Knicks vs. Hornets (Game 37): Jan. 13th, 12:00 PM EST
New York Knicks: 23-13 (13-5 at home)
New Orleans Hornets: 11-25 (5-12 on road)
Head-to-Head: Knicks Lead 1-0
The first time the Knicks played the Hornets, they thumped them by 22 points. Even with Anthony Davis in the line-up this time around, I still think the Knicks easily win.
New Orleans is on a little streak here, winning their four past games. Impressive wins too - Minny, Houston, San Antonio and Dallas.
The Knicks, on the other hand, are losers of three in a row.
It would be nice to break those streaks today.
Anyone else think Austin Rivers should have stayed in school another year or two? The kid just doesn’t seem ready yet.
Key Matchup: Anthony Davis vs. Carmelo Anthony - With Camby out, Melo may be shifted over to the four again. If so, he’ll have his hands full with Davis.
EDIT 10:36 AM EST - Copeland and White are getting the start.
