The Knicks and the Nets are going to do battle for the third time this year, and the games have been awfully competitive. This is the second time in just eight nights that the two will meet, and it comes on the heels of losses for both teams. The Knicks are hoping to pull six up in the Atlantic Division, a huge lead at this point in the campaign. These two teams can’t ever seem to get totally healthy against one another. Eight days ago, it was C Brook Lopez that was out of the fold for the Nets. Now, it is anyone’s guess as to whether this will be the night that F Carmelo Anthony is going to be back for the Knicks. Regardless, it’s difficult to ignore the fact that New York has struggled so much in this series this year in spite of the fact that it has one of the best records in basketball. The defense for the Nets just finds a way to slow down the Knicks and their run and gun attack. The hosts won’t get off 90 shots in this game, and as a result, an upset realistically could be in the cards, especially if Anthony isn’t going to get into the lineup.
Nets @ Knicks NBA Pick: Brooklyn Nets +7.5
