There is a big storm headed for the New York area, which is expected to lead to flight delays and cancellations Thursday.

Many players aren’t flying back with the team and are staying overnight before heading to their chosen destinations for the All-Star break.

It’s just another thing for the Kings, who looked out of it Tuesday in Cleveland, to have on their minds when they face the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.

What should be a bigger concern before that is the offense. The Kings are shooting 38.7 percent in the first three games of the trip and scoring just 90.7 points per game.

Turnovers, poor ball movement and poor decisions have haunted the Kings on offense.

Prediction time: Figuring out this Kings team is beyond me, based on this trip. All signs point to a lopsided win for the Knicks.

Sacramento is playing it’s third game in four nights and isn’t playing well. Their competitive spirt was questioned by coach Michael Malone.

The Knicks have been off since losing at Oklahoma City on Sunday.

Knicks 104, Kings 93

My record: 30-22
