The Toronto Raptors and New York Knicks meet Sunday in NBA action at Madison Square Garden.
The Toronto Raptors look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Toronto Raptors are averaging 111.9 points on 44.6 percent shooting and allowing 111.8 points on 45.9 percent shooting. Pascal Siakam is averaging 20.7 points and 4.5 assists while Fred VanVleet is averaging 19.8 points and 4.2 rebounds. Kyle Lowry is the third double-digit scorer and Gary Trent Jr. is grabbing three rebounds. The Toronto Raptors are shooting 36.8 percent from beyond the arc and 82.5 percent from the free throw line. The Toronto Raptors are allowing 37.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 41.3 rebounds per game.
The New York Knicks need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The New York Knicks are averaging 105.4 points on 45.1 percent shooting and allowing 104.5 points on 44.2 percent shooting. Julius Randle is averaging 22.8 points and 6.1 assists while RJ Barrett is averaging 17.6 points and 5.9 rebounds. Alec Burks is the third double-digit scorer and Derrick Rose is dishing 3.9 assists. The New York Knicks are shooting 38.1 percent from beyond the arc and 76.9 percent from the free throw line. The New York Knicks are allowing 33.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.6 rebounds per game.
The Raptors are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 road games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Knicks are 10-3-2 ATS in their last 15 Sunday games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 13-6 in Raptors last 19 road games. The under is 9-4 in Knicks last 13 overall. The Raptors are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Toronto Raptors have yet they're capable of stringing together wins and I doubt that changes on the end of a back to back. The New York Knicks have had issues winning recently, but they have the rest advantage here and they're winning their last five games by an average of 6.2 points. The Knicks are also 13-6 against the spread this season in the favorite role. This line is a bit disrespectful to the Knicks if we're being honest. Give me the home team.
