New York Knicks
The Knicks are just off of a stretch of four winnable games in which they went 2–2. They beat the Mavericks and Hawks (for the second time this season) and lost to Washington and Chicago.
Two of the next five games are against Orlando but, otherwise, New York’s schedule ramps up from here. The Knicks have this one, at OKC and at New Orleans mixed in with the Magic games and then matchups with the Blazers, Celtics, Pelicans (again) and Grizzlies.
So as bad as the 4–8 record is already, it’s probably only destined to get worse. I miss Kristaps Porzingis. He’s still without a clear timetable for his return from the torn ACL he suffered close to a year ago now. He’s been sprinting and working out but it still sounds like he’s a long way off. I’m guessing sometime in 2019 when the Knicks are way out of it already.
Meanwhile, guys like rookie Allonzo Trier will continue to play big minutes. He scored nineteen points in thirty-six minutes in New York’s last game against the Hawks.
Toronto has dominated the talk around the NBA in October and November. It should come as no surprise and, you’d think at least, by now we should all be weary about it but nobody seems to be saying that this is the same thing we’ve seen for the last few seasons.
Maybe it’s because the Raptors no longer have to deal with LeBron James. It could also be that this time Toronto has the best player in the Eastern Conference in Kawhi Leonard. There seems to once again be tons of optimism about this team, not just in the regular season but as a NBA Finals favorite.
I’m still not so sure this team is better than Boston. In fact, I definitely don’t think it is but a home-court advantage in the playoffs would help, which is what the Raptors are playing for now and in great position (in the very early going) to get.
But enough with the negatives. Toronto just swept a four-game West Coast road trip over the Suns, Lakers, Jazz and Kings. It lost Norman Powell for several weeks but a return home with a healthy Leonard should be more than enough to overcome that loss.

Free New York Knicks vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Prediction: Knicks in a narrow cover.
Fourteen points is a lot in the NBA but that number probably isn’t too high, given the way the Raptors are playing. But after a West Coast trip, a 3:00 pm start could be tricky. I’m taking New York to lose by thirteen and cover.
