On Tuesday, April 20th, the Charlotte Hornets, and New York Knicks meet for the second time this season. Charlotte won the initial meeting on January 11th (109-88) extending their winning streak to five games versus the Knicks. The final meeting between the teams will occur on May 15th.
The Knicks hold the all-time record between the clubs with 59 wins in 112 meetings. Last season, the teams played three times with Hornets sweeping the regular-season series.
Injury woes are plaguing the Hornets as they continue to plummet down the ladder. While they hold a five-game pad over the trio of teams battling for the 10th seed it’s not inconceivable they could fall right out of the postseason play altogether.
Half of their remaining games are against currently seeded clubs and another three games feature two of the teams (Wizards and Bulls x 2) trying to get into the play-in tournament.
Their victory versus the Blazers halted a four-game losing streak with a 44 point opening frame and 34 points, 10 assists double-double from Terry Rozier.
PJ Washington (23), Miles Bridges (19), and Jalen McDaniels (13) were the other double-figure contributors.
LaMelo Ball (wrist), Gordon Hayward (foot), Malik Monk (ankle), and Nate Darling (ankle) are all out. Devonte Graham (quad) is listed as day-to-day.
New York Knicks
This past offseason when the Knicks hired Leon Rose and Tom Thibodeau as the new GM and head coach the thinking was the club would take a slow and steady approach to return the franchise into the East’s elite.
Building culture and good habits were among the key priorities. In the early stages of the season, Thibodeau got his roster to commit to the defensive end of the court and that helped New York establish itself on the playoff ladder.
But recently, it’s the offense that is showing signs of improvement which they’ve found just in time given the harrowing closing schedule they’ll play down the stretch.
They begin week 18 on a six-game winning streak having beat the Lakers, Mavericks, and Pelicans (twice) last week.
They’ll face an Eastern slate this week with the Hornets, Hawks, and Raptors on tap, and their sights firmly set on catching the Celtics and Hawks who reside just a half-game up in the fourth and fifth seeds.
Their most recent victory featured a double-digit victory versus the Pelicans with Julius Randle delivering a double-double of 33 points and 10 assists plus five rebounds and five steals.
John Henson is day-to-day with a calf injury Mitchell Robinson is out indefinitely with a fractured foot.
