The New York Knicks travel to Phoenix to take on the Suns. This is the second time these teams face off this season, the Suns outscored the Knicks 118-97 in New York.

The Knicks have lost 6 games in a row and are 12-18 on the road this season. The Knicks are 9-20 against opponents over .500. They're coming from a loss against the 76ers. Barrett contributed 30 points (10-23 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 7-8 FT), six rebounds and seven assists over 40 minutes.

Julius Randle is shooting 41.5% and averaging 19.7 points for the Knicks. Evan Fournier is averaging 14.4 points for New York. 

In their last 10 games the Knicks are 1-9, averaging 109.9 points, 47.5 rebounds, 22.3 assists, 6.4 steals and 5.3 blocks per game while shooting 41.7% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 119.4 points.

PHOENIX SUNS

The Suns are 27-7 at home and are first in the Western Conference with a 50-12 record overall, the best in the league. The are coming from a win against the Trail Blazers. Even with Booker and Paul out the Suns destroyed the Blazers 120-90.

BETTING TRENDS

New York are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games.

New York are 1-8 SU in their last 9 games on the road.

Phoenix are 17-3 SU in their last 20 games.

Phoenix are 10-2 SU in their last 12 games at home.

Prediction

The Knicks have lost 8 of their last 9 games on the road and are currently on a 6 game losing streak and they lost vs Suns by 21 points at home but it's neccesary to say that Booker scored 32 pts and Paul had 14 pts. I don't think this game will be a blowout and even with the awful Knicks record call me crazy but I think they can cover on this one. Phoenix are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games.

PICK: Knicks +6.5 (-110)
