Lakers-Knicks Preview

(AP) -- While the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers are two of the winningest franchises in NBA history, they find themselves at or near the bottom of their respective conferences heading into Sunday's matchup at Madison Square Garden.

This marks the teams' first meeting since Phil Jackson signed on to become New York's team president back in March. Jackson coached the Lakers to five of his NBA-record 11 titles during his 11 seasons in Los Angeles from 1999-2011. This game also serves as a reunion for Knicks coach and former Lakers guard Derek Fisher, who played a part in each of those five championships under Jackson.

New York has struggled in the series over the years, dropping 22 of the last 31 meetings. However, Carmelo Anthony scored a combined 64 points as the Knicks and Lakers split two matchups last season, with each team winning at home.
