The Nets saw a four-game straight up win streak snapped with Saturday’s 113-107 loss to the Phoenix Suns. The Knicks hit the hardwood aiming to tally consecutive victories for the first time in a month after claiming a 99-90 victory in Atlanta on Saturday.

With the backing of 60% of sports bettors, the Nets have climbed to 6.5-point favourites after opening at -6.0. The total has dipped slightly to 216.5 after opening at 217.0. However, the OVER has attracted a slight 53% majority of bets.

Tuesday night’s matchup marks the first of four meetings this season between these crosstown rivals. The Nets earned the outright win in each of their three clashes last season, and in seven of nine overall. However, Brooklyn has failed to dominate as expected when facing the Knicks, with last season’s three victories coming by a combined margin of just 14 points, capped by a narrow 114-12 win as 6-point home chalk back on April 5. Indeed, it has been New York that has held a clear upper hand at the sportsbooks in head-to-head action.

The Knicks have covered in six of their past seven dates with Brooklyn, including their past four visits to Brooklyn, and have gone 12-3 against the spread versus the Nets since the start of the 2017/2018 NBA campaign.

New York Knicks

The Knicks have struggled to find consistency since opening on a 5-1 run, going 6-8 in 14 outings since, including a 3-3 record in six road contests. Currently ranked 20th in the NBA with 106.3 points scored per game, the Knicks have mustered just 101.7 points per game during their current 14-game swoon. In addition to fueling a steady 11-2 run for the UNDER, recent offensive struggles have placed Knicks starters in the crosshairs.

Following a dismal debut with the Knicks this season, during which he has averaged just 11.7 points and 2.6 rebounds per game, Kemba Walker has been pulled from the rotation. Moving forward, Walker’s spot in the starting lineup is expected to be filled by another veteran Alec Burks, who made the best of his opportunity by contributing a team-high 23 points in Saturday’s win over the Hawks.

Brooklyn Nets

The Nets had no response as the Suns bolted to an early lead they would not relinquish in Saturday’s contest at Barclays Center. The loss has raised questions about this team’s prospects should they eventually face Phoenix in the NBA Finals. Saturday’s dismal performance also extended the Nets’ shaky record at the sportsbooks, where they have now covered just once in six contests, and gone 1-3-1 against the spread over their past five while favoured by five or more points.

The good news for Brooklyn is Kevin Durant’s return to form. The 33-year-old drained a season-high 39 points in Saturday’s win, and has averaged over 30 points in his past three appearances against New York.
