Los Angeles Lakers vs New York Knicks recap and highlights

Kristaps Porzingis Great At Basketball Bad at Math

The New York Knicks (13-13) face the Los Angeles Lakers (10-15) on Tuesday at 7:00 PM ET. In an OT game that came down to the wire, a sequence in the third quarter was perhaps indicative of the kind of contest it was in Madison Square Garden. Brandon Ingram scored at the 1:05 mark but the deficit was too much to overcome in overtime and NY secured the 113-109 victory.

Porzingis averages 18 points while shooting 41.7% from downtown against the Lakers, and his 10.7 rebounds a night is the highest split of his career.

Knicks reserve Michael Beasley scored six points in overtime. There aren't a lot of 20 (point), five (rebound), five (assist) guys out there.

Points in the paint - The Lakers score the most points in the paint in the league this season, scoring 54.5 points in there per game. The 7-foot-3 forward became the first player in National Basketball Association history to record at least 35 points, 10 rebounds, five blocks and five made 3-pointers in a single game. Los Angeles rookies Lonzo Ball (17 points, eight rebounds, six assists) and Kyle Kuzma (19 points) played well in their Madison Square Garden debuts.

Lakers president and Hall of Famer Magic Johnson, Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and former Knicks Amar'e Stoudemire were among the stars sitting courtside.

He made two 3-pointers.

Rookie Frank Ntilikina went the whole fourth quarter and overtime in a strong defensive effort that helped slow down Ball after his third-quarter flurry. But Lonzo couldn't lift the Lakers.

Despite his own success, Beasley signaled out Ball for his play after the game. His tip in gave the Knicks a 105-103 lead with 2:33 remaining. The Knicks went ahead 109-103 after a Beasley driving layup with 1:29 to go. Ingram finished with five points on 2-for-12 shooting. Four other Knicks in addition to Porzingis and Beasley scored in double-figures. The Knicks have only played in games totalling over this number once in their last seven outings, and expect this trend to continue in this one.

"It was just transition", said Kuzma, who scored 10 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter. Then Porzingis missed inside.

Kuzma sank a three-pointer in front of the Knicks bench to tie the game at 99 with 23.9 seconds left in regulation.

Kristaps Porzingis is the top fantasy basketball player for the Knicks with a season average of 40.57 fantasy points per game.

There was a different buzz at the Garden for a game against an opponent that didn't have a superstar on its roster. He's a better rebounder and far better passer than he is a scorer. "Could've kept the lead in that second quarter and got back in the game, but it happens". By halftime their lead was down to one point, and the Knicks led for much of the second half.

However, Kyle Kuzma made it tough for Porzingis to catch the ball, and a timely double-team from Kentavious Caldwell-Pope resulted in a miss from the big man. Clarkson added 12 points with six rebounds and three assists in only 20 minutes. They will hope they can continue this turnaround in their road form, but the Knicks are a daunting prospect at home.
