La Lakers - NYK (Assists)
The Los Angeles Lakers play host to the New York Knicks at Staples Center on Friday. Knicks are very bad lately and they have 13 losses in last 14 matches. They are not good at scoring as they rank 22nd in scoring and their defense is not good also as they are ranked 27th in points allowed . Encouraging for them is that some players are playing very good like Luke Kornet, Kevin Knox and Emmanuel Mudiay. Their rookie Kevin Knox has been named rookie of the month and he is playing much better lately.
Lakers are without Rajon Rondo and LeBron James and that means that some of the young stars like INgram, Ball, Josh Hart and Kuzma need to step up their game. Kuzma is also questionable for this game due to back injury and Brandon Ingram will play big minutes. In absence of Rondo and James Ingram have some playmaking responsibilites. That is shown in last two games as he had 5 and nine assists.
