New York Knicks vs Washington Wizards Preview

If quizzed in pre-season on how teams would fare through 40-45 games this term, you'd probably have the Wizards and Knicks switching records. 

Tom Thibodeau's men improved their home record to 13-8 with a 131-113 win overnight as first-time All-Star PF Julius Randle took charge with 37 points - including seven threes - while RJ Barrett (21 pts), Alec Burks (20 pts) and Mitchell Robinson's double-double (16 pts, 12 rebs, three blocks) were decisive. 

Bradley Beal is averaging career-highs in points (31.8), rebounds (5.1), FT% (90.2) and FG% (48.8), but between him and perennial All-Star backcourt partner Russell Westbrook, could only combine for 36 points (9-of-29).

The duo was scoreless from the three-point range, and half of their 36 was from the free-throw line, which is far from an ideal tally against a Knicks team who allow just 104.8 points per game against them on average this term.

Randle is shooting a career-high 42.8% from three this season, though the seven-year pro had only scored five or more three-pointers in a game twice before this matchup – so expect a production drop-off here.

New York Knicks vs Washington Wizards Betting Tips 

ESPN's BPI shares my view, and this should be a more competitive clash down the stretch than their meeting overnight, one essentially over by half-time considering the sheer contrast in the collective shooting. 

The Knicks are narrow favourites (52.4%) despite missing keyguards in Austin Rivers (personal) and Derrick Rose (COVID-19), who average a combined 20 points and 6.5 assists this term, an x-factor somewhat balanced out by Davis Bertans' calf injury amid trade speculation over the Latvian's future in Washington.
