The Knicks turned in one of their worst defensive performances of the season, allowing the Lakers to hit 56 percent from the field in a 20-point road loss. New York has dropped 12 of 16 and is 6-17 on the road. The club is three games out of 8th place in the East.

This is one the worst efforts we've seen the Knicks give defensively this season. Jeff Hornacek looking to Ron Baker to try to steady things early in the fourth quarter. Maybe he can slow Jordan Clarkson down. Clarkson has hit 10 of 16 shots and handed out 8 assists off the bench.

Tim Hardaway Jr. has hit 11 of his last 14 threes. His two threes in the first two minutes of the second half have helped the Knicks take a 4-point lead after an awful defensive first half in Los Angeles.

Knicks and Rangers both play in the Staples Center today. The two teams - both tenants of Madison Square Garden - haven't played in the same road building since 1957.

Knicks are shooting 60 percent from the floor but trail the Lakers by four. Why? They're simply getting out hustled. Los Angeles has doubles the Knicks' offensive rebound totally (8 to 4) and has gotten to several loose balls early on.

Walt "Clyde" Frazier, the Knicks television analyst, jokes on MSG Network that he's keeping his hands ready today after he suffered a scratched cornea when an errant basketball hit him in the face against Memphis on Wednesday.

Jeff Hornacek isn't happy with his club right now. The Knicks have allowed the Lakers to shoot 52 percent in the first 15 minutes today. Kyle Kuzma scores 10 points in 5 minutes as NYK has struggled with some of its pick and roll overages.

Kanter trolls LeBron again, gets warning

Enes Kanter said that a former teammate told him LeBron James will get his revenge after the Knicks' big man again trolled James on Twitter.

I think Kemba Walker would be a fantastic addition for the Knicks (and many other teams) but Charlotte appears eager to shed an additional contract in a Walker deal, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. I'd be wary of taking back an additional long-term contract in any trade if I'm the Knicks.

Important win for the Knicks on the road in Utah. Tim Hardaway Jr. led NYK with 31 points, knocking down 6 of 7 3-point attempts in a game the Knicks nearly gave away. New York needed this win after losing 11 of its last 14 and coming off of a bad loss in Memphis on Wednesday.

Doesn't get much worse than this for Jeff Hornacek: Knicks give up an offensive rebound off of a missed free throw and then foul a 3-point shooter. NYK was up 10 with two minutes to go and is up just four with 1:40 play.

Interesting to see Jeff Hornacek go to Trey Burke instead of Frank Ntilikina early in the fourth.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Jeff Hornacek has talked often about an opponent eating into a Knicks lead with strong 3-point shooting. Tim Hardaway Jr. just did the same thing for Hornacek's team, knocking down two threes late in the third to give NYK a 7-point lead heading into the 4th.
