Los Angeles Lakers vs New York Knicks prediction

The Los Angeles Lakers shocked the NBA world by beating the Celtics without AD and LeBron, but I need to see more. The Lakers continue to take one step forward and two steps back, and there's a chance they're without AD and LeBron again. The New York Knicks have not only won 9 straight games, but they've improved to 29-18-2 ATS on the season. The Knicks are a top-5 covering team in the NBA. As Ive said before, I'm not stepping in front of the Knicks right now, a team that's growing on me, and I'm checking future prices for them to win the East at this point. I'll lay the chalk.
