New York Knicks
The Knicks won exactly one game in February: a seven-point win at Orlando.
March begins with a four-game road trip against three potential playoff teams and then the Kings. At least none of them are back-to-backs.
It just feels like New York is trudging to the end of the season and there are still so many games left to be played. Of course, Kristaps Porzingis is out. No one has reported any problems thus far in his recovery from ACL surgery.
That leaves Tim Hardaway to carry the team and the Knicks really have to watch his minutes after the shin splint problems at the start of the year. He dropped 37 points in 40 minutes against Washington four games ago and followed it up with 23 in 35 minutes the game after that. Those two were on either end of the all-star break though.
Ideally, Jeff Hornacek will play him no more than 30. Meanwhile, the newly-formed trio of point guards are each playing about 25-30 minutes per game, of course, sometimes overlapped.
Trey Burke and Emmanuel Mudiay have joined Frank Ntilikina as potential point guards of the future and it seems like the Knicks truly believe any of the three could be long-term assets for the club.
Mudiay scored a Knicks career-high 20 points in the last game against the Warriors. Burke is on a run of 26, 26 and 18 over his last three. Ntilikina continues to make strides in his rookie season.
Los Angeles Clippers
Los Angeles hasn’t lost consecutive games in over a month. The Clippers have won two, lost one, won three, lost one, won two, lost one and won another two before losing on Wednesday night at home against the Rockets.
James Harden was sick again and crossed up Wesley Johnson in the first quarter, staring at the crumpled victim before draining a three-pointer.
That was the Clippers’ first time back at home after a successful seven-game road trip. Wednesday night was the start of a six-game home stand.
The next two should be a piece of cake with New York, followed by Brooklyn. After is New Orleans, Cleveland and Orlando.
The Clips are even in the loss column and one win behind Denver for the eighth spot in the Western Conference. OKC is two games better than the Nuggets but with a bear of a schedule down the stretch.
The Pelicans and Blazers are tied with the Thunder too so there are still a number of teams the Clippers could potentially bump. There are ten teams fighting for eight spots, with the Jazz just behind LA.
