Tim Hardaway Jr. continued his road to recovery Thursday, as the Knicks’ guard practiced with the team.
The 25-year-old hasn’t played since Nov. 29 and the Knicks would love nothing more than to have another dynamic offensive player on the floor.
Two of the NBA’s top young stars will take the floor against the each other, as Kristaps Porzingis meets fellow 2015 NBA Draftee Karl-Anthony Towns tonight.
In four career matchups against Porzingis, Towns is averaging 29 points per game and 11.3 rebounds compared to KP’s 14.3 points per game and 5.3 rebounds.
But Porzingis has enjoyed the better of it in terms of the win-loss record. In four matchups against the Timberwolves, Porzingis’ Knicks are undefeated.
He finished the night with 16 points, 10 rebounds and 10 rebounds. Jack is averaging 11.2 points per game and 6.2 assists in his last five games.
After not attempting a free throw Wednesday, Courtney Lee still remains two free throws short of breaking the Knicks all-time consecutive free throws record.
Lee has made 43 straight free throws, tied for second all-time with Danilo Gallinari, while Chris Duhon holds the record with 44 consecutive.
