The New York Knicks have been rolling as of late but the schedule has been pretty light with teams like the Blazers, Wizards, Embiid-less Sixers, and Bulls but you have to give them credit for winning the games that they are supposed to win. The Mavericks got destroyed by the Grizzlies in their last game and now their leading scorer Luka Doncic is going to be out tonight so it's not looking good for them. Let's get into our New York Knicks vs Dallas Mavericks prediction for tonight.
New York Knicks:
The Knicks are in strong form, carrying a 22-15 record and are currently on a five-game winning streak. Their most recent victory was a win over the Portland Trail Blazers.
With key players like Julius Randle and Jalen Brunson in good form, the Knicks' offensive capabilities are notable. However, they will be without Mitchell Robinson, who is out for the season with an ankle injury.
The Mavericks have a 22-16 record but are coming off a 17-point loss against the Memphis Grizzlies, which snapped their three-game winning streak.
Dallas will be without star player Luka Doncic due to an ankle injury, which significantly impacts their offensive strategy. Kyrie Irving is expected to lead the team in Doncic's absence, and his performance will be crucial for the Mavericks' success.
The Mavs also have a handful of guys who are dealing with injuries and are either our or a game time decision for this game.
The Knicks are currently favored to win this matchup, especially considering the absence of Luka Doncic for the Mavericks. The Knicks' current form and strong offense make them a formidable opponent.
Seeing how bad the Mavs played in their last game and the injuries they are dealing with has me liking the Knicks to extend their winning streak in this one.
