What to Know

The New York Knicks are getting right back to it as they host the Minnesota Timberwolves at 7:30 p.m. ET Jan. 18 at Madison Square Garden. Minnesota should still be riding high after a big win, while the Knicks will be looking to right the ship.

New York came up short against the Charlotte Hornets on Monday, falling 97-87. New York was down 86-67 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. Small forward R.J. Barrett (18 points) and power forward Julius Randle (18 points) were the top scorers for New York.

Meanwhile, Minnesota made easy work of the Golden State Warriors on Sunday and carried off a 119-99 victory. The Timberwolves’ center Karl-Anthony Towns did his thing and dropped a double-double on 26 points and 11 boards.

The Knicks are expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten the Orlando Magic Nov. 17 easily too and instead slipped up with a 104-98. In other words, don’t count Minnesota out just yet.
