It’s time to hit the road.
The Trail Blazers (14-20) are set to embark on a five-game, 10-day trip, tipping off in New York City on New Year’s Day.
The Knicks (9-24) are currently riding a two-game winning streak following their seven-point victory over the Wizards Saturday night.
Now after having three days off, the Knicks welcome in the Blazers.
Portland knows how important it is to get the job done on the road especially since the Blazers have dropped four straight.
Trail Blazers veteran Carmelo Anthony explained how being on the road could be a good thing for the Blazers:
“This is where we we’ll come together as a group, as a team, and we’ll figure it out on this road trip… These injuries that we have you can’t control that, but we have guys on this team that know how to play, a lot of experience, know this type of situations, have been in these situations before whether here or somewhere else… Like I said I think this road trip will really bring us together. Going on the road, sometimes you need to get away from home… Because it’s all about us on the road.”

“I thought we played well for most of it. I think we had some lapses offensively, and defensively where we left guys wide open, we didn’t get rebounds, gave up second chance opportunities or when we scored they came back down the next play. So, there’s some great things we did tonight and some things we did pretty poorly." – CJ McCollum after Monday’s loss to the Suns
