Both teams are kind of easing into the season. Not too great and not too bad thus far. Utah has played 1 more game than New York.
In their last 10 meetings, New York has won 7 and covered in 8. They are small home favourites.
Utah is currently 4th in their division, with a record of 3-3. They are doing okay but lost their last game before starting a significant road trip in New York.
The Jazz are 2nd in NBA for giving up points per game, continuing the stingy defensive reputation they established last season.
They are still struggling on offense though, they are second last. Injuries have hurt on that side as Gordon Hayward has yet to play a minute this season.
Without Hayward new addition George Hill has been getting plenty of shots and averaging 20ppg. He is a complimentary player though and I don’t seen him keeping that up.
Gordon Hayward is set to start in this game, making his season debut after recovering from a broken finger. He and the ever developing Rodney Hood make the Jazz difficult to guard on the wing.
One of those players will likely have to spend a significant amount of time checking Carmelo Anthony. My guess is that it will be Hood as they ease Hayward into the lineup.
This is the start to a pivotal trip for the Jazz who are looking to break out in the West.
New York Knicks
The Knicks, even with their “super team” have started their season a little rough, with a record of 2-3. Their record at home is 1-1, while their away record is 1-2.
They are coming off a win though, at Chicago. Both of their former Bulls, Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah had strong games in what was an emotional contest for sure.
Carmelo Anthony remains the star of the offense for this team so far, scoring an average of 21.8 points. That is despite the fact that he is not shooting well, especially from three point land – less than 30%.
Rose and Noah are contributors but they cannot sustain a high level of performance.
Thankfully bringing in the vets does not seem to have disrupted the development of Kristaps Porzingis. He had a season high 27 in the win against Chicago.

Free Utah Jazz vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction:
The Knicks deserve to be home favourites but this could also be a letdown spot. They are not going to be a consistent team this season and the Jazz are going to make them work for it, even at home.
I am excited to see the Jazz inch closer to full strength.
