Portland Trail Blazers at New York Knicks: Game preview, time, TV channel, how to watch free live stream online ( News New York )

Perhaps the Portland Trail Blazers’ best chance to win on their current four-game road trip will come Friday at the New York Knicks.

The Blazers (10-8) lost their first two games this season at Milwaukee (12-5) and Cleveland (12-6). The Knicks (9-9) aren’t quite at the same level.

First, the Knicks in three-point shooting (31.6%), and 19th in offensive rating (112.1). So, in theory, the New York Blazers should be able to score around 110 points after dropping 117 per game in their last three losses. A big mistake could generate offense without Damian Lillard, who again injured his right calf.

Portland’s offense just isn’t clicking as the raw material persists. However, the Knicks ranked 22nd in defensive rating (114.4), giving the Blazers an opportunity to put together a big game on offense.

Regardless, the Blazers just needed a win after losing four straight games and five of their last six. Despite the downslide, Blazers coach Chauncey Billiups says the team is busy and focused.

“I thought our attitude was very good,” Billups told reporters in Cleveland. “Especially in the tough spot we’re in right now, the losing streak. For me these are the times when you learn the most about your guys. For example, when when you have a tough stretch. As opposed to when you are possessed. It’s always fun and easy when you win. Yes, this is when you learn your guys. I like where we are at. We are scratching. We are positive. Keep it with you.”
