The New York Knicks, ranked first in the Atlantic division, will face off against the Los Angeles Clippers, ranked first in the Pacific division, today at 3:30 p.m. ET in a highly anticipated match-up. Basketball fans can watch the game on their local ABC channel.
The Knicks will be coming into today's game against the Clippers with three straight losses. Their losing streak began on March 11 when they began their road trip West to California against the Golden State Warriors (92-63), and continued in Denver on March 13 (117-94), and Portland on March 14 (105-90).
This is not the first time this season that the Knicks have come into a game with three straight losses, with the team facing a similar situation back in Jan. 13, to turn things around that game against the New Orleans Hornet, and on Feb. 22 against the Toronto Raptors, where they lost and set the team's longest losing streak at four games.
"I've got to do a better job of getting these guys over this hump," coach Mike Woodson said, according to The Associated Press. "Right now, it's tough times. We've lost some games out here on the road."
If history is to give any prediction for today's game, it bodes badly for the Knicks. The New York team faced the Clippers back on Feb. 10, where they lost 102-88.
Moreover, Knicks stars Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler may not play on Sunday, given that they weren't on the court during Thursday's game against Portland. Both Anthony and Chandler are suffering from knee injuries.
"We've got a big game on Sunday in LA so we've got to come ready to play," Woodson said.
