The Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks are always prepared to put on an exciting performance at Madison Square Garden. The New York Knicks are trying to climb up the Eastern Conference, but they've gone just 5-5 over their most recent 10 games. The Los Angeles Lakers are similarly desperate to improve their position, but they're dealing with key injuries and have gone just 4-6 over their last 10 matches.
The Lakers' offence is a force while their defence struggles, averaging 116.8 points per game (6th in the NBA) on 48.0% from the field (9th in the NBA) and 55.7% from two-point range (8th in the NBA). The Knicks like to smother opponents from three-point range, allowing just 112.4 points per game (12th in the NBA) on 45.3% from the field (3rd in the NBA) and 34.9% from three-point range (5th in the NBA).
Expect a big performance from some of the Lakers' returning stars. Unfortunately, their defence doesn't project to be able to keep up with the Knicks. Given that both teams have the personnel to excel on the break, expect a fast-paced New York victory.
There are a couple of ways that the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers game could go in terms of scoring, but we see them clearing the total. The New York Knicks are currently averaging a combined total of 226.7 points on a plus-1.9 points differential. The Los Angeles Lakers are averaging a combined points total of 235.0 points per game on a minus-1.4 points differential.
Over their last five games, the Los Angeles Lakers have been averaging a combined total of 233.7 points per game on a minus-4.2 points differential - while clearing 236.5 in just two of those five games. The Knicks on the other hand have been averaging a combined 238.2 points per game through their last five on a minus-5.2 points differential - clearing 236.5 in four of those five games.
Given their current runs of form, we see the Knicks and Lakers clearing 236.5 as New York's defense hasn't been the most consistent in recent games. The Lakers love to get up and down the court so expect the Knicks to oblige and run up the scoreboard!
