The New York Knicks look to continue to excite fans and prove that they belong in the playoffs, as they take on the Detroit Pistons at the Little Caesars Arena this Saturday evening.
New York Knicks
The Knicks are now a full game ahead of the Boston Celtics in the standings which is something that would have been hard to predict back in the off-season with so much expected of the Celtics and virtually nothing expected from the Knicks.
The playoffs are not secured yet, though, as the Knicks need to avoid falling apart down the stretch here and I do not think they will have things all their own way in this game against Detroit, as the Pistons have proven to not be an easy W.
The Knicks do need to bounce back off of a heartbreaking loss last time out, as they fell to the Minnesota Timberwolves by a score of 102 to 101 with Anthony Edwards essentially stealing that game away from New York in the back half of the 4th quarter of that game.
Julius Randle once again had an outstanding performance against the Timberwolves putting up 26 points 12 boards and 6 dimes in that eventual loss and needless to say the Knicks would not be in this situation if he did not maintain his all-star level for so long this season.
The Pistons should not feel to bad coming into this contest winning two of their last three and although those wins did not come against the greatest competition in the world it should at least give them a bit of momentum and belief that they can derail the Knicks playoff plans here on their home court.
Josh Jackson went nuts in this team’s last win over the Wizards shooting 13 of 21 and putting up 31 points in what ended up being a rare blow out victory for the Pistons. I would not expect offensive production here against the Knicks, as they have the league’s number one defense, but it would not surprise me if Jackson is able to continue with the hot hand which will help the Pistons mightily on Saturday.
A lot of the onus for this team lay on the shoulders of Jerami Grant though, as his breakout season is the main reason the wheels have not completely fell of this Detroit side and he should be plenty involved here against the Knicks, so he will be one to watch on the interior against Randle.

Free New York Knicks vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction:
The Knicks have an awesome defense, and I think they have a great chance to hold the Pistons under 100 points here. The Knicks also do not have some explosive offense who will destroy this Pistons defense and although the total here is low I do believe it will stay under.
This game is also projected to have a very slow pace of play which should help in limiting fast break points and possessions in general which should aid the under in coming through.
