Monday, January 10th the San Antonio Spurs and New York Knicks will play for the second and final time this season. New York won the initial match on December 7th with a score of 129-109.
The Spurs are playing a back-to-back set that featured an overtime 119-121 loss to the Nets on the front sideSpu while the Knicks played Saturday in Boston splitting the home and home series as they fell 75-99 to the Celtics.
All-time the Spurs have the advantage of winning 56 of 98 contests. Last season the teams played twice with the teams each winning on their home court.
San Antonio Spurs
Seven Spurs scored in double-figures and gave the Nets everything they could handle in the afternoon match Sunday.
Lonnie Walker IV led the scoring for San Antonio with 25 points. Dejounte Murray (19 points, 12 assists, nine rebounds) came one rebound shy of a triple-double.
Jakob Poeltl filled up the stat sheet registering a double-double of 11 points and 12 rebounds (7 OR) plus three assists, three steals, and a block. Bryn Forbes offered 18 off the bench while Josh Primo (12), Keita Bates-Diop (10), and Josh Landale (10) also scored in double-digits.
San Antonio forced the Nets into 22 turnovers that led to 29 points.
A slew of Spurs entered the health and safety protocols late last week bringing their total to six including Thaddeus Young, Doug McDermott, Derrick White, Keldon Johnson, Tre Jones, and Devin Vassell with none expected back Monday. Zach Collins is still working his way back from offseason ankle surgery.
New York Knicks
I suppose after the Knicks won the front side of the home and home series coming back from 25 points down to beat the Celtics gives them a bit of leeway.
Then again, with both teams mired in mediocrity to come out of this series with an identical 19-21 record having made up no ground on each other let alone the teams above them feels like a wasted opportunity.
Tom Thibodeau was missing his secret Celtics weapon as Evan Fournier was sidelined by a thigh contusion. Although he’s averaging 13.5 points this season, in his three games against the Celtics he’s averaging 35 points.
The Knicks clearly left their offense in New York as Mitchell Robinson (5 of 5) and Immanuel Quickly (7 of 11) were the only players who shot with any semblance of efficiency as they scored 11 and 18 points.
Cumulatively everyone else shot 17 of 63 or 26.9 percent – – YIKES. Worse the bench scored six points all from Quentin Grimes.
Where is Derrick Rose (or even Kemba Walker) when you need them? The latter is questionable for Monday as are Fournier and Nerlens Noel (conditioning) but Rose won’t be back for a while.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Spurs are 7-3 in their last 10 meetings against each other
- The Spurs are 6-4 ATS in the last 10 matches against the Knicks
- The over/under is 6-4 in the teams last 10 head to head matches
Free San Antonio Spurs vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction
Although the Knicks have the rest advantage and the Spurs were pushed to overtime they don’t have to fly — just traveling from one borough to another in New York. The Spurs are finishing up their seven-game road trip and may have saved their best effort for last.
The Spurs sit just ahead of the Knicks for their defensive ranking (18th versus 19th) and rank 17th (vs. 24th) offensively so with the prospect of Fournier being out again I’m giving the edge to the Spurs to pull off the win at MSG.
