Did Mike D'Antoni tip his hand on the starting five for opening night? When he named his starters for tonight's preseason game against the Wizards (NOTE: 6 p.m. tip-off), he said he was "just going traditional." That means:
The Wizards will be without Gilbert Arenas (hamstring), but John Wall makes his Garden debut . . . at least preseason debut.
Bill Walker (ankle) remains out for the Knicks.
