The Knicks have lost three straight — and five of their last seven — after getting knocked off by the Nuggets 113-99 on Saturday.

Pick ATS: Spurs +2.5 (-110)
San Antonio, against all odds, almost mounted a successful comeback against the Suns last night after chipping away at a 16-point deficit. While the game only ended in a four-point loss, it was impressive from the Texas side as they faced off against arguably the hottest team in the league. That’s after coming off a four-game winning streak, and with momentum on their side they’ll look to turn that into a bounce back win.
The Knicks have one of the lower-rated defenses in the league and have lost five of their last seven as they’ve hit a rough patch. Not to mention, the Spurs have covered the spread in six of their last seven games, and are 5-2 ATS in their last seven contests at home. Pick the Spurs to cover, whether they end up actually winning or not.
Over/Under: Under 211 (-105)
The Knicks have played 10 games on the road this season, and are 3-7 against the point total, only going over 30 percent of the time. San Antonio is 6-6-1 up against the total when playing after a loss, and have also only allowed an average of 99.3 points from their opponents through their last three contests. Expect this to be a lower-scoring affair and take the under as the play in San Antonio.
