The Knicks (7-5) are in Charlotte to take on the Hornets (6-7)

The New York Knicks have been an enigma this season. They are above .500, but can’t seem to develop the consistency that they had in the second half of last season.

Tom Thibodeau is frustrated, but they have a great opportunity to snag another win away from home. New York is 5-1 on the road with impressive wins against the Bulls, Bucks, and Sixers.

The Hornets are a game below .500, but they might be the most exciting team in the NBA. With LaMelo Ball throwing lobs to Miles Bridges, Friday’s game is must-see television.

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