The New York Knicks look for a win to get back to a .500 record. The New York Knicks are averaging 102 points on 41.8 percent shooting and allowing 101.8 points on 43.2 percent shooting. Carmelo Anthony is averaging 21.8 points and 7.8 rebounds while Kristaps Porzingis is averaging 12 points and 7.4 rebounds. Jerian Grant is dishing 3.4 assists and Kyle O'Quinn is grabbing 6.6 rebounds. The New York Knicks are getting 47.2 points from their bench, which is 14 points more than league average. The Knicks just need a little more firepower from their starters to string some wins together. The Knicks have lost five straight home games.
The Bucks are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Knicks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 vs. Eastern Conference. The Bucks are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in New York and the over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
I like the fight the Knicks are playing with this season and it's only a matter of time before they get a home victory. Everybody knows I love this young Bucks squad, but their defense isn't up to par right now. I'll take New York to finally snap its home losing streak.
