New York Knicks
For the first time in 31 years, the Knicks will play somewhere other than Madison Square Garden on the afternoon of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
The 30-year tradition will move on borough away so that preparations for the Grammy’s, which will be at MSG later this month, can begin.
Those preparations will send the Knicks on a season-long seven-game road trip that may crush any hope the team has of getting back into the playoff race.
Tim Hardaway Jr. is back. He played 33 minutes yesterday and scored 25 in his second game back since missing over a month with a stress reaction in his shin.
The Knicks were in control against the Pelicans but folded in the fourth quarter, allowed New Orleans to tie the game, and then lost it in overtime. Kristaps Porzingis went 0-for-4 in the fourth quarter and missed a shot that could have iced the game with ten seconds left in regulation.
Anthony Davis, meanwhile, torched him for 45 points.
Trey Burke has officially signed with the Knicks after spending the season to this point with the G-League affiliate. He will likely debut some time on this trip.
Brooklyn lost yet another close game over the weekend, taking Washington to overtime before losing in the extra period. The Nets have now lost four of their last five games, but those losses include a two-point loss to Boston and a one-point loss to Toronto, in addition to Saturday’s loss versus Washington.
D’Angelo Russell won’t make his return today, but it’s coming soon. The whispers are getting louder and it seems like we should expect his return well before the month is through.
Jahlil Okafor continues to play roughly ten minutes a game off the bench. He scored 17 points in 12 minutes two games ago, against Atlanta.
It was the first time a center scored at least 17 points with no rebounds, nor blocks, since Rick Smitts in 2000.

Free New York Knicks vs. Brooklyn Nets NBA Prediction: the Knicks could surprise us.
My head says the Nets are the pick. They have the extra rest, are at home and have been playing the better basketball. They’re also only giving away two points. But if we’re going to get a dire effort from the Knicks, it’s going to be in this game.
They are under heavy scrutiny and I don’t think their team spirit is broken quite yet. I’m staying away.
