Knicks stumble at home upon lottery Lakers

The Knicks are starting to make a habit for losing against the worst teams in the league.

Last week they were this close to fall against the Nets, after earlier in January they couldn’t beat neither the Sixers (at that time the worst team in the league) nor the Suns (currently last in the West).

On Monday night they couldn’t handle the Lakers, who hold the 14th place in the Western Conference and are coached by Phil Jackson’s disciple, Luke Walton.

The Knicks trailed by 27 before admitting defeat, 121-107 against a Lakers team that had lost their previous 12 games on the road.

Carmelo Anthony led New York with 26 points while Kristaps Porzingis contributed with 16 points and 9 rebounds.

Brandon Jennings also had 16 points, off the bench after Derrick Rose returned to the lineup and Willy Hernangomez finished the night with 8 buckets and 13 boards.

“That was embarrassing to get embarrassed like that in front of the home crowd. I don’t know what else we want. We get support, we get fans so we just gotta play with effort. We gotta play like it means something.”

Knicks fall 9 games below .500 (22-31) and will host the Clippers on Wednesday night.
