The Cavaliers extended their winning streak to seven on Tuesday with a thrilling 118-114 win over the Jazz.

Meanwhile, the Knicks had won two straight before losing to the Hornets in a 95-93 defeat on Wednesday. Carmelo Anthony poured in 29 points while Kristaps Porzingis added 10 points and 15 rebounds, but the Knicks just went ice-cold in a 26-14 fourth quarter dominated by the Hornets. The game actually went down to the very last second and it looked like Porzingis nailed the game-winning three, but the shot was called late by the referees opon review.
In ATS trends, the Cavaliers are 0-5 ATS in their last five games following a win and 0-4 ATS in their last four against the Eastern Conference, while the Knicks are 4-1 ATS in their last five against the Eastern Conference and 0-5 ATS in their last five home games.
Head to head, the Cavaliers are 2-5 ATS in their last seven meetings but the road team is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings.
It's always great when LeBron and Carmelo meet up, but I have to say that LeBron has the edge in this one, so I'm taking the Cavs to get this one.
