NBA Betting Pick and Prediction: New York Knicks vs. Phoenix Suns

November 26, 2023

The Phoenix Suns will travel to New York, New York to face the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Sunday evening with tip-off scheduled for 6:00 PM ET, and the game will air on the MSG channel.

Phoenix started the season off in disastrous fashion as they started with a record of 2-4, however, since that start they have won eight of their last ten games and are on a six-game winning streak which is the longest current winning streak in the league and currently in 4th place in the Western Conference with a record of 10-6. The offense has flexed its muscles during the winning streak as they are averaging 126.17 points per game during their current streak which has also improved their season average to 117.19 points per game which ranks 7th in the NBA. Kevin Durant has played a pivotal role in the success the Suns have had during their winning streak as he is averaging 34.2 points per game, however, he missed the game against the Grizzlies and is a game-time decision for the game against the Knicks on Sunday with a foot injury. The Phoenix Suns will look to extend their winning streak to seven games when they travel to face the New York Knicks.

Like the Phoenix Suns, the New York Knicks have been one of the best teams in their conference as they enter this game in 5th place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 9-6 and have won four of their last five games including Friday’s 100-98 win at home against the Miami Heat. New York likes to play at a slower pace compared to the average pace in the NBA which has made them one of the lowest-scoring teams in the league with an average of 109.47 points per game which is the 4th fewest while also being one of the best scoring defenses as they are allowing the 2nd fewest points per game with an average of 105.27 points per game. The defense will face a tough test on Sunday as they will be facing one of the highest-scoring teams in the NBA when they host the Phoenix Suns on Sunday evening.

The Suns are 8-2 ATS in the last ten while the Knicks are 2-1 ATS in the last three games in the series.

Phoenix has dominated the series against New York as they have won nine of the previous ten meetings. The Suns also enter this game as one of the hottest teams in the NBA as they have won six games in a row. I look for those trends to continue in this matchup which is why I am taking the moneyline for the Phoenix Suns at +122 when they travel to face the New York Knicks on Sunday evening.
