NBA Game Rankings: 12/23/10

Well the New York Knicks finally got the home win they were looking for last night, as they defeated the Thunder at MSG to snap their three-game losing streak. The Knicks looked pretty good defensively for the first time in a while, and that’s obviously what will fuel them if they are to make a deep run in the playoffs. They are still clearly a few steps behind the top teams in the East, but if they can play solid defense on a consistent basis, it will at least give them a chance in a playoff series against better teams.

Here’s a look at tonight’s games:

#3: Milwaukee Bucks (11-16) at Sacramento Kings (5-21) – 10:00 PM ET, Regional

#2: Miami Heat (21-9) at Phoenix Suns (13-14) – 10:30 PM ET, TNT

#1: San Antonio Spurs (25-3) at Orlando Magic (16-12) – 8:00 PM ET, TNT

Who ya got tonight? Spurs or Magic
