1 End of the Road

Tonight marks the end of New York’s season-long, seven game road trip.

After the starting the trip 2-1, the Knicks have lost their last three. They get three days of rest after tonight before hosting the rival Nets Tuesday.

2 Going Back-to-Back

After falling Thursday in Denver, tonight’s test against the Suns will mark the backend of the Knicks 10th of 14 back-to-backs this season.

So far, New York is 3-6 on the backends of back-to-backs.

3 The Last Time They Met ...

Kristaps Porzingis is taking his game to a whole new level, becoming the focal point for the Knicks and putting the NBA on notice.

The Knicks will be looking to sweep the season series after a dominant 120-107 victory at The Garden earlier this season.

Kristaps Porzingis will look to replicate his electrifying performance, when he tallied 37 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 blocks.

4 Time For Revenge

Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek returns to Phoenix, where he played six seasons (1986-92) and coached for three (2013-16) before being fired midway through the 2015-16 season.

A win tonight would be extra special for Hornacek, especially after losing an overtime heartbreaker last year in Phoniex. 

5 All-Star Snub

Suns guard Devin Booker was left off the All-Star team this week, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t playing like one. 

The third-year pro from Kentucky is ninth in the NBA in scoring (24.8 ppg) and has scored 34 and 26 points in his last two games against the Knicks, who will need all hands on deck to slow him down.
