Sunday January 21 offers a meeting between the Association’s two most historic franchises the New York Knicks and the LA Lakers. The Knicks arrive having produced a rare road victory in a close affair at Utah beating the Jazz 117 – 115.
The host Lakers is also coming off a victory to the Indiana Pacers on their home court.
Last season, the squads split their two meetings, but the Knicks took the first game this season so they could sweep this season with a win tonight.
The Lakers hold the all-time record having bested the Knicks 166 of their 286 matches.
New York Knicks
The Knicks have had their issues on the road with a 6-16 record. The current road trip which covers seven cities is the longest the Knicks have faced in years. So far they’ve been ahead of the trend winning two of three (Nets/Jazz).
The return of Tim Hardaway Jr. is likely helping those efforts as the youngster lead the way with a team high 31 points in the win over the Jazz. Hardaway missed 20 consecutive games, but has played in four of the past five.
After weathering a storm of injuries all season the Knicks enter this game with a full complement of healthy players.
The Lakers win over Indy was anything but pretty. In the match Jordan Clarkson led the way scoring 33 points including 3 treys and 2 free throws. The latter holding a distinction because those were the only free throw mad by the entire Lakers team.
After losing nine straight games head coach Luke Walton implored his young squad to make a more professional effort and it’s resulted in five wins in their last seven outings.
Brandon Ingram is questionable for the game after sitting out versus the Pacers due to a wonky ankle.
Likewise Kentavious Caldwell-Pope also missed the Indiana game. KCP is nursing a right Achilles tendon strain making his appearance in this game questionable.
Rookie Lonzo Ball definitely won’t play for the fourth consecutive game as he deals with a left knee strain.
