Portland Trail Blazers Betting

The Portland Trail Blazers fall to a lowly team like the Phoenix Suns to put them to a losing streak. They also lost to the Los Angeles Lakers and Utah Jazz in the process. Carmelo Anthony will be returning to battle his former team and it will be a sight to watch. Expect him to come to the Madison Square Garden with extra motivation. Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum and Hassan Whiteside were having their usual numbers but it was their defense that needed work as Devin Booker and Kelly Oubre ran over them scoring 33 and 29 points each. The New York Knicks will look to guard Carmelo Anthony and make them feel that this is not going to be a night for him to remember.

New York Knicks Betting

Two straight wins right now for the New York Knicks as they disposed of the Brooklyn Nets and Washington Wizards. Julius Randle dominated the paint against the Wizards as he finished with 30 points and 16 rebounds. Bobby Portis came off the bench with 17 points and rookie RJ Barrett had 14 on a 5-for-13 night. They will get their newly found momentum to a test when they face the Blazes with a motivated Carmelo Anthony returning to Madison Square Garden. Mitchell Robinson should be a good matchup for Hassan Whiteside as he is slowly getting his minutes up once again.
