Lakers Vs. Knicks: TV Time, Schedule And More

Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers will get their first taste of Linsanity as they visit Jeremy Lin and the New York Knicks in a game that will be the first of two televised games on ESPN's Friday night schedule.

The Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks have been one of the premier match-ups in NBA history Despite both teams lacking a bit of their usual luster this season, however, plenty of eyes will be tuning in when they meet on Friday night.

Kobe Bryant and the Lakers will match-up with ... Jeremy Lin and the Knicks as Carmelo Anthony continues to sit with a groin injury while Amare Stoudemire remains at home as he continues to grieve over the death of his brother. As mentioned earlier, it might not exactly be the star-studded event it's been in the past.

It's still Lakers-Knicks, though, and the Linsanity that's sweeping the nation might even make up for the lack of 'Melo, Stoudemire and the Lakers being a disappointing fifthin the current Western Conference standings. It doesn't hurt that the game will be televised nationally at 8 p.m. ET as the first of two games on ESPN's Friday night doubleheader.
