New York Knicks

The New York Knicks have been in great form as they've won nine of their last 11 games overall and they will be gunning for a fourth straight win after blowing past the Raptors in a 126-100 home win on Saturday. Jalen Brunson led the team with 38 points and nine assists on 13 of 23 shooting, Julius Randle racked up a triple-double of 18 points with 16 rebounds and 10 assists, Precious Achiuwa added 18 points on nine of 10 shooting off the bench while Donte DiVincenzo chipped in with 17 points in just 20 minutes of action. As a team, the Knicks shot 54 percent from the field and 14 of 39 from the 3-point line as they led by just two points at halftime, before they dominated the second half by 67-43 to make it a complete blowout in the end. The Knicks will face the Nuggets after this game.

  • Jalen Brunson ranks 5th in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for 3P% (42.7%) this season.
  • Julius Randle ranks 4th amongst qualified Centers for points per game (24.1) this season.

Brooklyn Nets

Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Nets have been in a major slump as they've lost 10 of their last 12 games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back here after getting beaten by the red-hot Clippers in a 125-114 road loss on Sunday. Mikal Bridges led the team with 26 points, six rebounds and five assists, Cam Thomas added 20 points and six assists off the bench while Nic Claxton and Spencer Dinwiddie scored 16 points each. As a team, the Nets shot 48 percent from the field and 14 of 39 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in full control when they poured in 38 points in the third quarter to build an 18-point lead, only to let it go to waste in the fourth quarter where they got outscored by an incredible 41-15 to lose by double digits.

Knicks vs Nets Prediction

The Knicks are coming into this meeting as one of the hottest teams in the league right now as they've won nine of their last 11 and they looked great in their dominant win over the Raptors on Saturday. In contrast, the Nets are mired in their worst slump of the season and they might still be scratching their heads after getting routed by the Clippers in a painful loss on Sunday. The line is short enough for this one, so I'm sticking with the more reliable Knicks to get the win and cover on the road.
