Where to watch the Knicks vs Spurs game?
The Spurs have lost six of their previous seven games, the most recent being a heartbreaking OT loss to Brooklyn. They won’t have much time to think about it, which might work to their benefit as they return to New York for their second game in as many nights against the Knicks. Each NBA franchise has its own unique perspective.
You can watch the game on the NBA App if you have an NBA League Pass membership, and it will also be aired nationally on TNT. Let’s go over the latest team news and our Dream11 picks for the San Antonio Spurs vs. New York Knicks matchup.
Team news and Injuries
The COVID list for San Antonio is still strong, and it looks that the team will have to go with the reduced bunch against the Knicks. Forwards Keldon Johnson and Thaddeus Young, as well as guards Derick White, Devin Vassell, and Tre Jones, are all on the list. Forward Doug McDermott will be a game-time decision, while Zach Collins (ankle) will be out until February.
With Evan Fournier (thigh) out of the game and uncertain for San Antonio, the Knicks are also short on capable bodies. Derrick Rose (ankle) and Kemba Walker (knee) are two more regulars who will miss Monday’s game (knee). Nerlens Noel, a big guy, is coming off a COVID stint and will most likely be sidelined while working on fitness.
Knicks vs Spurs Preview
The Spurs gave the Brooklyn Nets all they could handle on Sunday, but were unable to win, falling 121-119 in overtime. Despite covering a large 10-point margin in the fourth quarter and failing to acquire a viable chance at the conclusion of regulation or overtime, the Spurs were unable to take the game despite overcoming a 10-point deficit. All five starters scored in double digits, with Lonnie Walker IV leading the way with 25 points on 9-of-20 shooting, four assists, and three rebounds.
Following a high of a win against the Celtics at MSG on Friday night, the Knicks were thrashed 99-75 in the second leg of the home-and-home series in Boston. It was a poor showing all around, but especially from the backup squad, which played 62 minutes and shot 2-for-12 for six points. The starters didn’t fare much better, with any of them scoring more than 20 points and just Mitchell Robinson hitting 50 percent of his shots.
