New York gets a bit of a break with Charlotte playing Detroit at home on Friday.
This team needs all the help they can get these days. They are not playing winning basketball.
Saturday night is always a weird spot for an NBA game for me. Maybe the Knicks can steal one.
Charlotte is hoping to break a four game losing streak on Friday before hitting the road for New York. If not things could get pretty ugly pretty fast.
Injuries are not helping a team that was going to struggle with depth no matter what. They are going to be without Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Dwayne Bacon and Nic Batum for this one.
I like the one-two punch of Terry Rozier and Devonte’ Graham at the point. They can get scoring from both but I am not sure playing them together is going to help them win.
Cody Zeller gives them decent production at the five spot but he is not great defensively. This team does not protect the rim very well.
They are also struggling for production from their forwards. They are going young here with top pick PJ Washington and last year’s pick Miles Bridges. Washington has shot it better than expected but this duo is still not very reliable.
It seems like every position just leaves you wanting a little more so it should be no surprise that the Hornets are not killing it.
New York Knicks
For just the third time this season the Knicks are off a win. They have not won back to back games all season long.
The win was over Dallas, a team they will be linked to for some time due to the Porzingis trade. An interesting note about the win is that they got as many points from the bench as they did from the starters. That does not happen often.
Rookie RJ Barrett has had his moments but is clearly not setting the league on fire. They are probably asking more of him than they should in terms of playmaking and for whatever reason his free throw shooting has been abysmal, less than 50% so far this season. The Knicks can’t afford to leave any points on the table.
New York is a bad team and it seems like they are a mismatched team too. It is completely unclear as to how all the new and old, inexperienced and veteran parts will fit together.

Free Charlotte Hornets vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction:
I like the spot for New York here. They are at home, off a win and they get a tired Charlotte team.
I think they might actually be favoured in this one which is kind of scary though.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: (Lean to the Knicks -4)
Backing bad teams is never fun but there is no good team in this scenario so it is more comforting.
