The Knicks come into this game with an overall record of 14-10. The Knicks may not be the “Super Team” that Derrick Rose called them in the preseason but they are starting to pull things together, their bench started to playing better and better how season is going. They have gone 11-4 after a 3-6 start, and is now four games over .500 for the first time since the end of the 2012-13 season, which is the last time the Knicks made the playoffs. As a result of their chemistry improving, the Knicks have put together some impressive wins on their resume.
Anthony and Porzingis are each averaging more than 20 points per game while Rose is averaging 17. Back spasms knocked Rose out for a couple of games but he returned Sunday against the Lakers and exploded for 25 points.
The Suns while they are a better team than the record suggests, stand at 7-17 because their defense can’t finish games. As hot as the Knicks have been on the road, the Suns have been equally cold at home. They have only one home win in more than a month, that being a victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Nov. 30. The Suns suffered a heartbreaking overtime loss 119-120 to the New Orleans at home, and even the great Eric Bledsoe couldn’t help them to overcome their opponents. Bledsoe led Phoenix with 32 points, 8 assists, and 3 rebounds.
Despite the load of talent in Phoenix’s backcourt, this season has gotten off to a disappointing start.
I like the Knicks to get out early and take a quick lead. Their road play has improved and they are really starting to gel on offense.
