The New York Knicks look for a win after losing seven of their last eight games. On the season, the Knicks are averaging 91.8 points on 42.7 percent shooting and are allowing 101.3 points on 46 percent shooting. Andrea Bargnani is averaging 14.8 points and 4.4 rebounds while Langston Galloway is averaging 11.5 points and 3.2 assists. Tim Hardaway Jr. is dishing 1.7 assists and Jason Smith is grabbing 3.8 rebounds. The New York Knicks are shooting just 41 percent in their last five games and have lost 25 straight when scoring less than 100 points. Six of the Knicks last eight victories have come on their home court. Cleanthony Early is questionable with an ankle injury.
The Bucks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. Eastern Conference and 17-8-1 ATS in their last 26 road games. The Knicks are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. loss and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 vs. NBA Central. The Bucks are 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings in New York and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings overall.
I don't like the Bucks, as they've been nothing but downhill since trading Brandon Knight. I don't like the Knicks either but if forced to pick, you have to side with the points and the home team.
