It was a difficult start to the season for the New York Knicks as the team was banged up and it was a key contributor on both ends of the court who was injured. Tyson Chandler is a key cog in the Knicks overall plans. He does a good job of defending the basketball and when in the lineup we see lower opponents field goal percentage. Fortunately for New York the Eastern conference as a whole is weak. While the team was struggling on the court they were really not out of the playoff hunt. A check of the Eastern conference standings and we find the New York Knicks just ½ game behind the Brooklyn Nets for the eighth and final seed in the Eastern conference playoff race. The Knicks have held opponents to 92 points or fewer in their past five games with at least one day of rest. The team will play Indiana on Thursday night with a day of rest. There is also playoff revenge in play for New York as it was the Pacers who eliminated New York in the Eastern Conference semifinals so there is sense of revenge in this game. A rivalry has built up between these two teams. The first meeting of the series was held in New York and the game went into overtime. With the Knicks committing on the defensive end of the court the ten point line is a bit too high considering Carmelo Anthony can generate points for New York.
With our NBA Pro Basketball pick for Thursday we will play on the New York Knicks +10 points against the Indiana Pacers but prior to wagering be sure to claim sportsbook promotion codes.
