(NEW YORK) Welcome, fellow New Yorkers! This is another Monday edition of the New York City Daily Roundup, the best way to catch the latest news from across the boroughs. Today is Monday, Jan. 24 and after a busy weekend, there's plenty of news to catch up on!

Temperatures will rise to 33°F on Monday, with a low of 26°F expected after the 5:03 p.m. sunset. No rain or snow is expected throughout the workweek, but snow may appear in the city come Saturday.

As for the news, here's what you need to know this Monday:

1.) Knicks beat Clippers for 23rd win of the season

The New York Knicks handed the Los Angeles Clippers their 25th loss of the season — 13th on the road — Sunday after a 110-102 victory at Madison Square Garden. Knicks guard RJ Barrett recorded a double-double in the win with a game-high 28 points and 14 rebounds.

"I am hungry for more. I want more for the team, but for myself as well," Barrett said. "I think that if I continue to be aggressive like I've been the past couple of games, like I was tonight, I think probably anything is possible. I want to continue to be able to make plays like I did today, score and defend and rebound, really do it all out there on the court for the team and kind of be the guy that does whatever the team needs."

The Knicks return to action on Monday, this time on the road, as they head to Cleveland for a 7 p.m. tip-off.

2.) James Snyder fired from 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child'

After receiving a complaint from a co-star about his behavior at work, James Synder was fired from Broadway's 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.' Snyder, who played Harry Potter in the stage play, received a complaint from a female coworker back in November, which led to a suspension and independent investigation.

“We are committed to fostering a safe and inclusive workplace, which is why we have robust workplace policies and procedures in place for all those involved in ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,’” the statement by producers said.

“This includes strict prohibitions against harassment in any form, as well as channels through which any employee can report conduct that they believe is inappropriate. We will continue to do all we can to ensure the extremely talented team that brings this production to life feels safe, empowered, and fully supported," the producers said.

3.) MTA to hold a meeting regarding safety and rise in crime

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority will hold a meeting on Monday to discuss a number of topics including safety as assault numbers rise, according to ABC 7 NY.

The subway system saw 461 felony assaults in 2021 — the most since 1997, per ABC 7.
