Wizards vs NY Knicks by AlexP
Now Knicks have been struggling to score for the hole season as there offense is ranked 29th in the league with 93.1. Since Carmelos abcense, it has been even worse and they havend covered this spread in last 5 games, 79, 78, 81, 82 and last road match against the Grizzlies 83.
Wizards are known for well defense play and at home they are ranked 4th as they hold opponents down to 97p.
Knicks just traded J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert to the Cavaliers, which realy leaves them no team leader left as Carmelo, Amare are out for tonight. Carmelo could miss the rest of the season because of his knee injury, Derrick Fisher so indicated, but he does not know when it could happen. He leaves some room for hope, but it is clear that the season for the Knicks is over. Bargnani is out as well, but he didnt make any important impact on his return.
There is no play maker for the Knicks, and Calderon can't be scoring 3p all night long. Quincy Ace scored 19p against the Grizzlies, but he was 7/8 from the field and that wont happen every game.
Even if Washington will most likely play with bench in 4th, i still think that New York wont cover this p spread set by 87.
