New York Knicks vs San Antonio Spurs takes place on Thursday night with the Spurs attempting to maintain their impeccable home record, and the Knicks trying to maintain their early season unbeaten run. The game is scheduled to start at 8.30 p.m. ET and can be watched live on TNT and MSG, or alternatively fans can watch online through free live stream (details below).
The Spurs come into this game with a fantastic recent home record; they have won 18 of their last 19 non-play off games at home, and that record becomes 22 from 24 if including their play off games.
Meanwhile, the Knicks have surprised everyone by going 5-0, and will be hoping to keep that perfect record going a bit longer. However, New York are facing a tough challenge to go on the road against the Spurs - a team they have lost nine straight games against in San Antonio.
This game is the middle game of the three game on the road run for the Knicks. They won their first on the road game against the Orlando Magic on Tuesday evening claiming a confident 99-89 victory.
It is the first time the Knicks have begun the regular season with a 5-0 record since the 1993-1994 season - that season they ended up winning their opening seven games and went on to make an appearance in the NBA finals.
However, the Knicks have averaged just 88.6 points per game against the Spurs since 2003, and they will surely have to improve upon that tonight if they are to claim their first win in 10 in San Antonio.
The Spurs come into this game following Tuesday night's win against the Los Angeles Lakers, winning a tight game 84-82. Danny Green scored a dramatic three pointer with less than 10 seconds on the clock in that game. This match up tonight promises to be just as dramatic.
