Two stars will take center stage in a game between two bad teams as Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks take on Kobe Bryant and the Lakers.
Both teams certainly out of their respective playoff races, will force the attention to fall on the stars.
New York Knicks
Carmelo Anthony has certainly taken his frustrations out this season at times.
From calling out the teams struggles, to telling a fan to ask the owner for his money back. The Knicks have been a mess this season and it all started to come to a crumbling halt when head coach Derek Fisher was fired.
New York sits 13 games below the .500 mark and with the except of Porzingis and Carmelo Anthony, this team really doesn’t offer much in terms of threats. The Knicks average under 100 points this season and defensively they’ve struggled, allowing 102 points per game.
The road also hasn’t been kind to New York. The Knicks have gone just 11-22 away from MSG. However, they’ve been a solid bet on the road, going 20-13 ATS.
Los Angeles Lakers
Kobe Bryant and Carmelo Anthony have had some epic battles throughout their careers. Bryant will look to get the leg up on Carmelo one last time in his career.
The Lakers saw their 2 game winning streak come to an end when Lebron James and the Cavaliers came to town on Thursday. The Lakers hung with them for a half, but couldn’t keep pace as the Cavs pulled away in the 3rd quarter.
Los Angeles has shown recently they have a lot of youth that has potential as they continue to grow. And thats been the real key, the growth. Yes the results aren’t there for LA right now, but they continue to see improvements and are in games more and more.
The Lakers met with the Knicks back on 11/8 in MSG and gave them all they could handle, but eventually fell 99-95.
