I'm not running to the window to lay chalk with the Utah Jazz who are banged up and in a full slump, but I'm not looking to side with the Knicks against respectable clubs regardless of the line. The Knicks aren't a good basketball team, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 5.6 points. The Jazz aren't winning, and they're terrible against the number at home, but they can catch fire from time to time, and they're still the better team than the Knicks. It's chalk or pass for me.
