This next stop might be a lot easier than you would normally expect. Playing without Paul George and Patrick Beverley, the Los Angeles Clippers were just embarrassed on their home floor by Ja Morant (…sigh…this team is perpetually one pick away, aren’t they?) and the Memphis Grizzlies just last night, so the quick turnaround should also help the Knicks a lot.
The shorthanded Clippers are obviously still much better than the Knicks, but if you’re going to steal a game, this is ripe for the stealing. Kawhi playing a day game after a night game? With his injury issues? It could get interesting.
Anyhow, let’s go! Knicks?
