New York Knicks vs. San Antonio Spurs: Watch Live TV Stream Online For Free; Preview

By Jason Van Hoven, Posted: 11/15/12 04:00PM EST

The New York Knicks are visiting the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday. The game will be broadcast live on TNT and MSG at 8:30 p.m. ET and can be seen via live TV stream online for free here.

Including playoffs, the Spurs have won 22 of 24 in San Antonio and have won 18 out of their last 19 non-playoff contests. The Knicks are trying to go 6-0 and end a nine-game losing streak in San Antonio.

The Knicks opened up a three-game road trip with a 99-89 victory over the Orlando Magic on Tuesday night, improving to 5-0 for the first time since opening the 1993-94 season with seven consecutive wins en route to an NBA finals appearance. They also once again won by double digits, holding the Magic to a mere 13 points in the fourth quarter after taking a one-point lead into the period.

It's that solid play on defense that many attribute to having carried the Knicks to such success. However, New York's success can be attributed to its stellar play on both ends of the court, as it ranks second in the league with 103.4 points per game and first in the league in points allowed at 87.8.

Point guard Raymond Felton had 21 points against the Magic and sixth man J.R. Smith, the early favorite for the Sixth Man of the Year award, scored 21 of his own on 9-of-14 shooting. Smith, who is also 13-for-18 from three-point range, is second on the Knicks with a career-best average of 18.2 points, trailing Carmelo Anthony's 26.8 per game.

It's Anthony, not Smith, though, who will be the player to watch as he will most likely match up at the power forward against Tim Duncan. Duncan is playing like he's in his heyday, leading the team in points (18.8), rebounds (9.6) and blocks (2.8) per game.

Duncan, as a result, has been an integral part in why San Antonio is also, like the Knicks, one of the better defensive teams in the NBA. The Spurs hold opponents to 92.6 points per game, good for ninth in the league.

The Spurs will be the Knicks' first opponent out of seven away from home. New York hasn't really had much success against them in the last decade, having averaged just 88.6 points since a 105-97 win on March 18, 2003.

The Spurs concluded a 3-1 road trip on Tuesday night with an 84-82 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers as Danny Green hit the go-ahead three-pointer with 9.3 seconds left. Tony Parker scored a team-high 19 points while shooting 8-for-18.
