The Hornets have already qualified for the playoffs, but they still have a lot to play for. They are in a log jam in the middle of the Eastern Conference for a few teams and depending how they finish the season they can be as high as the 3rd seed or the 6th seed.
The Knicks gave people in New York optimism in the first couple of months of the season, but they fell down to earth and are eliminated from the playoffs. They have lost 4 of their last 5 games and in their last one they only scored 87 points in a loss to the Pacers.
Charlotte has been up and down as of late, but at least they are in the post-season. They are balanced ranking 8th in opponents’ points allowed and 11th in points per game.
Leading scorer Kemba Walker has been legit as of late and he is 1 of 6 players for the Hornets that are averaging in double figures.
2nd leading scorer Nicolas Batum recently injured his knee in a game and while he will not be out long he is a question mark for this game. His offense will be needed in the playoffs.
The Hornets are a few games under .500 on the road this season, but they have fared well away from Charlotte in their last few games facing teams with a losing record.
New York Knicks
The Knicks are coming off a loss to the Pacers where they shot a dismal 34.4% from the floor. Carmelo Anthony did not play, but is expected to go in this game.
Also, 2nd leading scorer rookie Kristaps Porzingis did not play and he is likely to miss this game with a shoulder injury.
The Knicks really have nothing to play for but pride and the Zen Master Phil Jackson may hope for a loss to give New York more ping-pong balls in the upcoming draft lottery.
Arron Afflalo and Robin Lopez are the other 2 New York players averaging in double figures, but they will need help in this game in the scoring department, especially facing a solid Charlotte defense.
The Knicks are 18-21 at home this season.
The Hornets have won 2 of 3 games against the Knicks this season, but both wins came at home.
This may be a preview of the first round playoff match up.
