Nets vs. Knicks Game Info

  • Date: Saturday, January 28, 2023
  • Time: 5:30 PM ET
  • Venue: Barclays Center -- Brooklyn, New York
  • Coverage: ABC

Saturday, Jan. 28's NBA schedule includes a battle in the Empire State as the Brooklyn Nets (29-19) hist the New York Knicks (27-23).

The Nets are just 2-6 in their last eight games due to a growing injury list, most recently falling 130-122 to the Detroit Pistons on Thursday. Meanwhile, the Knicks have a ton of momentum on their side after picking up a 120-117 overtime win over the Eastern Conference-leading Boston Celtics.

Can the Nets reverse their fortunes against their crosstown rivals? Or will the Knicks figure out a way to nab their third consecutive victory?

Nets vs. Knicks Prediction & Pick

There's a good chance that the Nets will be shorthanded, once again, on Saturday. Kevin Durant is still sidelined for two weeks with his knee injury while Ben Simmons (knee), T.J. Warren (shin) and Day'Ron Sharpe (back) are all questionable to face the Knicks.

With the Nets clearly at less than 100% and struggling to perform well, I see the Knicks pulling off an upset tonight. It also helps that New York is 12-3 ATS in its last 15 road games, whereas Brooklyn has failed to cover the spread in 14 of its last 20 clashes with the Knicks.

With momentum on their side following the huge win over the Celtics, the Knicks are in a good place to shock the Nets at Barclays Center.

Final Score Prediction: Knicks: 115 | Nets: 112

Nets vs. Knicks Best Bet

I recommend backing the Knicks as +1.5 underdogs as the best bet tonight. As mentioned above, the Knicks have covered the spread in 80% of their last 15 road games. They're also 16-4 ATS in their last 20 games against the Nets, who have failed to cover in six of their last nine outings.

The Knicks are the better team at the moment and have what it takes to further add to the Nets' increasing woes.

Bet: Knicks +1.5 (-108)
