The Knicks welcome the Lakers to The Garden.
1 Home Cooking
Kristpas Porzingis had a game-high 30 points, eight rebounds, and three blocks in Sunday’s win.
It was KP’s ninth 30-point game of the season. He had just three such games in his first two seasons.
3 Broadway Debut
Lonzo Ball will make his first career start at The World’s Most Famous Arena tonight.
The much-hyped rookie is averaging 8.6 points, 7.1 assists and 6.8 rebounds.
4 THe Other Guy
While Lonzo Ball gets all the headlines, their other first round pick Kyle Kuzma is quietly making a name for himself.
The rookie from Utah has double-doubles in three of the team’s past four games and is averaging 16.0 points and 6.7 rebounds.
5 Stat Back
Former Knicks Amar’e Stoudemire will return to The Garden for the first time since retiring tonight.
Stoudemire signed a one-day contract to retire as a Knick in 2016 and as part of The Garden’s first Hanukkah Night, he will light a ceremonial menorah before the game.
