The Knicks have won a few games now. That is pretty unexpected but this has been the season for the unexpected in the NBA.
In this one they get the Jazz in a good spot too, as they will be taking on the Nets the night before.
There is no way the Knicks are good. Maybe, they aren’t the disaster we think they are though. Maybe.
Per the above, Utah is at Brooklyn on Tuesday night. They bring into that game a perfect 3-0 record on the road.
Utah is off to a solid start at 4-2 but there are some interesting notes in the details.
For starters, Mike Conley is leading the team in scoring at 20ppg. While that is a positive in terms of its speaks to Conley’s health it also begs the question of what is up with Donovan Mitchell. He shone so brightly in the bubble and in the playoffs but has struggled early in the season.
The Jazz made financial decisions on Rudy Gobert and Jordan Clarkson and so far both seem sound.
Clarkson is scoring 15ppg off the bench, making 50% from the field and almost 40% from three. He might be the best sixth man in the league so far.
Gobert was always going to be an interesting case for a big extension as centers tend to age poorly. He has his money now and is showing no signs of letting up averaging 14ppg, 13rpg and more than two blocks per contest.
Through a few weeks the Jazz have shown what continuity can do for a team early in the season.
New York Knicks
The Knicks have won four of their last five games heading into this one. It is the best stretch of results for the Knicks in recent memory.
If you thought it was just because they were playing the dregs of the league that is not the case. Their most recent win was against Atlanta and in this recent stretch, they also have wins over Milwaukee and Indiana.
Now onto the how. New York is second to last in the NBA in scoring. At times they look pathetic out there, especially when their starters are not in the game. On defense they are 6th though. Mitchell Robinson can be a difference-maker on that end and their guard Reggie Bullock and Elfrid Payton are making contributions too.
Not only are the Knicks winning but they are doing so shorthanded.
They have six guys on the injury report they were planning to get contributions from including top pick Obi Toppin, scoring guard Alec Burks and swift point guard Dennis Smith. Even missing Nerlens Noel hurts a team that wants to play defense.

Free Utah Jazz vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction:
The Knicks not being an embarrassment is good for the league. Per the intro they could be getting Utah in a good spot off a back to back against a good team.
Even though they might be winded I still like the Jazz here.
This one could be a grinder but the Jazz can win those kinds of games thanks to Gobert and good three-point shooting.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Jazz ATS
I am looking for the Jazz to be something like -5 in this spot. If it is a lot more I might have to flip my support.
