New York Knicks

The New York Knicks have been in red-hot form as they've won 12 of their last 14 games overall and they will be eager to build on their current six-game win streak after blowing past the Heat in a 125-109 win on Saturday. Jalen Brunson led the team with 32 points and eight assists on 12 of 22 shooting, Julius Randle and OG Anunoby added 19 points while Josh Hart chipped in with 14 points, nine rebounds and five assists off the bench. As a team, the Knicks shot 51 percent from the field and 17 of 33 from the 3-point line as they dominated the second quarter to take the early lead, but they were in a real dog fight with the Heat until the Knicks exploded for 36 points in the fourth quarter to make it look easy in the end.

Charlotte Hornets

Meanwhile, the Charlotte Hornets have been in a real funk as they've lost 10 of their last 12 games overall and they will be hoping to arrest a three-game skid after getting routed by the Jazz in a 134-122 loss on Saturday. PJ Washington led the team with 43 points on 17 of 22 shooting off the bench, Nick Richards added 26 points with 13 rebounds and four blocks while Miles Bridges chipped in with 21 points, nine rebounds and six assists. As a team, the Hornets shot 51 percent from the field and 13 of 32 from the 3-point line, but this game was out of reach before halftime as the Hornets got off to a terrible start and were already trailing by 23 points by the end of the first quarter. The Hornets actually trailed by as many as 36 points before they made a run in the second half to keep the final scores respectable.

Knicks vs Hornets Prediction

We have a classic case of two teams headed in opposite directions with the Knicks coming into this meeting as one of the hottest teams in the league, while the Hornets have continued to struggle as they've lost 10 of their last 12 games. Julius Randle is on the injury report after suffering a dislocated shoulder in his last game, but the Knicks are still the play at this reasonable line.
