Transcript: With your New York Sports Minute, I’m Samara Rosenfeld.
The Nets survived a 104-102 thriller in Los Angeles against the Lakers, backed by a team-high 23 points for Spencer Dinwiddie. Brooklyn has now won three-straight and four of its last five games and will look to stay hot tomorrow night against the Warriors.
The Knicks dropped the first game of a back-to-back after falling to the Wizards 122-115. Frank Ntilikina recorded a double-double with 20 points and 10 assists, while Bobby Portis added 20 points of his own in the loss. The team will look to bounce back tonight against Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks.
From the hardwood to the ice, the Rangers defeated the Dallas Stars 4-2 after Kaapo Kakko netted two goals. The Islanders did not have as much fortune, as its loss streak was extended to seven games after a 5-4 shootout defeat by the Canucks.
In spring training news, the Mets won 7-4 over the Astros, while the Yankees lost 4-2 to the Blue Jays. But both New York baseball teams received bad news, after Michael Conforto of the Mets was diagnosed with a right oblique strain and Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez tested positive for the flu. Both players’ timelines remain unclear.
Well, that’s all for today. Once again, I'm Samara Rosenfeld, and that was your New York Sports Minute.
