New York Knicks vs Orlando Magic prediction

The New York Knicks are limping toward the all star break as they’re still without Randle and Anunoby, and there’s a chance they could be down Hartenstein and DiVincenzo. The Orlando Magic are on the end of a back to back, but they don’t have a single player on the injury list, so they have the edge here. It’s hard to get behind the Knicks given their current form and all of the injuries. The Magic have won the last 3 games against the Knicks and despite the loss yesterday to the Thunder, they’re still the best covering team in the league with 35 covers. I’ll lay the bucket with the Magic.
