Miami Heat Betting

The arrival of Jimmy Butler had sparked the Miami Heat and created a culture of winning. Goran Dragic the team’s second-leading scorer and he will be coming off the bench. So far this season, Dragic’s name has become a contender for this year’s 6th man award. Miami scored a full house in the NBA draft with rookies Tyler Herro, Kendrick Nunn and Duncan Robinson each averaging double figures for the season. Bam Adebayo will be a force in the Knicks interior and he has proven to be deserving of that spot since the departure of Hassan Whiteside.

Players to watch: J. Butler SF 33 GP 33 GS 35.2 MIN 20.6 PTS 2 OR 4.9 DR 6.9 REB 6.5 AST 2 STL 0.5 BLK 2.5 TO 1.3 PF 2.5 AST/TO 23.95 PER

New York Knicks Betting

The New York Knicks doesn’t have a shortage of quality power forwards. In fact, this is their problem right now as they try to juggle Julius Randle, Marcus Morris and Bobby Portis in that position. So far, it has been Bobby Portis that has his numbers suffered but he has to bow down to the stellar play of Randle as well as the shooting accuracy of Morris which he can play on the three spot. The real problem of the Knicks right now is the guard position where RJ Barrett was supposed to dominate but he has been shooting below 40% for the season. Elfrid Payton was gon from the lineup at the start of the season but his comeback and lack of scoring is hurting this team.

Players to Watch: J. Randle PF 37 GP 37 GS 32.1 MIN 18.5 PTS 2.2 OR 6.9 DR 9.1 REB 3.2 AST 0.7 STL 0.2 BLK 2.9 TO 2.7 PF 1.1 AST/TO 16.74 PER
