The Utah Jazz and the New York Knicks collide at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night. Here’s a Jazz vs Knicks Prediction.

Utah Jazz

The Utah Jazz have been in fine form as they’ve won eight of their last 12 games, but they will be hoping to bounce back in this one after having their two-game win streak halted by the lowly Nets in a 147-114 loss last night. Keyonte George led the team in scoring with 21 points off the bench, John Collins added 15 points on seven of 10 shooting while Lauri Markkanen chipped in with 13 points. As a team, the Jazz shot just 45 percent from the field and nine of 27 from the 3-point line, but they didn’t come out ready to play defense and got burned by 43 points in the first quarter and another 43 points in the fourth quarter to suffer one of their worst defeats of the season. The Jazz will take on the 76ers after this one.

Utah Jazz Team Facts

  • The Jazz have won each of their last five games as underdogs against Eastern Conference opponents following a loss.
  • The Jazz have covered the spread in each of their last seven games as underdogs against opponents who are on the second leg of a back-to-back.
  • Each of the Jazz’s last four games as underdogs have gone OVER the total points line.

New York Knicks

Meanwhile, the New York Knicks have been on fire as they’ve won 13 of their last 15 games overall and they will be eager to build on their seven-game win streak after making light work of the lowly Hornets in a 113-92 road win last night. Jalen Brunson led the team with 32 points and seven assists on 13 of 24 shooting, Donte DiVincenzo added 28 points with five assists while Isaiah Hartenstein chipped in with 10 points. As a team, the Knicks shot 52 percent from the field and 12 of 37 from the 3-point line as they held the Hornets to just 18 points in the second quarter to take the early lead, before they exploded for 44 points in the third quarter to push the margin out to 29 points at one stage. The Knicks will face the Pacers after this game.

New York Knicks Team Facts

  • The Knicks have won each of their last nine night games at Madison Square Garden.
  • The Knicks have covered the spread in seven of their last eight home games against Western Conference opponents.
  • Each of the Knicks’ last seven night games have gone UNDER the total points line.

Jazz vs Knicks Prediction

The Knicks are still shorthanded with Julius Randle and OG Anunoby still out, while the Jazz are coming in with a full squad once again. The Jazz are coming into this one fresh off an ugly loss to the slumping Nets last night, but they were on a nice run before that defeat, while the Knicks have continued to pile on the wins despite missing Randle who will be out for a few weeks. I think the Jazz will come out swinging after getting embarrassed last night, but I don’t think it will be enough to take down the Knicks who are just rolling at the moment.
