NBA Basketball Betting Odds:
New York Knicks
The Knicks enter tonight’s matchup sporting a meager 13-55 record that ranks them dead last in the division. Nevertheless, the Knicks will still take to the court tonight to try and upset San Antonio. All in all New York is 4-6 in their last 10 versus the Spurs and 1-2 in their last 3. Although they’ve proven capable of beating San Antonio in the past, it doesn’t seem like they’ll be able to pose a threat this evening. After all, New York has zero momentum and the Spurs are on a roll. Furthermore, tonight’s numbers don’t paint a pretty picture for New York. At the present time they rank 27th in scoring and 24th in points allowed. Comparatively the Spurs rank 16th in scoring and 15th on defense. If those numbers pan out this evening, the Knicks are in for yet another blowout.
Players to Watch: Tim Hardaway Jr. (19.1 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 2.7 apg), Dennis Smith Jr. (14.6 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 6.0 apg), and Emmanuel Mudiay (14.2 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 3.7 apg).
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs ride into this Friday night matchup sporting a 39-29 record on the year. This ranks them 2nd in the Southwest Division but 7th overall in the Western Conference. Right now San Antonio has a 1 ½ game lead over the 8th seeded Clippers. However, they do have a 5 ½ game lead over the 9th seeded Sacramento Kings. As can be seen San Antonio’s playoff chances are not on the line tonight. Notwithstanding, the Spurs will use this matchup against the Knicks to pick up an easy win and strengthen their postseason standing. Tonight’s NBA basketball betting odds are pegging them as a heavy favorite, which was to be expected.
Players to Watch: DeMar DeRozan (21.7 ppg, 6.1 rpg, 6.1 apg), LaMarcus Aldridge (21.3 ppg, 8.9 rpg, 2.4 apg), and Rudy Gay (14.2 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 2.6 apg).
