New York Knicks (15-22)
Charlotte Bobcats (15-23)
The New York Knicks are quietly beginning to put things together. New York has won a season-high five straight games and sits in the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference playoff standings. The Charlotte Bobcats are heading in the opposite direction. Charlotte has lost eight of their last nine games following back-to-back losses in Chicago and Minnesota.
Charlotte will look to get their defense back on track Tuesday. The Bobcats are allowing over 111 points in five January games. In their first 20 games, the Bobcats allowed 100 points or more three times. Since then, they’ve allowed 100 or more 10 times.
