Knicks, Jazz hope to stay on fringe of playoffs

SALT LAKE CITY -- Staying on the fringes of the playoff picture is becoming harder for both the New York Knicks and the Utah Jazz.

When the two teams clash in Salt Lake City on Friday night, both will be searching to build some critical momentum to reverse recent struggles. New York has dropped 11 of its last 14 games. Utah has lost 15 of its last 20 contests.

Frustrations came to a head for the Knicks (20-25) in a 105-99 loss to Memphis on Wednesday. The Grizzlies led by as many 18 points in the third quarter before New York rallied within a basket in the final minute.
