LeBron James and the Cavaliers are already looking forward to a rematch with Kobe Bryant and the Lakers this Sunday. Grab the Knicks and the points at home in New York.
Yes, the Cavs have been the surprise team in the league this season and LeBron James is having an MVP career year. But when a new coach comes in and turns a program around 180 degrees during the first-half of a season, we must stand up and take notice.
That’s what Mike D’Antoni has done for the Knicks, a team that has gone from the slums to a middle-class neighborhood in the Eastern Conference since his arrival from Phoenix this season. New York has never shied away from taking points in this series, going 18-9-4 ATS, including 4-0-1 against an unrested Cleveland squad.
With King James perhaps more concerned with a revenge rematch against Kobe and the Lakers from a season-worst, 105-88 beating up next, we’ll bite into the Big Apple. Take the points with New York.
Free Pick: Knicks +6 (-110)
