New York Knicks Betting
The New York Knicks snapped their three-game losing streak in a subway battle with the Brooklyn Nets. In that win, the Knicks were carried by Julius Randle who had 33 points and eight rebounds while Marcus Morris had 22 points and eight rebounds as well. Elfrid Payton has been great for the Knicks since returning from injury and he provided stability at the point guard position. Mitchel Robinson came off the bench with 10 points and ten rebounds. RJ Barrett had an off night shooting 20% from the field and finished with a dismal 5 points. Against the Wizards, the Knicks would just have to do the same things that they did against the Nets. If they get Barrett more involved then this game should swing in favor to the Knicks.
Players to watch: J. Randle PF 31 GP 31 GS 31.7 MIN 17.9 PTS 2.3 OR 6.4 DR 8.6 REB 3.2 AST 0.7 STL 0.1 BLK 2.9 TO 2.7 PF 1.1 AST/TO 16.5 PER
Washington Wizards Betting
Washington had been 1-4 for their past five games and they fall to the Detroit Pistons in their last game by 30 points. The scary sight is seeing Bradley Beal go out and is doubtful for this game and it makes their chances against the Knicks getting dimmer. One good thing about their game with the Pistons is that players from the bench stepped up with four players in double figures. Anzejs Pasecnicks had 17 points, six rebounds and five steals while Troy Brown had 13 points and six rebounds. Gary Payton II and Jordan McCrae had 10 and 15 points respectively. Still, this could be an opportunity for other players to shine for the Wizards but with Beal questionable for this game or even at 100%, their chances to score a win over the Knicks will get harder.
Players to Watch: B. Beal SG 29 GP 29 GS 37.1 MIN 28.3 PTS 1.1 OR 3.8 DR 4.9 REB 6.8 AST 1.1 STL 0.3 BLK 3.4 TO 2.6 PF 2 AST/TO 20.93 PER
