The Knicks are back at Madison Square Garden tonight where they have had great success this season.

They are 7-3 are the World’s Most Famous Arena, averaging 109.8 points per game compared to 94.0 on the road.

2 Don't Judge KP

After a blazing start to the season, Kristaps Porzingis has cooled off a bit the past few games. Porzingis is shooting just 34% (18 of 53) from the field in the Knicks past three games.

However, coach Jeff Hornacek isn’t worried. “Didn’t Aaron Judge kind of just go through this?” Hornacek said Sunday after practice. “So relax, people, relax. He’ll be all right, just like Aaron Judge.”

3 Battle Of Streaks

The Clippers enter tonight’s game on an eight-game losing streak, while the Knicks have lost 10 straight games against the Clippers.

One streak will end tonight, but which one will it be?

Tim Hardaway Jr. talks to Rebecca Haarlow about his injury that forced him out of the Knicks-Raptors tilt, and whether he'll be ready for Monday's game against the Clippers.

Both teams are dealing with injury issues for tonight’s game.

For the Knicks, Tim Hardaway Jr. didn’t practice Sunday after leaving Friday’s game with a foot injury and is questionable for tonight.

Meanwhile, the Clippers will be without Danilo Gallinari and Milos Teodosic but Patrick Beverley is expected to return after missing five games.

5 Battle Of The Boards
