If you’re a fan of the NBA, then you probably know that there are two basketball teams in the league’s biggest market. The New York Knicks vs the Los Angeles Clippers have been rivals since they were both founded in the early 1960s, but they’ve recently been battling each other even more than usual as they compete in their division and conference to try to claim supremacy over the rest of the league’s franchises.
The New York Knicks and the Los Angeles Clippers are two of the NBA’s most storied franchises. The rivalry between the two teams dates back to 1972 when they first played each other in the Western Division Semifinals. They have met eight times in the NBA Playoffs, but only twice since 1994 (2007 and 2013). The series is split 4-4 with one tie game. Of their eight playoff matchups, three were won by just a single point while four went into overtime. There have been no blowout victories in any of these playoff matchups. These two teams are so evenly matched that it’s hard to predict what will happen when they meet on Feb 5th at Madison Square Garden
The New York Knickerbockers were one of the original members of the National Basketball Association, founded in 1946. They have won two NBA titles and six division championships. The team has been home to some of the most well-known players in basketball history, such as Patrick Ewing, Walt Frazier, Phil Jackson, and Willis Reed.
The Los Angeles Clippers are a newer franchise that began playing in 1970. They joined the NBA as an expansion team and became one of four teams to enter the league at that time. They have not won any NBA titles but they have made it to the playoffs 12 times and reached their first conference finals in 2006 when they lost to Phoenix Suns 4-2.
