Tyson Chandler took a seat Saturday and began watching some film of the Dallas Mavericks. And as the film rolled, the New York Knicks' center started feeling a bit queasy.

The uneasiness from Chandler came because everyone knows he helped change the defensive culture for the Mavs, and that he was the defensive backbone on a team that won its only NBA championship last season. But after just one year with the Mavs, Chandler is patrolling the middle for a Knicks squad that will host the Mavs at noon today at Madison Square Garden.

And that national ABC-TV matchup against his old buddies is making Chandler a bit antsy.

"It felt weird [Saturday] scouting and going over the films and watching them play," Chandler said after Saturday's practice. "It was just like an eerie feeling."
