New York Knicks

Meanwhile, the New York Knicks have been in fine form as they've won four of their last five games overall and they will be gunning for a fourth straight win after taking down the Celtics in a 118-109 road win on Thursday. Jalen Brunson led the team with 39 points on 15 of 23 shooting, Donte DiVincenzo added 17 points while Josh Hart chipped in with 16 points, 16 rebounds and five assists. As a team, the Knicks shot 49 percent from the field and 14 of 36 from the 3-point line as they dominated right from the start, building themselves a 31-point lead, before they held off a late rally from the Celtics who exploded for 38 points in the fourth quarter.

Nets vs Knicks prediction

The Nets are still missing Dennis Smith Jr, Jaylen Martin and Dorian Finney-Smith, while the Knicks are going to be without Julius Randle and Duane Washington Jr again. The Nets have found a bit of form over their past four games, but the Knicks have been the more consistent team all season, and they will be full of confidence following their win over the Celtics. The line is hefty for this one, but I still like the Knicks to get the win and cover at home.
