The New York Knicks and San Antonio Spurs have faced off once this season. On the surface, the result was a shocker.
New York took down San Antonio in close fashion, 94-90. Nobody would have expected the great Spurs to fall to the lowly Knicks, right?
Think again. A savvy bettor looks at trends, but taking it to the next level involves analyzing narratives.
Entering that game, the Knicks had been embarrassed not on the court (okay, also on the court), but off it.
Charles Oakley had recently been arrested and booted from Madison Square Garden, Derrick Rose had gone missing earlier in the year, and just two days prior Phil Jackson had Tweeted agreeing with an article criticizing Carmelo Anthony.
The Knicks needed a win badly for their own egos, and it just so happened that one was on national television.
This time around? No such narratives to be had. The Knicks are still bad…but this one should be ugly.
*All statistics, standings, records, rankings and trends are current as of this writing at 5:00 p.m. ET on Friday, March 24, 2017.
New York Knicks
New York enters this contest on a bad losing streak. The team has won just one of its last eight contests and is in the midst of a five-game losing skid in the process.
On the year, this group is averaging 105.1 points per game. That number is good enough for 14th in the league, but that doens’t make up for the fact that nobody on the roster likes/knows how to efficiently run the triangle.
Defensively, the Knicks are giving up an average of 108.7 points per game. That number puts them at 25th in the league.
To make matters worse, we’re at the point of the season where the tanking Knicks are resting star players.
Keep an eye on who plays and who doesn’t ahead of this one…but the Knicks are in trouble whoever suits up.
San Antonio Spurs
If you’re looking for the opposite of the Knicks, the Spurs epitomize that notion.
This is a classy, professional organization defined by its stability. Not only is this team great on the court (to historic levels in some cases), but it is exactly what every fanbase wants to root for.
Sure, you can call them boring if you want. After all, that’s been the fan critique for years — that their brand of basketball is effective, but not exciting.
But with Kawhi Leonard now leading the way as arguably the game’s best two-way player, that argument holds little weight around water coolers and at sports bars.
And it holds zero weight here, where boring and efficient lead to dominant wins over dramatic and straight bad.
