New York Knicks Betting

The Knicks are coming off a loss against the Sixers as they almost had the game but they were outgunned in the final minute. The good thing for New York is they got Marcus Morris back and he provided with 20 points and six rebounds. Julius Randle controlled the paint as he maximized the absence of Joel Embiid with 14 points and 12 rebounds. Reggie Bullock replaced RJ Barrett on the starting lineup and he had 14 points. Bobby Portis was noticeably off-tuned as he just logged in 13 minutes and just scored three points on seven attempts. The Knicks have to contend and try to contain Collin Sexton in this game as he and Darius Garland will try to outrun their backcourt.

Collin Sexton had 26 points and seven rebounds while Cedi Osman and Darius Garland each had 16 points for the team. Tristan Thompson was the man in the paint and he provided with 14 points, eight rebounds and three blocks.
