The 11-15 New York Knicks will host Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers tonight, who played last night against the Celtics on TNT – a game they won in overtime by a final score of 88-87. The Knicks have won three consecutive games – mostly without the services or their dynamic duo of Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire, thanks to second-year, undrafted point guard, Jeremy Lin of Harvard.
During the three game winning streak Lin is averaging a shade over 25 points per game. The depleted Knicks will once again be without Melo and Amare for tonight's game. "Linsanity" may lose some steam because the Lakers surprisingly allow the least amount of points to opposing point guards this season at 15.9 per game.
Here is all the information you need to find the game tonight.
Game Date/Time: Friday, February 10, 8 p.m. ET
