Two outsiders at the Eastern Conference, the New York Knicks and the Washington Wizards, will play each other in the legendary Madison Square Garden. Who will be able to correct their statistics? Consider the predictions and betting options for the upcoming match.
Washington Wizards 8-20 (14-13-1 ATS)
Wizards go the season a little better than the New York Knicks. The Scott Brooks team currently has 8–20 and has only 12th place in the Eastern Conference standings. The state of affairs of Washington is due to many factors. The most important of them, probably, is a large number of injured. Recently, the team has actually been left without a center at all. So, 7 defeats in the previous 8 matches are not at all surprising.
Isaiah Thomas also made life difficult for his team. The point guard once again made a conflict with the fans during a meeting with Philadelphia, for which he was removed from the floor, and also received a suspension for 2 games. Yes, the Wizards have problems everywhere this season.
New York Knicks 7-23 (15-15 ATS)
The dismissal of David Fitzdale, of course, had no effect on the results of the New York Knicks team. And here is the coach, if fatal mistakes were made even during the formation of the roster for this season. James Dolan, if he is, of course, still interested in the Knicks project, should take a closer look at the managerial staff. It seems that the root of the problems lies here.
In general, a team like the Knicks should be forgotten this season. The team with Madison Square Garden won only 7 matches out of 30. You can observe individual personalities. Very interesting, in particular, is JJ Barrett. First Year made career-high in a recent match against Atlanta, gaining 27 points. There, the Knicks won 143: 120, which, of course, speaks only of the weakness of the Hawks defense, which at the moment is the only team in the East with a worse balance of wins and losses than New York.
- The Knicks have won 3 of their last 4 face-to-face meetings.
- At home, the Knickerbockers lost 7 of their last 8 personal confrontations.
- Away Washington lost 7 of their last 8 matches.
- “New York”: Wayne Ellington, Reggie Bullock – will not play.
- “Washington”: Thomas Bryant, Moritz Wagner, Jordan McCray, John Wall, Isaiah Thomas – will not play. Davis Bertans, CJ Miles – in doubt.
