Bobcats host Knicks

(Sports Network) – Two of the worst teams in the NBA square off tonight as
the New York Knicks visit the Charlotte Bobcats in North Carolina.

The Knicks will conclude a three-game road trip after posting wins in the
first two contests. New York defeated the Bucks in Milwaukee last week, then
handed the Pacers a 107-92 setback on Tuesday.

Jamal Crawford scored all 16 of his points during the fourth stanza, as the
Knicks topped Indiana at Conseco Fieldhouse. Jalen Rose tallied a game-high 21
points in New York’s second consecutive victory after a six-game slide.

New York is 2-12 in its last 14 road games and 6-25 away from Madison Square
Garden this season.

Charlotte, meanwhile, ended a two-game losing streak with Wednesday’s 104-101
victory over the Golden State Warriors.

Gerald Wallace added a dunk with seven seconds remaining in the game to lift
the Bobcats to a 104-101 home win over Golden State. Wallace finished with 17
points, seven rebounds, five steals and four assists for Charlotte, which
snapped a four-game home losing streak.

The Bobcats are 11-19 at home this season.

Saturday’s contest between the Knicks and Bobcats is the second of three
matchups this season.

Charlotte posted a 108-95 victory over the Knicks, as Wallace netted a game-
high 24 points and Kareem Rush added 22 points. After Saturday’s game in
Charlotte, the Knicks will host the Bobcats at MSG on April 17.
