The Indiana Pacers will be on the road to take on the New York Knicks on Tuesday, January 4th.
The tip-off is set for 7:30 ET from Madison Square Garden.
New York opened up as a 1.5 point favorite and that number has really not changed. The total has shifted from 208.5 to 209.
It has been a very rough season for this Pacers team so far. There has not been a lot of positivity associated with them.
This team has lost four games in a row. Even though they are not going anywhere, it would be nice for them to pick up a win on Tuesday when they head to MSG.
Going into the season, I never thought this team would be a contender in the Eastern Conference, but I definitely thought they would be playing better than this. The way they have played this season has been unacceptable.
The struggles would be more understanding if they were devoid of talent, but that is not the case. This is a group that is talented, but they just clearly are not playing well together.
Indiana dropped to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday by a score of 108-104. Sure, they were close, but they still were not able to get the job done.
Domantas Sabonis was the leading scorer for this team in the loss to Cleveland with 32 points and 13 rebounds. In a season full of disappointment, he has been a bright spot for this club.
New York Knicks
All in all, the Knicks have not played all that well this year. Sure, they could get better as the year goes on, but I have a hard time seeing that happen, frankly.
New York has a record of 17-20, which puts them in 11th place in the Eastern Conference. Simply put, that kind of play is not going to get it cut in the big apple.
A lot of Knicks fans are not going to want to hear this, but the team they have right now is not good enough to win all that much in the playoffs. You are not going to win a title or even be a contender if Julius Randle is your best player. The NBA is all about talent and this crew does not have enough of it.
This squad lost to the Toronto Raptors on Sunday by a score of 120-105. You cannot lose by that many points to a team that is not all that good.
With Randle and Walker out, other players are on this roster are going to have to step up and I am really not sure of that happening. I do not think the Knicks have guys that can take over when some of their best scorers are not on the floor.
NBA Betting Trends:

- The Knicks are 3-6 ATS in their last 9 games against an opponent in the Central Division.
Indiana Pacers vs. New York Knicks NBA Analysis:
This is a battle between two teams that need to start playing better ball. I guess something has to give.
New York did play some games without Julius Randle, but there is a chance that he comes back in this one, as he is listed as questionable.
The Knicks have not played all that well at home this year, which is a bit concerning. They should be able to take care of teams that are not that good on their home floor.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Pacers ATS
Look, I know the Pacers have not been all that great this year, but I trust them in this spot more than the Knicks. I can see them being very competitive in this game.
I know the 1.5 is not a huge number to lay here, but I just do not love it with New York. Based on how they have been playing, they may flat lose this ball game.
