Current Records: Los Angeles 23-28; New York 27-24

What to Know

The Los Angeles Lakers need to shore up a defense that is allowing 118.18 points per matchup before their game Tuesday. They might have tired legs after a contest yesterday as they head on the road against the New York Knicks at 7:30 p.m. ET Jan. 31 at Madison Square Garden. The neutral point spread forecasts a close one for these two.

Los Angeles received a tough blow on Monday as they fell 121-104 to the Brooklyn Nets. Point guard Dennis Schroder wasn’t much of a difference maker for the Lakers; Schroder finished with ten points on 2-for-15 shooting in his 33 minutes on the court.

Meanwhile, New York came up short against Brooklyn this past Saturday, falling 122-115. Despite the defeat, New York had strong showings from point guard Jalen Brunson, who had 26 points, and small forward R.J. Barrett, who had 24 points in addition to six rebounds.

Los Angeles is now 23-28 while the Knicks sit at 27-24. Los Angeles is 11-16 after losses this season, New York 11-12.
