New York Knicks
Five Knicks scored in double digits at Golden State including Michael Beasley (21), Courtney Lee (20), Enes Kanter (16), Jarrett Jack (13) and Tim Hardaway Jr. (11).
Despite getting out to a ten point lead in the first quarter the Warriors woke up in the second quarter and breezed to an easy win. The Knicks need to figure out their road woes as they’ll play another 17 games away from the Garden and need to win more than 25% if they want to make the post season.
Kristaps Porzingis was selected by coaches as an All-Star reserve and will make his first appearance in the big game. Porzingis didn’t play in the game versus the Golden State Warriors and his status for this game is questionable due to a sore knee.
Kyle O’Quinn (calf) also missed the last game and his status is questionable as well. due to a calf injury
The win over the Blazers was huge as the Nuggets had lost two in a row and needed to get back on track. Canadian Jamal Murray lit up Portland for 38 points, 6 assists and 5 rebounds in the win. Nikola Jokic registered a double-double of 16 points and 12 rebounds (plus 5 assists).
Since losing Paul Millsap with a torn wrist ligament in late November the Nuggets have struggled to string together wins.
The other area Denver is suffering is defensively where Millsap was a steadying force. Since Millsap won’t return until the end of February at earliest head coach Mike Malone needs to get his charges on track if they want to capture a playoff seed.
Kenneth Faried missed the game versus Portland (ankle) and his presence is in this game is questionable.

Free New York Knicks vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction: line is off
Without knowing whether Porzingis will play coupled with the Knicks poor road record it’s hard to pick New York to win this out right.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: line is off
Hard to bet for a team who struggle on the road, particularly considering the opposition is located in Denver where the thin air plays havoc with the majority of visitors. The line was off at time of writing so I’m providing a score only until the line is posted.
