Matchup | Preview 

New York

4 of their final 6 are on the road beginning with this one right after they host the Celtics Tuesday night.  It is no gimme either, as the Knicks lost to New Jersey at MSG the last time these teams played.

In the Knicks last game Carmelo Anthony did all he could against Miami scoring 42 points.  It was an impressive and efficient performance but his oneness couldn’t outshine the Heat’s vaunted trio, who all scored 16 points or more.  For this one Amare Stoudemire is still on the shelf but they are going to have to be careful with him from here on out.  You don’t want to rush him back but you might need him to actually make the playoffs.

New Jersey

The New Jersey Nets have not been quitting and have been putting their stamp on the East by making playoff contenders work for it.  They will look to continue to do the same against New York who they have split with this season.  It will be hard for the Nets over these last few games as ace point guard Deron Williams is out for Wednesday night and as a result of their not making the playoffs, might not play again this year.

With his teammates dropping like flies forward Kris Humphries is taking off.  In the Nets last game he only collected 8 boards while scoring a season high 29 points.  I doubt he is becoming an offensive force but he might be the Nets best option right now.  The rest of the supporting cast might not be top flight talent but these guys are working hard to prove they belong in the NBA.  Rookie guard Marshon Brooks has a developing game.

Spread Pick:  New Jersey +7
O/U Pick: Over
Score Prediction  New Jersey 96 – New York 95
