New York Knicks

The New York Knicks have been in great form as they've won six of their last seven games overall and they will be aiming for a third straight win after routing the Pistons in a 124-99 win on Monday. Donte DiVincenzo drained a career-high 11 3-pointers to lead the team with 40 points on 14 of 23 shooting, Jalen Brunson added 28 points with six rebounds while Josh Hart tallied a triple-double of 11 points with 14 rebounds and 10 assists. As a team, the Knicks shot 50 percent from the field and 19 of 46 from the 3-point line as they jumped all over the Pistons from the start, dominating the first quarter by 36-17 before they poured in another 36 points in the third quarter to put the game to bed early.

Toronto Raptors

Meanwhile, the Toronto Raptors have been in terrible shape as they've lost 13 of their last 14 games overall and they will be hoping to snap an 11-game losing streak after getting beaten by the Nets in a 96-88 loss on Monday. Gary Trent Jr led the team with 18 points, Javon Freeman-Liberty added 15 points while Ochai Agabji chipped in with 11 points. As a team, the Raptors shot 43 percent from the field and just five of 27 from the 3-point line as they played solid defense to take the lead early in the fourth quarter, but they couldn't maintain that intensity and allowed the Nets to go on a decisive 12-2 run to take the game away from them in a disappointing finish.

Knicks vs Raptors prediction

The Knicks are still without Julius Randle and they are keeping an eye on Alec Burks who is questionable for this one, while the Raptors are still missing Scottie Barnes, RJ Barrett and Immanuel Quickley to name a few. The Knicks are playing some of their best basketball of the season right now, they just make light work of the Pistons in a big win on Monday and they shouldn't have too much trouble beating this Raptors team who have won just one of their last 14 games overall.
