Hornets vs. Knicks ResultsA bit of experience from the New York Knicks come in handy for the young New Orleans Hornets, even for a game. A game is what they need. More specifically a victory, to get back in the winning track that the Knicks have handled smoothly so far in the NBA betting season.

On Tuesday night New Orleans will have the perfect opportunity for Anthony Davis and the Hornets promising note. Not that the Knicks have a doctorate in the field - still have much, much to prove - but their excellent 7-1 start puts them in perfect position to serve as tutor to his young opponent.

While New Orleans comes with a three-game losing streak, the quintet of the Big Apple's look at the fourth stop (3-1) in a stretch of eight of 10 games away from home to test the troops of Mike Woodson. The game is also the first of six in nine nights-five on the road-for a team that depends on canasteros veterans and nail to defend every inch of tabloncillo claws.

And although its shortcomings debajos boards (40 rpg) is a concern, when the aim without fail, the headlines in New York have not had much to complain about. The experiment of Carmelo Anthony (23.6 ppg) playing as 'power forward' pays off, as it achieved a full camp to absorb philosophy Woodson as defensive cornerstone in the success of the quintet..


(Confess that intrigues me the matching between the former teammates and Anthony Davis Olympic times that are facing each other. Good test for the first pick)

That weapon skill as the Knicks advantage is something the Hornets lack, his youth is both his Achilles heel in this and his trump card in the future. With Davis (16.0 ppg, 8.3 rpg, 2.2 TPJ) as foundation and also developing talented pieces around, New Orleans is well positioned to compete in the long run always seasoned West.

However, for now, coach Monty Williams and his troops have to pass the bitter, including the absence of someone who was supposed to pay the offensive responsabiliadades leading goalscorer. Suffice it to say we still have to see the outcome of the saga of Eric Gordon, his knees and his $ 58 million.

Without Gordon, the Hornets have had offensive problems (93.1 ppg) navigating the murky waters of the NBA, despite solid contributions baseman Greivis Vasquez (11.8 ppg, 8.9 apg) and forward Ryan Anderson ( 16.4, ppg, 8.0 rpg).

At the same time, his defense enters the game against the Knicks defensive now having allowed 100, 110 and 117 points the past three games, coinciding with the losing streak. Davis himself, barely 19 years old, will improve with time on that side of the court with experience as your body develops implementing.

New Orleans, like any typical young team has had ups and downs, is expected. Like his future superstar, the Hornets have room to grow and become a serious contender, delighting in the present with developing talent.

For them, this is a lesson to learn. For the Knicks, this is an opportunity not to be wasted, and the superstar has no time to lose. Class in session.
