The Knicks are an intriguing teams but the story has been the same all season. Until they are whole we are not really going to know just what they are.
On the other side Denver has been very strong early and once they get healthy they look to continue to challenge for supremacy in the Western Conference.
New York Knicks
The Knicks are in a big time funk. They have lost seven in a row and 12 of 13. The lone win in their was an overtime win so that could have easily been a loss too. The last win before that was in OT also. The last time they won in regulation was more than a month ago.
Looking at the most recent loss they were blitzed at Utah, losing by 32 points. All five starters were double figures but no player topped 18 points and they shot 37% as a team. They are experimenting with lineups now and the results are anything but great.
Former starters Enes Kanter and Frank Ntilikina scored two combined points in 33 minutes off the bench. Kanter is usually a rock in terms of production, averaging a double-double so it makes you wonder what they are doing. Losses are one thing but this is kind of weird.
Given that the games are essentially meaningless they are giving rookie Kevin Knox some serious run. He is not shooting the ball well and that is supposed to be one of the skills that transfers easily to the NBA. The only time he has made half his shot in a game where he took ten or more was game number 2.
This has a chance to be another blood bath on the road. The only good thing is that they don’t have to play Denver on a back to back.
Denver is playing without key rotation players on the wing so the fact that they keep winning is impressive. They just beat Phoenix which probably does not look like a lot on the surface but the Suns have been better lately. At home they are tough.
At Phoenix Jamal Murray went off, scoring 46 point while making a season high nine three on eleven attempts. He has shown a great ability to get hot (and cold) and when you factor in his athleticism and size he has become a very tough cover.
The bust out edged him ahead of Nikola Jokic for the scoring lead on the team. Jokic is still one of the most impactful players on the team and the two of them work well together. Jokic is one of the toughest covers in the game right now.

The Nuggets keep winning even though they are shorthanded. Their ATS record at home is 12-5. Very profitable.
Looks for them to be the favorite here and bu a wide margin, which makes sense the way the Knicks have been getting hammered.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Knicks ATS
The Nuggets are going to win but their lack of depth makes me leary of them if the spread is more than 5 or 6. They have not covered in their last 4.
