What to Know

The New York Knicks have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will take on the Los Angeles Lakers at 8:30 p.m. ET Saturday at Arena after having had a few days off. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this contest.

New York received a tough blow on Wednesday as they fell 120-108 to the Memphis Grizzlies. Despite the loss, the Knicks had strong showings from shooting guard Evan Fournier, who shot 8-for-12 from downtown and finished with 30 points and five rebounds, and center Mitchell Robinson, who almost posted a triple-double on 14 points, 11 boards, and eight blocks.

Los Angeles lost a heartbreaker to the Los Angeles Clippers when they met last December, and they left with a heavy heart again on Thursday. The Lakers were just a bucket short of a win and fell 111-110 to Los Angeles. Despite the defeat, Los Angeles got a solid performance out of power forward Anthony Davis, who dropped a double-double on 30 points and 17 rebounds.

New York is expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten the Orlando Magic Nov. 17 easily too and instead slipped up with a 104-98. In other words, don’t count Los Angeles out just yet.
