The Charlotte Hornets and the New York Knicks will both be trying to pick up a win on Friday when they battle at Madison Square Garden.

ABOUT THE HORNETS (23-23): Charlotte coach Steve Clifford wasn’t interested in the notion that hanging with the Warriors late was any sort of moral victory. “It’s not OK,” Clifford told reporters. “We have to get past the point (where trying hard is enough). We’re good now. We’re not the Hornets of five years ago. I love our fans, (but) everybody saying, ‘Great effort!’ that’s not OK. If we run back on defense and don’t turn the ball over, that’s a great win.” The Hornets had six players score in double figures in the loss but committed 15 turnovers, leading to 21 points, and were outscored 28-4 on the fast break.

ABOUT THE KNICKS (20-27): Anthony scored 30 or more points in four of the last six games and went 13-of-24 from the floor at Dallas on Wednesday, but New York still fell 103-95. The 32-year-old’s five-year, $124 million contract runs through the 2018-19 campaign, and the Knicks appeared earlier in the season to be building a winner around him before the team fell off the rails over the last six weeks. “It’s definitely frustrating because we have the talent,” reserve point guard Brandon Jennings told reporters. “We were 14-10. Now we’re fighting to try to even not be last in the East.”

Oddsmakers currently have the Hornets listed as pk-point favorites versus the Knicks, while the game’s total is sitting at 212.5.

In their last action, New York was a 103-95 loser on the road against the Mavericks. They failed to cover the +2.5-point spread as underdogs, while the combined score (198) was profitable news for UNDER bettors.

The Hornets were a 113-103 loser in their most recent outing at home against the Warriors. They failed to cover the +9.5-point spread as underdogs, while the total score (216) made winners of UNDER bettors.

The New York Knicks are apparently intent on getting star forward Carmelo Anthony out of town, though he seems to be the least of their problems at the moment. The Knicks will try to fight off the trade rumors and earn a fifth win in the last 19 games when they host the Charlotte Hornets on Friday.

Anthony, who is one of just three players in the NBA with a no-trade clause in his contract, has repeatedly said that he is committed to winning in New York, but that hasn’t stopped team president Phil Jackson from taking swipes at his star in the press or trying to move him, with the latest rumor an Anthony-for-Kevin Love swap that did not interest the Cleveland Cavaliers. “I really don’t have a reaction to it,” Anthony told reporters. “Until management comes to me and says something, then it’s not something to look forward to or feed into it at this point. I really don’t have a reaction to it.” The Hornets are riding a bit of a roller coaster of late, following five straight losses with three consecutive wins before dropping their last two. Charlotte carried a lead into the fourth quarter at home against the NBA-best Golden State Warriors on Wednesday before surrendering 38 points in the final frame and falling 113-103.
