The New York Knicks look to make it consecutive wins tonight when they take on the Orlando Magic at Madison Square Garden.
The Knicks just ended their nine-game losing streak in fine fashion when they trounced the Brooklyn Nets by 113-83 last night. Carmelo Anthony led the team with 19 points, while Iman Shumpert added 17, but the Knicks were able to give all their reserves plenty of court time after outscoring the Nets by 34-16 in the third quarter. As a team, the Knicks made a season high 16 three pointers from 27 attempts while holding the Nets to 39.7 percent shooting which are both great signs for the Knicks. With the win, NY improve to 4-13 on the season and 3-6 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Magic have lost 10 of their last 13 and their last three straight after falling to the 76ers by 126-125 on Tuesday. Arron Afflalo led the team with 43 points, Glen Davis added 33 points and Victory Oladipo registered his first triple-double of 26 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists but it still wasn't enough as the Magic fell short in double overtime. On a side note, Nikola Vucevic sat out the game with a sprained left ankle and Jameer Nelson had a sprained left foot, so both are listed as questionable for tonight's game against the Knicks.
In ATS trends, the Magic are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games overall and 1-4-1 ATS in their last six road games, while the Knicks are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games following a win.
Head to head, the Magic are 0-6 ATS in the last six meetings overall and 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings in New York.
