Shorthanded Knicks travels to Indiana tonight in a early night game. Shorthanded Knicks because they are simply playing without their 2 best players. And they are their best player by far, offensively mostly the most reliable guys.
It's going to be a tough stretch of games for NY without them and against a good Indiana side , playing confident and good basketball , specially at home , I expect this one to be a easy win for Indiana.
Handicap -10 is my pick here. I think even if the game stays close , NY have no one to rely to in the 4th quarter and that what happened against Orlando (at home). Close game but no closer and some ugly basketball in the last 5 mins of the game.
On the road it's going to be even tougher for this basketball club and that can be a game that they intentionally throw away in a hard back 2 back match.
