The Bockers play their first of two straight games in the Staples Center today (thankfully not back-to-back) against the Clippers. Thankfully, some load management is making the Clips a little (lot) short-handed:
No Kawhi Leonard against the Knicks. It would have been the second game of a back-to-back for Leonard. Paul George/Patrick Beverley’s statuses for the NYK game are unclear: https://t.co/FNrM7oV7Wv— Ian Begley (@IanBegley) January 5, 2020
OK, but maybe not THAT short-handed:

The Knicks, meanwhile, are without new dad Elfrid Payton, and Dennis Smith Jr. remains out as well:
Frank Ntilikina will start at PG, Mike Miller says. https://t.co/TDyDb1iQl0— Ian Begley (@IanBegley) January 5, 2020
Sounds like a heavy dose of Frank incoming, which I’m sure will make everyone happy and not cause any polarization of any sort. And maybe some Point RJ? Unless the Knicks had Kadeem Allen called up already. I dunno! Should be fun! (Or not fun, jury’s out.)
Game starts at 3:30 PM on MSG. Clips Nation is your home for Clip coverage. Please don’t post illegal streams or large images/gifs. Be nice. Go the Knicks!
