NBA schedule 2012: Knicks try to stay unbeaten over the weekend, Nets visit Kings

The Knicks try to stay unbeaten against the Grizzlies Friday, and the Nets hit the road to take on the Kings Sunday.


The New York Knicks, looking to keep their record unblemished, finish a tough back-to-back against the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday night and host a Sunday matinee. Meanwhile the Brooklyn Nets are in Sacramento taking on the Kings Sunday evening as the NBA enters the weekend.

After rallying to beat the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday, the Knicks will be tested again in Memphis against a Grizzlies team off to a 6-1 start to their season. After a day off, New York hosts the Indiana Pacers on Sunday afternoon to complete their weekend.

The Nets, coming off a win over the Boston Celtics Thursday, don't play until Sunday evening, when they'll be in Sacramento taking on the Kings.

Elsewhere in the NBA on Friday, head coach Mike D'Antoni makes his debut with the Los Angeles Lakers as he takes on one of his former employers, the Phoenix Suns, at the Staples Center. The nine-game slate also features the Utah Jazz in Philadelphia taking on the 76ers and the Portland Trail Blazers hosting the Houston Rockets.

On Saturday, the Toronto Raptors will be in Boston facing the Celtics, along with the Charlotte Bobcats hosting the Grizzlies and the Miami Heat in Phoenix battling the Suns.

Along with the Knicks, the Raptors also host a Sunday matinee game against the Orlando Magic, while the Rockets visit the Lakers later on.
