What to Know

The Knicks will be playing the full four quarters on Thursday, but they’re expected to have things wrapped up well before that. Having just played yesterday, they will get right back to it and host the Washington Wizards at 7:30 p.m. ET on January 18th at Madison Square Garden. The Wizards took a loss in their last matchup and will be looking to turn the tables on the Knicks, who come in off a win.

After a 137-115 finish the last time they played, the Knicks and the Rockets decided to play a little more cautiously this time around. New York took down Houston 109-94 on Wednesday.

The Knicks’ success was the result of a balanced attack that saw several players step up, but Julius Randle led the charge by scoring 31 points along with eight rebounds. Jalen Brunson was another key contributor, scoring 30 points along with seven assists.

Meanwhile, Washington couldn’t handle Detroit on Monday and fell 129-117.

Despite the loss, the Wizards had strong showings from Tyus Jones, who scored 22 points along with seven assists and six rebounds, and Kyle Kuzma, who scored 21 points along with eight rebounds and three steals.

Thursday’s contest is shaping up to be a scrappy match: The Knicks have been smashing the glass this season, having averaged 46 rebounds per game (they’re ranked fifth in rebounds per game overall). It’s a different story for the Wizards, though, as they’ve been averaging only 39.7 rebounds per game. Given the Knicks’ sizeable advantage in that area, the Wizards will need to find a way to close that gap.
