The Knicks continue to play well and beat up on bad teams. This looks like another situation for the latter. They did just beat Melo in a return to the garden for the former star but that OKC team is a mess. New York has been a bad road team all season long so don’t get too caught up in it.
I am not sure what the realistic expectations were for Charlotte. Whatever they were they are in a funk (lost 8 of 10) and look like they are going to be out of the playoffs in the East.
New York Knicks
The Knicks are on a good run right now. They are back over .500 thanks to winning four in a row and five of six. Their last win was exciting so there could definitely be a letodwn waiting in Charlotte. Pus they have been bad on the road in all situations.
With them succeeding you would think it would be Kristaps-Mania but he actually missed the recent win over OKC and might be out for this one too. They are alos missing Tim Hardaway Jr who is out till the end of the month.
Those absences have created opportunities. Michael Beasley started in place of Porzingis and scored 30 points against the Thunder. He has always been able to score the rock but is far from the statsheet stuffer that Kirstaps is.
No Hardaway means more Lance Thomas. Thomas will always make the right play and play good defense and rebound but he is not a scoring threat. And not likely to become one just because he is getting more run.
Enes Kanter can pick up some of the load inside and is already one of the better reounders in the league. Thiis is a matchup where he needs some help inside though. Charlotte has good size.
I have to admit I am at a but of loss as to why the Hornets are struggling so much. There is some talent on this team but i think it is the result of not really having a particular strength. Who are these guys really?
Kemba Walker is doing what he does but the team isn’t winning. I think they have to make a decision about himi in the offseason and the way things are going ti would make little sense to give him a max deal on a team that is build the way it is. I am not sure wwhere he goes that makes him the difference maker.
Dwight Howard can still put up numbers in the modern NBA. He will never evolve but that doesn’t mean he is useless. Maybe that is the thing about this team. They are just less than the some f the parts which points square on coaching.

Free New York Knicks vs Charlotte Hornets NBA Prediction:
This will be an interesting line. Charlotte has not been good lately but New York has been just as bad on the road. This is likely to be a pickk em or close to it. Whoever wins covers.
In that kind of scenariio Ican definitely get behind the Knicks. Especially if Porzingis is back in the lineup. You might want to wait to know for sure.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: No line currently posted.
Even though is scares me a bit I am going to roll with the Knicks in this spot. Look for them to win by 5.
