The New York Knicks (21-10) will look to put a stop to its recent losing woes on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden. However, the task will certainly not be an easy one, as the club will have to attempt to do so against the red-hot San Antonio Spurs (26-8).
The Miami Heat (20-7) will look to rebound from a tough loss when they take on the Milwaukee Bucks (15-12) at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Saturday night. The matchup against the pesky Bucks will feature the return of Dwyane Wade from a one-game suspension.
The Los Angeles Lakers (14-15) will look to rebound from a disappointing loss when they host the Portland Trail Blazers (14-13) on Friday night at the Staples Center. Although the Lakers are seemingly on a track to do better things, the Trail Blazers have been playing fairly consistent as of late.
