Free NBA Pick:
New York G Kemba Walker (knee) has missed nine straight games and is unlikely to suit up for this contest. These two teams rank in the bottom half of the league in offensive efficiency, so the under is my lean on the total. The stronger play is on New York to win at home. Final Score Prediction, New York Knicks win 108-103.
