Portland is off to a good start to the season but they have done most of their damage at home this season, on their current road trip they are only 1-2 and this is the first of a back to back.
The Knicks have lost five in a row heading into this one. It is going to take a much better effort than they have been giving to get Portland to stumble. They do not match up well with the Blazers.
Portland Trail Blazers
The Blazers might not be much improved this season but they have the stuff to get back to the playoffs – primarily the duo of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum, who scored 65 in their last game, a win over Washington.
Jusuf Nurkic is a a wonderfully diverse center, getting him from Denver looks like a steal. They might call him the Bosnian Beast but I like his all around game. He makes plays for other and is just smart with the basketball. .
With the Knicks down and a fun game against Milwaukee on deck the Blazers could be looking ahead though I doubt enough to cost them this one. It might affect the spread though depending on how big the number is.
New York Knicks
Given the state of the team there is no reason not to tinker and see if they can find something. The latest effort in that regard has been bringing in Enes Kanter off the bench. In any role he seems to do just fine. He scores and he rebounds.
Speaking of scoring the Knicks got 31 points each from both Tim Hardaway and Trey Burke in their last game. All season long Hardaway has been filling it up but it was nice to see that kind of output from Burke. Perhaps he is accepting his inner Isaiah Thomas.
Beyond those three players only Emmanual Mudiay topped double figures in their recent blow out loss to Orlando. Mudiay has not been very good since coming into the league with Denver but is getting some run with New York. He is athletic at least.
Rookie Kevin Know has been very consistent so far. You can see the shooting stroke and he looks like he could be a contributor but I wonder if he might be like Glen Rice, you just can’t get anything else out of him if he is not making those threes.
New York is not going to figure out much about their team until Kristaps is back into the lineup in the New Year. Its just the way it is with this group this season.

Free Portland Trail Blazers vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction:
Kind of a low total and a low spread in this one. I hope the Balzers are not planning to rest up for Milwaukee thinking this one is a gimme, though it may be.
I like the visitors a lot in this. They should be able to get the shots they want and can play at any pacce and be successful against New York.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Trail Blazers -7
We might get another outburst from Hardaway or Burke, maybe even both, but it won’t be enough to bring down Portland.
