Game 1 of the doubleheader will air on TNT as the Toronto Raptors are home to the New York Knicks. This is the second meeting of the season between the Raptors and Knicks. They went head to head on December 10th with New York posting the 111-109 road victory and cover as a +7 ½ point underdog. The difference was at the three point line where the Knicks converted 11 of 23 from beyond the arc and Toronto was a poor 4 of 17 from three point range. Carmelo Anthony had 25 points with the Knicks bench with good contributions in the scoring department. DeMar DeRozan had 29 points for Toronto in the loss. The Knicks are 22-25 and look to rebound from a three game losing streak as the team was defeated at home in overtime to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday 128-122. Toronto is making a serious case for being a major contender to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern conference. The team is 30-15 on the campaign and will carry a nine game win streak into this matchup after a 106-89 victory at home to the Washington Wizards on Tuesday as a -8 point favorite.

The late night game gets going at 10:30PM Eastern Time on TNT as the LA Lakers will welcome the Chicago Bulls. It has been a terrible season for the Lakers as the club enters play with a mark of 9-38. They carry a seven game losing streak after a 92-90 home defeat to the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night. They have failed to score 100 points in eight of their past nine games. The Lakers are the worst field goal and three point shooting team in the NBA as they make 41.3% from the field and 30.9% from beyond the arc. The Bulls are 25-19 and look to rebound after dropping an 89-84 home decision to the Miami Heat. They have struggled for offense of late by losing seven of their past ten games.
