Matchup to Watch
Carmelo Anthony vs. P.J. Hairston: Anthony is once again an All-Star and continues to be one of the toughest covers in the Eastern Conference.
▪ Knicks fans booed on draft night when the team drafted Kristaps Porzingis. Now they adore the big, versatile rookie who has been playing through a sore foot of late.
▪ This is the second game of back-to-backs for both teams. The Knicks played at home against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Hornets played Friday at the Orlando Magic.
▪ The Hornets played in Orlando without starters Nic Batum (sprained toe) and Cody Zeller (shoulder strain).
▪ This is the only home game in a seven-game span for the Hornets. They leave Sunday for Sacramento and the start of a four-game West Coast trip.
