The Knicks had a solid win over a good Pacers team and then the same old team showed up in a loss to the Brooklyn Nets, who have the fewest wins in the league. New York is well out of the playoff race and their terrible season continues in LA where they are big underdogs.
The Clippers snapped their 3-game losing streak with a blowout win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, who rested the Big 3 of the LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Love.
In their last games the Clippers beat the Cavaliers 108-78 and the Knicks lost to the Nets 121-110.
New York Knicks
This season the Knicks rank 14th in points per game and 25th in points allowed.
In the loss to the Nets in their last game the Knicks were ice cold from deep with a 3-pt FG% of only 18.8% and they committed 15 turnovers while only forcing seven. After New York was up 3 at the half they were outscored by 12 points in the 3rd quarter.
In the Nets game the Knicks shot a pretty similar FG%, but their cold shooting from beyond the 3-pt line and turnovers hurt them. It also did not help that they gave up 12 offensive boards and only had 5.
Kyle O’Quinn came off the bench to go for 23 points in the loss to Brooklyn and while Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Rose combined for 40 points they were only 13/35 from the floor and Melo missed all 6 of his 3-pointers.
Kristaps Porzingis(18 ppg 7.2 rpg) missed the Nets game with a minor injury, but is expected to go in this game.
The Knicks are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games facing the Clippers.
This season the Knicks are only 11-24 on the road.
The Clippers rank 7th in the league in points per game and 12th in points allowed.
In their win over the Cavs in their last game the Clippers were dominant on both sides of the floor, but that was without having to face LeBron and company.
In the game LA shot 51.3% from the floor and they held Cleveland to 38.6%shooting.
Blake Griffin was the high scorer for the Clippers in the Cavs game going for 23 points and it was good they did not face the Big 3, as Chris Paul struggled, big time, only going for 5 points and missing all 8 of his shots from the floor.
Griffin (21.3 ppg) leads 6 LA players that are averaging over 12 ppg.
Earlier this season in New York the Clippers beat the Knicks 119-115.
