The New York Knicks are traveling south to take on the Orlando Magic. Here’s a look at everything you need to know for Friday Night Knicks.

New York Knicks had a day to breathe after a wild double-overtime win on Wednesday, but it’s back to the grindstone.

The Knicks have a home-and-home series with the Orlando Magic on Friday and Sunday. Evan Fournier will have a shot at another former team after dropping 32 points on the Boston Celtics.

Orlando dropped their season opener on Wednesday to the San Antonio Spurs. Most experts are picking the Magic to finish in the cellar this season. It’s up to the Knicks to take advantage of this matchup.
