TNT’s doubleheader nightcap features Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks taking on DeMarcus Cousins and the Sacramento Kings.
The matchup will feature two sub par .500 teams, but do offer a couple of veteran and rookie stars in the contests.
The Knicks haven’t had any luck in their past 3 games, which includes a blowout loss on Wednesday to Utah.
The Kings do come in off a win against the same Jazz team on Tuesday night.
The Knicks have looked rather sluggish during this current 3 game losing streak.
New York has averaged a mere 91 points during this losing streak and failed to hit that mark on Wednesday as the Jazz steam rolled them 106-85.
F Carmelo Anthony can get a lot of the blame for their losing ways as his shooting hasn’t helped out anyone’s cause. Anthony shot just 3 of 11 against Utah on Wednesday for 12 points.
During this cold stretch, Melo has shot a combined 15 for 46 and is averaging just over 15 points per game.
Kristaps Porzingis also looked horrid in the loss to Utah as he had just 4 points on 2 of 8 shooting. Head coach Derek Fisher hinted that the starting lineup may see some changes here on Thursday.
The Kings come fresh off a victory over the Utah Jazz on Tuesday 114-106. C DeMarcus Cousins finished with 23 points and 12 rebounds in the win.
Cousins though, has more problems to deal with. The star center has already battled his achilles tendon being injured, along with a back injury. Now Cousins is dealing with tendinitis in both feet heading into Thursday’s matchup.
However, Cousins did say that he is going to be in the lineup come Thursday.
Along with Cousins leading the way, point guard Rajon Rondo is also having himself a nice season. Rondo turned in his 13th double digit assist night of the season as he put up 17 points and 13 assists on Tuesday.
F Omir Casspi also has played a nice role for the Kings this season as he recorded his 2nd double-double on Tuesday with 19 points and 10 rebounds in the win.
