It cooled off real quick in New York today for the out-of-towners on stage for a matinee. Even a 26-point Big Government bailout wasn’t enough to crack the case in the Clips’ wire-to-wire loss.

Reggie Jackson was hobbling a little as he left his postgame interview. He got hit in the fourth defending a layup. He said he’s all right. Because of the early tip in NYC, the Clippers have plenty of time before facing Wizards on Tuesday. – 4:03 PM

Reggie Jackson got emotional reiterating how much he loves Nic Batum. Jackson calls Nico the best glue guy in the league for everything he does on the floor and in the locker room. Jackson, especially this season, has been as open as ever, especially about his love for this group – 4:01 PM

Reggie Jackson is getting emotional talking about how much he appreciates Nicolas Batum. Reggie is expressive but you don’t see him normally like this. Batum means that much to Jackson. His voice is wavering. – 3:57 PM

Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Reggie Jackson continues to rave about Nico Batum: “We have stars in this league, but nothing runs without an ecosystem allowing you to be great… Nico is great. There’s no bad days, you don’t have to worry about him… how he is with his kids, his wife… teammates. A pro.” – 3:56 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Reggie Jackson asked by a French reporter about Nico Batum being a glue guy. He reiterated that Batum, in his opinion, is the best in the league.

Reggie Jackson was good: 26 points, going 10-18 and 4-8 from deep. On zoom, he says: The Knicks, who score da season-high 66 first-half points “got comfortable … a start that gave them too much comfort and from there, it was a game of catchup and they imposed their will.” – 3:46 PM

New York outscored Clippers 39-31 in first quarter.
It was literally even from there, and New York benefitted from 43.6/34.1/66.7 shooting from Clippers to win 110-102.

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Clippers are likely going to run out of time here. New York leads 108-99 with 2:19 left to play.
Simply a possession battle game. New York got out to blistering start from 3, then rode rebounds (47-38) and takeaways (10-12, outscoring Clippers 20-10) from there. – 3:13 PM

The Clippers’ worst FT shooting game this season was a 56% night. They’re shooting 67.9% today. – 3:09 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
Barrett is reading the game so well right now. Attacking relentlessly. Just had a very good, open, spot-up look from the wing and turned it down for an even more open corner 3 from Fournier. – 3:08 PM

Clippers getting to the line in the second half, but they’re just 11 for 18 since the break. – 3:07 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Ivica Zubac has a double-double. The Clippers are 8-4 this season when he records one. – 3:06 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
RJ Barrett has been so aggressive attacking the rim. By my count, he’s taken 16 shots in the paint today. And by my guess, that’s got to be a single-game season high. – 3:05 PM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
It’s possible Taj Gibson has spent as much time on the hardwood as he has upright since checking in five minutes ago. – 3:04 PM

Clippers trailed 80-70 entering fourth quarter Friday night in Philadelphia.
Surely, New York saw that and knows it’s not over through three quarters, even with a 91-81 lead.

The Clippers’ second quarter went extremely against the grain for this team. In January, no team has been outscored more in second quarters than LAC (-7.9) and they’ve shot 40% there. Today, +3 and 52% shooting in the 2Q. – 2:25 PM

Reggie Jackson did work in terms of keeping Clippers in this, scoring 12 of his 14 points in second quarter.
But Clippers have played without the drought to this point. Interesting to see if they can make Barrett as uncomfortable in 2nd half as they made Randle in 2nd quarter. – 2:12 PM

Knicks 66, Clippers 61 | Half | That’s a season high for the the Knicks before halftime. Eighth-most for the Clippers before the break. – 2:09 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
All ten Knicks made a basket in that first half, led by RJ Barrett’s 17 on 5/10 FGs, allowing New York to take 66-61 halftime lead.
3-point shooting is almost even: 10/21 for Clippers, 11/21 for New York.
But Clippers wasted 59% FGs by getting outrebounded and losing turnovers. – 2:08 PM

New York 20, Clippers 13 with 6:56 left in 1st. – 1:20 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Since the second half of Wednesday’s Denver game, Reggie Jackson has seemingly played at a more deliberate pace (and control), probing the paint with his dribble. He’s set up Batum for a couple drive-and-kick threes. – 1:19 PM
New York Knicks @nyknicks
Hot start from deep.

Mitchell Robinson is so much bouncier than he was at the start of the season. Just a different player than he was in October. – 1:15 PM
Marc Berman @NYPost_Berman
Julius, RJ, Evan hit consecutive 3’s. Julius just dropped in a foul-line jumper and Knicks jump to 11-2 start – 1:15 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
The Clippers trail 11-2 but Ty Lue isn’t taking a quick timeout to settle them down, opting to allow his team to find a flow. – 1:14 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
34 seconds in – Randle turnover, Fournier drive swatted into seats. Good afternoon. – 1:12 PM

Just my opinion: the next person who gets booed at the Garden should take Pat Riley’s approach in 1995 (Riley’s first trip to MSG following his move from NYK to MIA): pic.twitter.com/NxQqho6K321:04 PM

From earlier: “You traded a 1st for (Cam) Reddish, so you kind of have to play him. But you also used a 1st on (Quentin) Grimes, whose played very well lately. And you used a No. 8 pick on Obi Toppin.”

📅 On this day in 2019, the @Houston Rockets James Harden scored a career-high 61 points and added 15 rebounds in a 114-110 win over the Knicks.
Harden is one of seven players in NBA history to record at least 60p/15r in a game. He and Michael Jordan are the only guards to do so. pic.twitter.com/b5P71LqFGK12:01 PM
