New York vs. Los Angeles Clippers
The New York Knicks take on the Los Angeles Clippers today they will likely be without the services of Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler. Although JR Smith has stepped up his game in their absence the Knicks are only playing .500 over the last 10 games. Conversely the Clippers are are starting to get healthy and almost have their full compliment of players getting ready for the playoffs. Caron Butler should return to the team today while Chauncey Billups and Grant Hill continue to work their way back into the rotation. Both teams are currently the 3rd seed in their respective conferences, but New York has aspirations on the two spot. A win today at the Staples Center would help them towards achieving that goal, but that result is unlikely. The Clippers are rested and Lob City is primed to make some SportsCenter highlights this afternoon. Look for the Clippers to win big.
