Knicks Schedule Highlights

It’s a good thing the Knicks will be well-rested after the All-Star break because the second half of the season starts with a bang. New York will embark on a four-game “road trip” to start things off. “Road trip” is in quotations because the last two games are against the Brooklyn Nets and Philadelphia 76ers. Still, they have to face the Sixers, Nets, and Bucks in the span of six days.

The toughest road trip of the season will come in May when the Knicks travel out west for games against the Rockets, Grizzlies, Nuggets, Suns, Clippers, and Lakers. The Knicks’ playoff hopes could hinge on that Western Conference road trip.

The Knicks will make up their game against the San Antonio Spurs on May 13. The game was originally postponed due to COVID-19 protocols.

The Knicks have five nationally televised games during the second half (all airing on ESPN):

  • @ Brooklyn — March 15 — 8 p.m.
  • vs. LA Lakers — April 12 — 7:30 p.m.
  • vs. New Orleans — April 18 — 7:30 p.m.
  • vs. Toronto — April 24 — 7:30 p.m.
  • vs. Chicago — April 28 — 7:30 p.m.
