On Monday, January 11th the New York Knicks and the Charlotte Hornets will face each other for the first time this season.
The Knicks hold the all-time record between the clubs with 59 wins in 111 meetings. Last season the teams played three times with the Hornets sweeping the regular-season series to extend their winning streak to four games.
New York Knicks
Unlike the Hornets, Tom Thibodeau’s Knicks ended at the opposite end of the spectrum losing consecutive games this weekend. First, the Oklahoma City Thunder came into MSG and manhandled the Knicks via tough-nosed defense holding New York under 100 points by virtue of a 101-89 win.
On Sunday, the Knicks fell to the Denver Nuggets who also held them to 89 points while putting up 114 to gain the “W”.
In the loss, Julius Randle did his best to keep his team in the match as he posted yet another double-double of 29 points and 10 rebounds along with five assists.
Only two other Knicks reached double-figure scoring. Specifically, Elfrid Payton collected 12 points while Mitchell Robinson delivered 11 points.
As for the battle of the Canadians, Jamal Murray got the bragging rights despite a rather meager effort of nine points and three assists.
Fellow Canuck RJ Barrett finished with the better individual effort scoring nine points, grabbing nine rebounds, and dishing four dimes although his 4 of 13 field goal efficiency was indicative of the rest of his Knicks teammates’ struggle on the offensive end.
Kevin Knox is dealing with a sore knee but is probable for Monday. Obi Toppin (calf) is out although coach Thibs thinks he’ll be back soon. Frank Ntilikina (knee) and Alec Burks (ankle) are out indefinitely.
Rookie LiMelo Ball just experienced inarguably his best games since becoming a professional in an impressive weekend of performances.
First, he gained bragging rights over his brother Lonzo when his squad defeated the Pelicans on Friday. In that victory, he came up just short of registering a triple-double.
Ball followed up that match on Sunday, by becoming the youngest player in the NBA to post a triple-double against the Hawks via his 22 points, 12 rebounds, and 11 assists.
More important than his individual accomplishments, however, is the Charlotte Hornets grabbed two crucial wins in the process. This represented the second win by the Hornets over Atlanta in as many meetings.
Terry Rozier dropped 23 points to led the scoring for his squad while PJ Washington (22), Caleb Martin (15), and Gordon Hayward (13) were the other double-figure contributors.
Cody Zeller (fractured hand) remains out until February while Grant Riller (knee) is out indefinitely.

Free New York Knicks vs. Charlotte Hornets NBA Prediction:
Two clubs experiencing vastly different momentum shifts in this early part of the season and should favor the Hornets crew.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Knicks +4.5
That said, the Knicks did well early and prior to the weekend were on a three-game win streak which emphasized defense. I think the Hornets capture the win but won’t be surprised if the Knicks keep it close.
