The NBA brings more action on Thursday as the New York Knicks will clash with the Washington Wizards.
The Knicks are heading into this game after a 108-106 home loss at the hands of the 76ers. While the Wizards lost in overtime at home against the Raptors with a score of 140-138.
New York Knicks Form
The Knicks are heading into this game after suffering their 4th defeat in a row. Moreover, they have lost 12 of their last 13 games. Also, the Knicks are on the 13th spot in the Eastern Conference. It will be almost impossible to get a playoff spot this season.
On the bright side, Kevin Knox scored 31 points and seven boards in the loss against Philadelphia.
On the offensive side of the game, the Knicks are placed on the 23rd spot in the league in scoring. Also, their average stands at 107.3 points per game. Moreover, the Knicks have 44.7 boards per game and 19.9 assists per night. Furthermore, their main man is Tim Hardaway Jr. as he leads the team with 19.8 points per contest.
Washington Wizards Form
The Wizards are heading into this game after an overtime loss against the Raptors. They were unlucky to lose the game as they showed some really good basketball.
The Wizards led by two in the final 20 seconds. However, they ended up on the losing side in the closing moments.
Bradley Beal had an awesome game as he led Wizards with 43 points, 10 rebounds and 15 assists.
On the offensive side of the game, the Wizards are placed on the 8th spot in the league in scoring with 113.5 points per game. Moreover, they have an average of 40.9 boards per game combined with 25.5 assists per game.
The Knicks are playing poorly in the last couple of months, to say the least. Moreover, their focus is now the rebuilding process with the young players that they have.
On the other side, the Wizards are playing some good basketball lately. Also, they were unlucky to lose against the Raptors in their last game. Therefore, I expect a dominant win for Washington in this one. Go for the Wizards.
