Knicks Look To Take Advantage Of Lowly Bobcats

Posted by Craig Parsons on 3/26/2013 6:47:56 PM

The New York Knicks are in a fight for the second spot in the Eastern Conference standings. A visit from the worst team in the NBA should help their cause. The Knicks will continue their big for the second seed in the East and home court advantage through at least the first two-playoff rounds when they host the Charlotte Bobcats on Friday. New York had won four-straight online betting games heading in to Tuesday’s meeting with the Boston Celtics, and need to continue to find a way to win games in order to beat out the Indiana Pacers for that No. 2 spot behind the Miami Heat.

With just six wins in 35 tries as the visiting team this season, the Bobcats haven’t exactly been a tough road play. Charlotte did keep it close at home in the first meeting between these teams, actually leading until a buzzer-beating three-point shot from JR Smith in a 100-98 loss to the Knicks in early December.

Kemba Walker was a monster in that game, scoring a game-high 25 points and dishing out 11 assists before watching a last-second lead slip away at the buzzer. That is the perfect example of how things have gone for the Bobcats this season, as even when they have put up a fight they have struggled to close out games. Walker is averaging 17.3 points per game and five assists, but he hasn’t had nearly enough help as Charlotte ranks near the bottom of the NBA in scoring and defensive efficiency.

Carmelo Anthony had suffered a lacerated thumb in that win over the Bobcats, watching from the bench as Smith hit that game-winning shot. Anthony scored 20 of his 23 points in the first half, and it may have been a little wider of a margin had he played the entire game. The Knicks shot a season-low 29.8-percent from beyond 15 feet in that win, and must do a better job from the field with Tyson Chandler and Amar’e Stoudamire both likely watching from the sideline. Anthony has looked good since returning from injury, but perhaps the biggest key to New York’s sports betting success this season is a defense that ranks in the top-10.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

An injury to Anthony helped keep the first game between these teams close, but don’t expect a similar result this time around with a healthy Melo and the Knicks holding home court advantage. Charlotte has been particularly bad as the visiting team this season, and will be in tough to keep this game close with the Knicks fighting for that No. 2 seed.
