New York Knicks vs Oklahoma City Thunder Prediction, Preview, and Odds 12/27/2023

The Knicks and Thunder will meet for the first time this season. The Knicks are coming off of a strong win against the Bucks on Christmas day while the Thunder lost their last game but they've been off since Saturday so they come into this matchup with fresh legs. Let's get into our New York Knicks vs Oklahoma City Thunder prediction for tonight 12/27/23.

New York Knicks:
