Remember when the Knicks were in the playoff hunt? Well, if not it was not that long ago, but while they are coming off a win they have lost 12 of their last 15 games.
New York is now tied with Milwaukee for the 3rd fewest wins in the Eastern Conference and they are 6.5-games out of the last playoff spot.
The Nuggets are 6 games out of the last playoff spot in the West and they have won 2 of their last 3 games.
In their last games the Knicks beat the Detroit Pistons 102-89 and the Nuggets beat the Dallas Mavericks 116-114 in OT.
New York Knicks
The Knicks do have a legit defense, but their offense only ranks 25th in the league in scoring. Carmelo Anthony leads New York in both scoring and rebounding, but is only shooting 42.8% from the field.
Rookie sensation Kristaps Porzingis has a legit injury and is day to day and he missed the Pistons win. He has failed to shoot at least 50% from the floor in the last 4 games.
New York is 10-20 on the road this season.
Earlier this season in New York the Nuggets beat the Knicks 101-96.
The Nuggets rank 19th in the league in scoring and 23rd in opponents’ points allowed. While Denver has been decent as of late leading scorer Danilo Gallinari has missed the last few games with an ankle injury and he may be shut down for the rest of the season.
Denver is 13-19 at home this season.
Even with Gallinari out the Nuggets have 5 players that are averaging in double figures. 4 of 5 starters scored at last 13 points in the win over Dallas in their last game led by Kenneth Faried.
He has taken up the scoring slack and has scored more than his season average in 4 of his last 5 games.
The Knicks only have 1 win in their last 10 road games.
