New York (1-1) visits Los Angeles (1-2) in the second game of New York’s lone trip to California this season. Hopefully the Knicks left the bricks (eFG% 42.9, 4-21 on 3pfg) back in Oakland and can put together a solid showing on offense.
In three games so far Los Angeles is 13th in offensive efficiency (104.6), and an impressive 7th in defensive efficiency (98.8). New York will have their work cut out for them if they can’t find a way to score efficiently. Shoot 4-21 from deep will not get it done. New York needs better rebounding and much better play from the point guard position as well.
Iman Shumpert and Jared Jeffries (how will we ever replace his offense?) are out for the Knicks. For the Lakers, Matt Barnes is questionable, and Derrick Caracter is out.
