Two teams on the end of a back to back, but the Knicks didn't have to play their guys into the ground given the blowout. The Charlotte Hornets are a mess with 3 straight losses, and they're still not playing a lick of defense. The Knicks beat the Hornets last week by 22 points. Like yesterday, there's no reason for the Knicks not to win this game comfortably, and they need to if they're going to end up with a decent seed this season. These are games you need to fatten up with. Give me the Knicks.
