The New York Knicks and the New Orleans Pelicans collide at the Smoothie King Center on Saturday night.

The New York Knicks have hit the ground running this season as they’ve won four of their first five games and they will be looking to build on a two-game win streak after outlasting the red-hot Bulls in a 104-103 road win on Thursday. Kemba Walker led the team with 21 points on seven of 12 shooting, RJ Barrett added 20 points, Derrick Rose scored 12 points off the bench while Julius Randle tallied 13 points with 16 rebounds and nine assists. As a team, the Knicks shot 45 percent from the field and 11 of 29 from the 3-point line as they worked hard to lead by as many as 13 points with just 2:14 left on the clock, before escaping with the narrow win as the Bulls’ DeMar DeRozan missed on the potential game winner at the buzzer.

Meanwhile, the New Orleans Pelicans have really struggled so far as they’ve lost five of their first six games and they will be hoping to bounce back after last night’s 113-109 home loss to the Kings. Jonas Valanciunas led the team with 24 points, 13 rebounds and two blocks, Brandon Ingram added 22 points with six assists while Devonte’ Graham chipped in with 16 points. As a team, the Pelicans shot just 42 percent from the field and nine of 34 from the 3-point line as they worked hard to erase an 11-point halftime deficit, before having their momentum snuffed on a flagrant-1 foul call on a 3-point attempt with the scores tied in the fourth quarter.

Head to head, the over is 5-1 in the last six meetings overall, the Knicks are 9-3 ATS in the last 12 meetings in New Orleans and the Knicks are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings overall.

The Knicks have emerged as one of the form teams in the league and their confidence will be sky-high after taking down the Bulls in a statement road win on Thursday. The Pelicans have struggled with injuries and it’s going to be tough to defend home court on zero days’ rest against a red-hot Bulls team. The Knicks are 9-3 ATS in the last 12 meetings in New Orleans and I think that trend continues here as the Knicks get the win and cover.
