. Landeskog, Colorados young captain, hopes a change of venue can get the clubs offense back on track. "We know that were strong at home," Landeskog said. "Were just going to go home and regroup and get back to work on Saturday." Matt Duchene took part in an optional morning skate Saturday but will not play tonight. The Avalanches leading scorer has been out since damaging the MCL in his left knee when he ran into a teammate against San Jose on March 29. Head coach Patrick Roy will wait to see how Duchenes knee responds after todays initial practice and will have a further update on Sunday. The Avs, Central Division champions and the second seed in the West, were 26-11-4 on home ice during the 2013-14 regular season. Minnesota was just 17-17-7 on the road. Minnesotas Matt Cooke served the first contest of his seven-game suspension for kneeing Colorados Tyson Barrie in Game 3. Barrie is out four-to-six weeks with a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee. Game 6 of this set is scheduled for Monday in Minnesota. If necessary, Colorado will host Game 7 on Wednesday.
