    Game Preview

    NEW YORK -- Just one-for-November, the Los Angeles Clippers head to Madison Square Garden on Monday night for a showdown with the recently inconsistent New York Knicks.

    The source of New York's up-and-down play over the last two weeks: leading scorer Kristaps Porzingis.

    After shooting 49 of 82 (58.8 percent) over the previous four games, all Knicks wins, Porzingis is since just 18 of 53 (34 percent). On Friday in a 107-84 loss at Toronto, New York's biggest defeat of the season, Porzingis had just 13 points on 3-of-13 shooting.

    The big man, it seems, is not perfect.

    "Didn't Aaron Judge kind of just go through this?" Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek joked with reporters after practice Sunday. "So relax, people, relax, people. He'll be all right, just like Aaron Judge."

    Unfortunately for the Knicks, they didn't offer much support of Porzingis against the Raptors. Tim Hardaway Jr. scored just 13 points and Enes Kanter had 12.

    Some are wondering if Porzingis' recent issues are the result of a sore elbow, which caused him to miss one game this season and has bothered him in the past.

    Porzingis would not buy into that notion on Sunday.

    "I've got to fix all the little details," Porzingis said. "Look at the film, look at my shots and not overthink about it. Sometimes there are good shots, but it's just in and out. The elbow is not bothering me at all. I don't want to blame it on the elbow. Get some rest and not overthink about those kinds of things."

    The Clippers, losers of eight consecutive games and 10 of 11, are also getting production out of their best player, power forward Blake Griffin, but with Chris Paul jettisoned to Houston, they have no one to run the show.

    The starting backcourt of Austin Rivers and Patrick Beverley, who is expected to return on Monday after missing five games with a sore right knee, are averaging just a combined 25.7 points and 5.6 assists. Sixth man Lou Williams is contributing 17.7 points per game. Danilo Gallinari also remains out for the Clippers, who started the season 4-0 but have won just once since.

    "Obviously we get Pat back next game, which is going to help," Rivers said. "It gets us another guard in there."

    The increased workload doesn't appear to be fitting Griffin much, either. Griffin's scoring average is up 1.2 points per game to 22.8, but his field-goal shooting has fallen from 49.3 percent to 41.9 percent.

    "It's just going to be the same answer as it was before," Williams said. "Got injuries, guys are down, just keep fighting."

    The Knicks are counting on a return to form by Porzingis, who thrived during a recent 6-1 stretch for New York. Porzingis reeled off two career highs in scoring (38 and 40 points) during the run, in which he averaged better than 37 points per game. The Knicks are also hoping to see some improved rebounding numbers out of their young star, who is averaging a career-worst 7.1 boards, though he has improved his shot-blocking to 2.3 per game.

    Nice Game-Thread Rady .... looks like u giving us a 50-50 chance on a win at home .. the return of Clippers Beverley will be a good experience for rookie Frank .. So far it look like our 2 previous seasons future-star KP has return .. KP has shot 1-5 having no rebounds at end of first quarter.

    You can see why the Clips are struggling. They have one option in BG and w/o CP3 Jordan is an overpaid shot blocker rebounder. This will be a bad loss if we lose this one.

    Knicks take a 56-44 lead at the half. KP and THJ tied with 13 for the leading scorer.

    Lakers are starting Lonzo and playing him heavy minutes despite his shooting. Mavs the same with DSJ starting and doing OJT. Should the Knicks do the same with Frank, start him even though Jack right now is the better PG and player.

    Our starter lineup got 5 minute rest in the first half to have a 12 pt lead at half-time .. our bench players didnt receive warm-up minute on the court in the first half .. hope Horn dont plan on winning doing this type of coaching in the 2nd half

    Just when I said Jordan was a zero on offense he scores 8 already early in the 3rd.

    Hell NO!
    Yes, its a shame the Lakers/76ers/Mavs roster has no other choice but to play their lottery picks as starters ..
    Lonzo n Simmons b.ball potential show they are future NBA all-stars ..
    The Mavs coach Carlisle calls out plays on every Mavs offensive-possession ..
    The three rookies would b in the top 3 candidates for ROY and 6th man of the year if they came off the bench.

    Easy 107-85 win 8-3 record at MSG and breaks a 10 game losing streak to the Clips. Lot of these losing streaks to other teams falling this year and unlike the Phil years where players from other teams were making career highs against us we're turning the tables with high marks for our players.
