Neither the Knicks nor the Magic enter this contest owning a top-eight seed in the Eastern Conference. If the playoffs started today, both would be on the outside looking in.
While both are expected to remain on the outside looking in all year, the truth is that out East, the battle to get into the postseason extends to the league’s bottom tiers. Consider the following: The last place Cleveland Cavaliers are just 4.5 games out of the eighth seed.
Currently, New York sits in 11th while the Magic sit in 10th. The Knicks are a mere 2.5 games out of eighth, while Orlando sits just 1.5 games out.
These games in November—especially those between teams with losing records and without star players on the court—don’t get a lot of attention, but as you can see, they mean a lot out East for both playoff and lottery positioning.
These two tip off at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Orlando, despite boasting a modest 5-7 record on the year, has a bit of momentum on its side. The team has won three of its last four and is coming off a win over the woeful Washington Wizards, 117-108.
Against the Knicks, the goal will be to hone in on scoring presences like Tim Hardaway Jr.
Before the year began, THJ went to his coaches and asked what he can do to become a superstar. Although it will be difficult for the 26-year-old to start earning household status as a star player, he’s done it so far on the court, boosting his numbers to 24.3 points per game—an easy career high.
If Orlando can contain the guard, New York won’t have many other options when it comes to consistent scoring.
The Knicks’ next-best scorer is center Ends Kanter at just under 15-and-a-half points per game.

As evidenced by the information above, the Knicks could benefit from a true second scorer on the perimeter. That’s been the downside of Hardaway taking over the primary scoring role—it’s made it difficult for other guards and wings to contribute at a high level.
One option here is Damyean Dotson. The 24-year -old is third on the team in scoring ahead of Alonzo Trier, Trey Burk and Mario Hezonja.
Dotson isn’t yet a household name, but is someone who can score in bunches when called upon.
The Knicks may need him to do just that if Orlando locks down Hardaway.

Free Orlando Magic vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction:
The Knicks aren’t world-beaters by any mean, but neither are the Magic, and home-court advantage should make a difference here.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: New York Knicks ATS
Don’t expect this to be a blowout by any means, but with the spread set at just a single point, a win both straight up and ATS should be in the cards for the Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
