The New York Knicks welcome the Utah Jazz tonight to Madison Square Garden in New York's first contest after the NBA Trade Deadline. A deadline that saw them acquire veteran versatile wing Josh Hart, reuniting him with college teammate Jalen Brunson.

Utah comes in as losers of three of their last five games, while the Knicks have won three of their last five.

Knicks vs. Jazz Prediction & Pick

Both teams are on the second night of a back-to-back, and both are traveling from outside New York. Given both of those similar circumstances, I expect the Garden crowd to give the Knicks that extra jolt out of the gate. The Knicks have been fantastic to open games this season, but closing them out has been an entirely different story.

The Knicks should get out to an early lead and have control of much of the game, but expect the Jazz to make second-half adjustments and bring this one close before losing, but covering the spread.

Prediction: Jazz 108 | Knicks 112

Knicks vs. Jazz Best Bet

The Jazz traded away their veteran point guard Mike Conley at the deadline in a huge deal, bringing them back more draft assets, but this leaves them without an experienced defender on Jalen Brunson. The Knicks' star guard has been absolutely insane of late. Since January 2, Brunson has averaged almost 29 points per game (28.8). That average gets bumped up to almost 31 points per game over his last five contests (30.8).

I'll take Brunson to continue this hot streak tonight against a young Jazz team now without their veteran floor general on the floor or in the locker room.

Bet Jalen Brunson Over 25.5 Points
