Kings vs Knicks prediction

The Kings are good enough to consider in the underdog role against anybody, but they're still down Malik Monk, and that's a major blow when on the other side of the country in a hostile environment. The Knicks are too good to allow these losses to get out of control, and they need a win as they're stuck in the middle of a competitive East. The Knicks could finish in the third seed or end up in a play-in situation. The Knicks need to stop the bleeding now or things could get ugly. The Knicks have won 5 of the last 6 games against the Kings. The line is reasonable. Give me the Knicks and the small chalk.
