The New York Knicks are back at it with the Orlando Magic on Sunday. Here’s everything you need to know for the game.

New York Knicks have a chance to start the year off 3-0 for the first time since the 2012-13 season. They are going to be playing in front of a raucous crowd in Madison Square Garden.

And it helps that they are running it back against the Orlando Magic two days after a 25-point beatdown in the Amway Center. The Knicks are taking more threes than anyone in the NBA and making a ton of them. They currently rank first in three-point attempts (49.5 per game) and sixth in three-point percentage (41.4%).

Let’s take a closer look at the broadcast information, odds, injury report, and projected starting lineups.
