The Lakers were hoping that Pau Gasol will be able to return to the lineup on Thursday following his bout with knee tendinitis. He has been ruled out for Thursday’s game. LA is 1-4 straight up without Gasol in the lineup for the Lakers. LA has lost three straight and four of their past five games. They come off the bad 100-94 road defeat on Tuesday night to the Cleveland Cavaliers as a -6 ½ point favorite. The Lakers defense continued to perform poorly as they allow a bad Cleveland team tally up 100 points. On the road this season the Lakers are giving up 103 points a game. The Knicks are playing good basketball as the team hosts the Lakers with a two game winning streak and seven wins over their past eight games. On Tuesday the Knicks were on the road to Brooklyn and found themselves down 30-16 after one period of play. The Knicks rally and behind a late clutch four point play by Jason Kidd and 45 points from Carmelo Anthony the team earns the difficult 100-97 win. Offensively the Knicks have played very well averaging over 102 points a game ranking 5th in the NBA and hit 41% from the three point line which is third best in basketball. The big reason for the major turnaround by the Knicks has been the play of their defense as the club allows just 95 points a game.
