New York Knicks vs Brooklyn Nets
New York Knicks - Brooklyn Nets
These two teams have met on 30th of October and the Knicks won 115 - 96.
Since then both teams went through ups and downs, and now we find these two next one to another in the Eastern Conference rankings, with New York coming with a 4-4 record in the past 8 and Brooklyn with a 1-7.
The Knicks have been smacked two days ago by a revenge driven Celtics team which happens to be on a up going trend.
In the meantime, the Nets went through some epic situations recently. # days ago the led Oklahoma by 20 early in the fourth quarter only to lose in the final seconds. Then, yesterday, they took on the wire another big team, the East's leader, Toronto. And they beat the Raptors in overtime. Quite challenging times, mentally, for these Nets.
Now, those of you who follow me might remember that the last time they have played back-to-back with overtime in the first leg, I cashed against them, in the second leg, despite their opponents (Washington) were not playing convincingly at that time.
It's exactly what I intend to do once again.
The Knicks have in coach Fizdale a guy who demands a strong physical presence and that is what we've seen as of late, especially in Madison Square Garden, where they've covered ATS in 3 out of their last 4 games. And the kind of physical toughness that coach Fizdale demands I find it likely to be too much for the ponetlially tired (phisically and mentally) Nets. Which Nets have lost 12 out of their last 15 and had no back to back wins in the past 4 weeks..
Do you think the Nets have enough gas in the tank to win two nights in a row?
Let's go green!
