Thunder sixth man Kevin Martin has struggled on the road this season, which can be a tad intimidating when your next appearance is on the biggest stage of all. Oklahoma City (44-16) faces the New York Knicks (36-21) at 7 p.m. today in Madison Square Garden – aka The World's Most Famous Arena, where visitors can earn an official stamp of approval with a superlative effort. If you can make shots there, you can make shots anywhere. It's up to you, New York, New York. The affable Martin has been able to tolerate his road struggles whenever they occur, playfully joking he forgot to pack his jumper for the trip. Last Friday's last-second loss at Denver was intolerable, however. Martin went 1 for 5 from the field in the 105-103 loss to the Nuggets. He missed his first four attempts and finished with three points and four turnovers. Perhaps even more distressing was that Martin hoisted just five shots in 24:21 of playing time.
