The visiting Jazz enter this contest having won their last four games and have a 7-3 overall record over their last 10. They currently sit in the No. 7 seed as of this writing at 7:00 p/m/ ET on Tuesday, March 19.
The home team Knicks enter this contest having lost their last outing and having lost nine of their last 10 overall. They sit in the final and 15th spot out East, and they own the league’s worst record at 14-57 overall.
The Jazz have been tough to figure out this season. They entered the year fresh off their surprising postseason run that saw them take down Paul George, Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony, Steven Adams and the favored Oklahoma City Thunder, and many believed their mix of offensive efficiency and defensive…well…eliteness would put them a step closer to the Golden State Warriors a year or two sooner than expected.
But then, the offense became inefficient and Donovan Mitchell encountered a sophomore slump.
Since then, Mitchell has started to turn things around and the team currently has an 11-of-16 game winning streak going on, and the Jazz also pulled off a nine wins-in-10-outings stretch between Jan. 9 and Jan. 27.
The catch in all of that is that the team really needs home-court advantage in the first round if it hopes to win a seven-game series. Although that’s not mathematically impossible, it’s also unlikely.
But as far as Utah is concerned, “not mathematically impossible” is good enough.
They currently sit just two games back from the No. 4 seed Portland Trail Blazers and will be looking at a game against a (very) inferior opponent as an opportunity to improve its chances.
New York Knicks
Two games ago, the New York Knicks got themselves a nice win over LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers, 124-123, courtesy of a game-saving block via (of all people) Mario Hezonja on The King himself.
One game later, New York fell on the road to the Toronto Raptors by 36 points, 128-92.
That pretty much sums up the Knicks’ season right there. Every time the team can find the slightest thing to be happy about (and let’s not kid ourselves, beating LeBron and the Not-So-SuperLakers at this point qualifies for nothing more than a “slight thing to be happy about”), they’re brought back down to reality very quickly.
That, however, is not the worst recipe for the Knicks at the moment. Finding silver linings in a bad year can help retain or build a locker room culture while ultimately improving lottery positioning.
This Knicks team is currently 2.5 games “ahead” of the Phoenix Suns for the league’s worst record—and best spot to be in to draft projected No. 1 pick Zion Williamson (or trade him for, I don’t know, Anthony Davis)—and they’ll be looking to “improve” that with this one.

Free Utah Jazz vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction: Jazz get a rare offensive explosion.
The Jazz typically keep the score low and love winning grind-it-out style games with their defense. But up against New York, who is a bottom-five defense, the Jazz should get a good showing on the scoring end.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: UTAH ATS
Because the Jazz are a low-scoring unit, their ATS record is far from impressive despite their straight-up record. In fact, in their last 27 games, the Jazz are just 4-23 ATS against NY.
But in this rare instance, history doesn’t apply. Utah gets a big win against a bad team with a bad defense.
