Quick Preview

Lakers (13-14) vs. Knicks (20-7)
3:00 PM EST

LAKERS
8-6 at home
Won last 4
5-4 vs. East

PROBABLE STARTERS
Steve Nash 7.0 points, 5.7 assists, 3.0 rebounds
Jodie Meeks 8.6 points, 0.9 assists, 2.2 rebounds
Kobe Bryant 29.7 points, 5.0 assists, 5.4 rebounds
Pau Gasol 12.3 points, 3.7 assists, 8.9 rebounds
Dwight Howard 17.8 points, 2.0 assists, 11.9 rebounds

KNICKS
8-5 on the road
Won last 1
7-4 vs. the West

PROBABLE STARTERS
Raymond Felton 16.0 points, 6.3 assists, 3.0 rebounds
Jason Kidd 8.2 points, 3.7 assists, 4.2 rebounds
Ronnie Brewer 5.4 points, 1.2 assists, 3.1 rebounds
Carmelo Anthony 28.3 points, 1.9 assists, 6.1 rebounds
Tyson Chandler 12.8 points,0.7 assists, 9.9 rebounds

PREDICTION
Earlier this month the Knicks sprinted out to a 14-point lead at the end of the first quarter. By the half the Lakers were in a 19 point hole, but Carmelo Anthony was out with an ankle injury. The Lakers chipped away and made it respectable, losing 116-107.

Those Lakers had lost their fourth straight and were missing two key starters. These Lakers have won four straight and seem to be surging closer to full health. After crunching the numbers, this game is a push. Given that it's on LA's court and Steve Nash is back, LA's ability to push the ball in response to New York's aggressiveness and LA's home crowd seem to give LA the advantage.

Lakers 105
Knicks 104

We can do this. Get an extension to our winning streak. Especially after losing to NY already, this is a great way to see if the team is making any improvements.

I think we'll get off to a hot start, go down double digits by halftime, then finish off strong with a 6 point win. :jam2:

No back to back, had a day break and beat Minnesota last. With that said, we have slacked on D a bit as of late and the Lakers are finally starting to get things going. Should be a good game.

now Nash is the one handling the ball = less turn over = less fast break point for Knicks = we can have good game and possibly a huge win

soo Morris is starting and guarding melo? what happened to metta starting when we play certain teams....

I expect ANOTHER 20+ point 1st quarter from melo for sure if Morris is starting.

Dantoni is so dumb some times! just start metta!!! don't let melo get going early or were done...AGAIN

Wishing us all a very Merry Christmas with a victory today. There has to be some kind of defense to at least hinder Melo let alone lock him down. That is the key.

metta should start for games like this. it's just stupid to think Morris can guard him and do anything on O against elite teams. terrible coaching decision and could do damage to metta. what's the point if Morris will only be on melo for 5 mins and the rest metta. is that 5 mins worth giving melo a huge start and momentum like last game that well never recover from? no.
