The Knicks have not been able to string together more than three wins in a row. When they get into a good rhythm they lose and have to start all over again. But this is the virtue of this team, it gets up and wins again, although it does not maintain that inertia.
At the moment they are on tour. They started Nov. 15 against the Jazz and beat them 111-118, tied their second win away from home vs. Nuggets in a tight 103-106 win, but that inconsistency showed and they lost to the Warriors in California 111-101, and now they close this tour against a Thunder that struggles and is strong at home.
They have lost the last three games against Oklahoma. Their last win against the Thunder was on March 13, 2021, when the Big Apple beat Mark Daigenault’s team 119-97.
Betting on the Oklahoma City Thunder
- Regular Season Record:7-9
- Spread of BetMGM: -2.5
- Moneyline from BetMGM: +1.78
- BetMGM Over/Under: 230.5
For their part, the Thunder begin a three-game homestand after four consecutive visits in which they have won two games and lost two, one of them at Madison Square Garden against the Knicks 132-145.
Obviously, the idea is to prevent the New Yorkers from taking the loss at home. As mentioned, Oklahoma is strong at home, having won four, but lost three games. Yes, they play better on their home floor, but not to say, “what a brute the ’96 Bulls are.”
Their last game was a tough loss to the Grizzlies 110-121. No player was up to the task of the Memphis players, who dominated the entire game at will. Josh Giddey tried, but could only contribute 20 points. Returning home will be good for them, but the Knicks are a tough opponent.
New York is hungry for revenge and needs to win, and that gives a special flavor to the game to be played at the Paycom Center. The Knicks bring a negative inertia on the road and the Thunder return home. Momentum matters, which is why we think Oklahoma will come out on top in this one.
Besides, the Thunder can’t string together two bad games. The last one against Memphis was a tear, and being on their home turf will serve to lick the wounds. They can’t afford another loss because that would cause them to drop in the West, and they are currently chasing the Warriors who have a similar record, so winning would help them pass them.
