New York Knicks Betting

The New York Knicks are getting frustrated with the four-game losing streak that they had. Their most recent match was just across the city against the Brooklyn Nets and lost by seven points, 109-116. Julius Randle did whatever he can to lift the team with 30 points, seven boards, and five assists but they got help from RJ Barrett with 20 points. Immanuel Quickley had one of his best games with 19 but the team needed more from Elfrid Payton and Austin Rivers to maximize their starter minutes. Consistency has been a huge issue for the Knicks and they will have a good chance to recalibrate against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Cleveland Cavaliers Betting

The Cleveland Cavaliers are very much missing their backcourt tandem of Darius Garland and Collin Sexton. The two guards carry the most talked about a nickname for their tandem in “Sexland”. This team is now on a three-game losing streak and new acquisitions Taurean Prince and Jarrett Allen are still not cleared to play in this game. As usual, the Cavs will have Andre Drummond trying to do the heavy lifting along with Larry Nance Jr. and Cedi Osman. The positives so far are getting more experience to their rookies in Isaac Okoro and Demyean Dotson.

Players to Watch: C. Sexton PG 8 GP 8 GS 37.4 MIN 25.1 PTS 0.5 OR 1.6 DR 2.1 REB 3.5 AST 1.4 STL 0.3 BLK 2.1 TO 2.9 PF 1.6 AST/TO 19.99 PER
