New York Knicks vs Charlotte Hornets Preview
The New York Knicks have a very successful season. They had ups and downs in the first half of the season, but Thomas Thibodeau's team significantly improved their game in the second half of the season, and they only need one victory to secure the top 6 in the East. The New York Knicks have won 11 of the previous 15 games but have suffered a drop in form lately, where they have lost 3 of the previous 4 games, so the team is certainly eager to return to winning ways.
On the other hand, the Charlotte Hornets have also managed to secure a playoff this season, but their negative record of 33-36 does not promise to provide good games in the playoffs. The Hornets are safe because they have 4 victories over the Chicago Bulls in 3 rounds until the regular season. However, James Borrego's team has not looked good lately, as they have suffered 6 defeats in the previous 9 games.
