Friday's TV Schedule Features Lakers/Knicks On ESPN & Clippers Trying To Extend Cavaliers' Streak

Today's television schedule involves two streaks that the local teams would like to extend. The Los Angeles Lakers head to Madison Square Garden to face the New York Knicks on ESPN, one night after getting their biggest win of the season, 92-86 in Boston over the Celtics. Meanwhile, the Clippers are in Cleveland, trying to become the 27th straight team to defeat the Cavaliers. Here is tonight's full TV schedule:


4:30 p.m. - Clippers (20-32) at Cavaliers (8-45); Prime Ticket: The Cavs not only have lost 26 straight games, but had a 10-game losing streak before their last win too, meaning they have lost 36 of 37 games. The Clippers are coming off a big win over the Knicks on Wednesday, and will look to avoid becoming that team, the team that ends Cleveland's streak. If the Cavs lose, it sets up a Sunday matchup featuring a team with 27 straight losses facing a team in Washington with a 26-game road losing streak.


5 p.m. - Lakers (37-16) at Knicks (26-25); ESPN, KCAL: The Lakers have beaten the Knicks seven straight times, including three in a row in New York. Los Angeles is 3-0 on its Grammy road trip, and with a win tonight will be 19-8 at both home and on the road. Kobe Bryant is two years removed from setting a Madison Square Garden scoring record, with 61 points in 2009.


6 p.m. - Anaheim Ducks (30-21-4) at Calgary Flames (28-21-7); Fox Sports West: The Ducks have won 12 of their last 16 games, and battle Calgary in a tussle for playoff position in the Western Conference.
