New York Knicks Betting

The New York Knicks are now tied with the Toronto Raptors for the fourth-best record in the NBA Eastern Conference. Their record now stands at 17-17 and they would very much need this win to get over the .500 mark. This team was able to pick up wins over the Sacramento Kings and the latest was a three-point victory against the Indiana Pacers. Julius Randle continues to provide the team excellent numbers with 28 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and four steals. RJ Barrett is another scoring machine who gave them 24 points, seven rebounds and four three-pointers.
