The New York Knicks are shocking fans and bettors alike, as they have covered over 65% of their spreads this year and look primed to now make the playoffs when there was zero hype about this team during the preseason.
New York Knicks
The Knicks are on an insane 12-2 run in their last 14 games and what makes it even more impressive is the only two games they lost were against two of the very best teams in the West in the Suns and Nuggets.
They will be looking to bounce-back off of a loss though, as they did drop their last game to Denver and they did not look all that competitive in that game, so it will be interesting to see how this young and talented Knicks team reacts to that loss.
The biggest issue by far for the Knicks in that game against Denver was the rebounding, as the Nuggets were able to out-rebound them by a margin of 22, which is not exactly a recipe for success and a repeat of that performance on the boards will once again see them getting blown out.
Everything seemed to be going fine for the Phoenix Suns before running into the buzz saw that is the Atlanta Hawks which saw the Suns drop that last game to the team from the East by a score of 135-103.
It is hard to know what exactly went wrong for the Suns in that contest, but playing against teams like the Cavs and the OKC Thunder in their previous two games might have done something to this team, as those other teams are noncompetitive in comparison to the Hawks.
Given the incredible season the Suns have had so far it would be hard to imagine them not bouncing back here, as they will know the Knicks are not to be taken lightly, so I would expect the Suns to show up here with their A-game.

Free New York Knicks vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction:
The spread here is currently set at 6, and that seems like a reasonable amount of points to lay here with the home team, as I really do see them being up for this one. The Knicks are a great story and they can be a lot of fun to cheer for, but they have shown that they are not on the level of the elite teams in the West and the Suns are certainly one of those teams.
