New York Knicks Betting
The New York Knicks are one of the hottest teams right now in the NBA but they were held off by the Milwaukee Bucks during their return from the NBA All-Star Weekend. That loss puts them down to an even record of 19-19 and at 7th place in the NBA Eastern Conference standings. Julius Randle was named an NBA All-Star for the first time and it looks like fatigue is still with him after playing in the 2021 NBA All-Star Game. He just finished with seven points on 3-of-12 shooting but he was able to contribute eight rebounds, six assists and a block. RJ Barrett tried to carry the team over the Bucks with 22 points but it was not enough.
