Knicks get much-needed win to avoid a winless west coast trip

After two straight losses to start the four-game West coast road trip, the New York Knicks got a nice win against the Los Angeles Lakers. The win moved the Knicks to 40-30 and tied them with the Brooklyn Nets for the Eastern Conference’s fifth seed.

The win ensured New York won at least one game on their road trip. With losses to the Sacramento Kings and Los Angeles Clippers, falling to the Lakers would have put the Knicks at 0-3, with their last chance coming against the Portland Trail Blazers.
