Knicks Continue to Falter on the Road

The Toronto Raptors put up a season high in points against the Brooklyn Nets on Friday, and Canada’s lone NBA club will look to knock off another squad from the Big Apple when the New York Knicks travel north for a Sunday matchup. Sportsbooks opened the Raps as 9.5-point favorites with a total of 217.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Knicks' last three games.
  • The Raptors are 14-3 SU in their last 17 games in January.
  • The Knicks are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games against the Raptors.

The big question in this game will be surrounding the status of Knicks Latvian sensation Kristaps Porzingis. The forward did not play on Thursday when the Knicks defeated the Chicago Bulls 104-89 as he had been battling a sore left Achilles tendon. It was the fourth game the big man missed due to the injury.

Toronto trailed the woeful Brooklyn Nets by one point late in the third quarter before going on a 28-7 run to leave the building with a 132-113 victory. The Dinos played without Patrick Patterson in that game, which caused Lucas Nogueira to make his third start at power forward. The Brazilian had 10 rebounds against the Knicks in the first meeting between the teams on November 12, when the Raptors topped New York 118-107.

New York has been downright brutal when playing away from Madison Square Garden. The Knickerbockers are 1-8 SU in their last nine road games.
