The New York Knicks look to win their 4th straight as they host the Los Angeles Lakers they have lost nine in a row to. BetDSI Sportsbook current live betting lines display the Lakers as -175 favorites giving up 4 points to the Knicks.
The Los Angeles Lakers won a tough fought 88-87 victory on the road yesterday against the red hot Boston Celtics. They did not do it in pretty fashion however shooting 39.6% from the floor and hitting only 1 out of 15 three point attempts. LA hitting 15 of their 20 free throws is really what helped put them over the top yesterday against Boston.
Kobe Bryant led the game in scoring with 27 points while making 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Pau Gasol was not far behind him with 25 points, 14 rebounds, and 3 assists. Andrew Bynum is continuing to play great with 16 pounds and game leading 17 rebounds. The Lakers imposed their rebounding dominance against Boston by out rebounding them 55-45.
The New York Knicks have won 3 straight while getting great play from unheard of PG Jeremy Lin. An undrafted player out of Harvard has had a chance to shine with Knicks stars out due to injury, and shine he has. Jeremy has put up 25.3 points and 8.3 assists per game average which is a far cry from his usual 2 minutes 2 point performances.
The other day the Knicks beat the Washington Wizards on the road 107-93. Jeremy Lin on the third game of his rocket to stardom had 23 points and 10 assists. Center Tyson Chandler led New York in scoring with 25 points and also led the game with 11 rebounds. Five players total scored double digit points for the Knicks against Washington.
NBA Betting Prediction: This is an intriguing matchup for the New York Knicks who have been playing great and have new confidence with a out of no where PG who has been playing like a star. The LA Lakers have been struggling all year on the road but just recently won yesterday on the road against the Celtics bringing their road record to 4-12. I look for the New York Knicks to surprise the LA Lakers here who will be on the road once again.
