New York Knicks – Brooklyn Nets Jan 25 Prediction
Another edition of the Battle of New York goes down on Friday as the Knicks travel from Manhattan across town to Brooklyn to face off with the Nets. This is also a battle of two teams headed in totally opposite directions.
Brooklyn is the one headed in the right direction. They’ve won four-straight games, and eight out of their last ten. They are doing it still without injured leading scorer Caris LeVert (D’Angelo Russell has since supplanted him as the team’s leading point getter). A big part of their success stems from their long-range marksmanship – they are fifth in the NBA in three’s made.
The Knicks, meanwhile, are a sinking ship, losers of six-straight and nine out of their last ten. Only the woeful Cleveland Cavaliers are keeping the Knickerbockers from residing in the cellar of the Eastern Conference. A big reason for their struggles is due to the continued absence of star Kristaps Porzingis, who’s been out all year rehabbing his injured knee.
This will be the teams’ last meeting of the season, with Brooklyn winning two out of the first three.
