New York Knicks Host Los Angeles Clippers Tonight

Gabe Feller-CohenContributor IIIFebruary 9, 2011

The New York Knicks will be hosting the Los Angeles Clippers tonight at the Garden.

The Clips' record is currently at a poor 19-32, as the Knicks look to supply LA with another loss.

Last time these two teams played, the Knicks took the win 124-115 on the back of Amar'e Stoudemire's 39 points and 11 rebounds. His outstanding numbers were eclipsed by rookie-phenom Blake Griffin's 44 and 15 and the dunk of the season.

Tonight, the Knicks will be without Ronny Turiaf (ankle), and the Clippers will be without Eric Gordon and Chris Kaman.

Without Gordon, all the Knicks have to worry about is Griffin. But as Griffin showed against the Knicks the first time around, he can carry a team. The Knicks would like to control the pace but the Clippers like to run, as it opens up alley-oops for Griffin and DeAndre Jordan.

If all goes as planned, the New York Knicks should come away with a victory tonight.
