New York Knicks vs Houston Rockets - NBA Picks OF The Day 12/31

James Harden Of The Houston Rockets

Both teams are coming off games last night but with the Knicks possible without their best defender and the Rockets surging right now, look for the over to cash for your NBA Picks.

Knicks vs. Rockets

Houston put up 140 points on the Clippers last night and after a night of getting to sleep in their own beds, I see them doing similar things to the Knicks. New York is allowing nearly 110 points per 100 possessions this season and even though both teams are coming off the back to back, the Rockets have momentum, offense and even defense on their side.

They also have a guy named James Harden. It looks like Courtney Lee is going to miss Saturday's game after sitting out last night and if he misses, the Knicks have no one to check Harden.

On top of that, the Knicks don't mind playing fast and they have given up some points on the road lately. Over their last seven road games, the Knicks have allowed almost 109 points per game and the Rockets are averaging over 125 points per game in their last five. Considering these two teams are a combined 8-4 cashing the over on no rest, I like it here despite the lofty NBA Odds of 222.
