New York Knicks
The New York Knicks continue to be one of the most inconsistent teams in the league. After a tough OT loss against the OKC Thunder, the Knicks find themselves 25-33 on the season. On Monday, New York allowed Oklahoma City to shoot 50 percent from the field during a 127-123 home loss. Julius Randle led the team with a triple-double of 30 points with 13 rebounds and 10 assists, Evan Fournier added 29 points with five assists while Mitchell Robinson chipped in with 14 points, 17 rebounds, four steals and four blocks. The New York Knicks are averaging 105 points on 43.4 percent shooting and allowing 106.5 points on 44.5 percent shooting.
The Brooklyn Nets have endured a rather difficult stretch of games in the last month. Thanks to an 11-game losing streak dating back to the last week of January, the Nets plummeted down the Eastern Conference standings. Seth Curry led the team with 23 points, seven rebounds and five assists, Bruce Brown added 19 points withs ix assists and five steals while LaMarcus Aldridge provided the spark off the bench with 19 points on eight of 11 shooting. The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 110.9 points on 46.8 percent shooting and allowing 110.8 points on 44.8 percent shooting.
The Nets will again be without Joe Harris, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving while the Knicks are not playing well enough to be trusted to cover this number. Therefore, expect the Knicks to win only.
