Anthony Davis

Lakers superstar Anthony Davis had nothing but good words to say about the New York Knicks ahead of Tuesday’s game.

Davis is expecting a fun matchup against a Knicks team that is ‘playing really well’ and is ‘hard-playing’.

“They’re playing really well. They’re a hard-playing team. They’re rolling and we got to get that game, too. So it’s going to be a fun matchup for us,” Davis said, via Ryan Ward of Lakers Nation.

Davis and the Lakers are seventh in the West, with a 38-30 record, and are fighting to avoid the play-in tournament. They currently are one win behind the sixth-seeded Blazers, who are at 39-29.

On the other hand, the Knicks are fourth in the East (38-30) and one step away from clinching their spot in the playoffs.
