The Knicks have to be looking at this season as a write off. Sure it is possible that Kristaps comes back just in time to push them into the playoffs but what would that really achieve. The one thing you can say is that they appear to be playing hard.
Washington is an absolute mess. They are losing every which way and their lone win was by a point. Things could be even worse.
New York Knicks
New York arrives in Washington off a win at Dallas. It was their first road win of the season so they have to have some confidence and will be acutely aware of the struggles of Washington. Perhaps this is a good spot to look at them closely.
With nobody else around Tim Hardaway is having a fantastic start, averaging a career best 25ppg. I still seem him as more of a complimentary piece but there is no doubt he can score. His three point shooting has been really good this season.
The Knicks are giving lots of guys a shot to prove themselves this season and one player who has looked good early is Alonzo Trier, a rookie from Arizona. He is shooting the ball really well and is a gunner like Hardaway. You don’t really get much else from him.
New York is playing good defense but they are soft on the boards. I have always liked the relentless nature of Enes Kanter but he is the only one who rebounds on this team most of the time. He is averaging 14 and 10 and makes sure they do not get pushed around too badly.
New York is going to be enigmatic this season for sure. They are no tanking it seems but at the same time it is a development year so you have to pick your spots.
Things are not good in the nation’s capital. I don’t think there was a single pundit who had Washington out of the playoffs but they have been terrible. You can simply look at one number if you want. No team gives up more points than Washington.
Dwight Howard was seen as a key acquisition this offseason but he has been hurt most of the season. He saw his first action in their most recent loss to OKC and didn’t look too bad though he was not able to do much in stopping them from giving up 134 points at home.
I know it is early in the season but I think this falls into a must win situation. Records aside they are better than New York and they are at home. They have to start turning things around quickly or else heads are going to start to roll.

Free New York Knicks vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction:
No line yet but I have to think the Wizards will be the favourite, even though they have been terrible. I want to back them too but have been burned a bunch of times this season.
Probably Washington is something like -4 or -5 for this one. I like that line a lot but I am recommending it with trepidation. Howard is back but what that impact will be is hard to say just yet.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Washington ATS
Look for Washington to get a solid win here. I think it will be the kind of one that makes you think they might get it turned around.
