Knicks vs Wizards
The New York Knicks battled through four overtimes in Atlanta on Sunday afternoon only to fall 142-139, losing for the 15th time in their last 20 games. The Wizards are trending in the opposite direction with wins in four straight and 11 of 13 to keep the pressure on the Hawks atop the Southeast Division.
Pelicans vs Raptors
The Toronto Raptors are losers of six of their last seven games and are even struggling against sub-.500 clubs. The New Orleans Pelicans, who sit 10 games under .500, are desperately trying to right the ship and make a run at the playoffs.
Kings vs Rockets
The Houston Rockets are suffering their worst stretch of the season with seven losses in 11 games. They begin a stretch in which Houston plays eight of 10 at home, while the Kings are playing the finale of an eight-game road trip.
Thunder vs Spurs
Russell Westbrook’s latest triple-double didn’t result in a victory and that is a rare occurrence for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Westbrook attempts to record triple-double No. 25 on the season. It will be no easy task against the San Antonio Spurs.
Hornets vs Trail Blazers
The Charlotte Hornets can’t quite seem to figure out a way out of their current funk and dropped four straight and 11 of 15 to fall two games under .500. The schedule only gets tougher on Tuesday, when the Hornets kick off a three-game road trip that stops in Golden State and Utah by visiting the Portland Trail Blazers.
Nuggets vs Lakers
The Denver Nuggets are thriving whenever they visit the Los Angeles Lakers. Denver recorded a 127-121 victory in Los Angeles on January 17, marking their seventh consecutive win at the Staples Center.
