The New York Knicks rode their defense to an ugly win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday, taking themselves to 6-3 on the season. They have now won four straight games, and they will likely be confident of winning a fifth on Thursday night against the Memphis Grizzlies, who have been slightly disappointing in the early going.
Memphis lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday, their third straight loss. They will have the benefit of a day off that the Knicks did not have, but their offense looks poor at the moment. The Grizzlies have failed to score 100 points in their last four straight games, while New York has allowed less than 90 points in all of their last three.
Game Date/Time: Thursday, Jan. 12, 8:00 p.m. ET
Venue: FedExForum, Memphis, Tennessee
