Dejounte Murray is averaging 18.2 points and 8.3 rebounds, while Keldon Johnson is averaging 14.7 points and 1.7 assists.

The Spurs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Knicks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 13-5 ATS in their last 18 Monday games. The under is 14-6-2 in Spurs last 22 road games. The under is 6-2 in Knicks last 8 overall. The under is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in New York.
The San Antonio Spurs look like a team that's falling apart, and I'm not sure playing on the end of a back to back helps therm here. However, let's not act like the Knicks are playing impressive ball in their own right. The Knicks are losing their last five games by an average of 8.2 points, and they're losing at home by an average of 2.1 points. The Knicks are 8-12 against the spread at home this season. Don't love the game overall, but it's Spurs or pass for me.
