Betting Analysis for New York Knicks at Cleveland Cavaliers NBA
New York Knicks Betting Stats & Analysis
The Knicks took care of business at home against the injury-riddled Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday.
The star-studded duo of R.J. Barrett and Julius Randle combined for 52 points in the win. Barrett posted a 28/14/6 line, while Randle added a 24/9/5 line.
The Knicks were more efficient from beyond the arc than they were from the field on Sunday. They shot over 44 percent from deep while posting a 42.9 field goal percentage.
But New York handily defeated Los Angeles in the rebounding department in the game. The Knicks finished with 52 team boards while the Clippers had just 40.
New York will look to continue their strong rebounding ways while shooting efficiently as well on Monday.
The effort from both Randle and Barrett is a reminder that the Knicks can defeat any team when the duo is playing up to their ceiling. If New York can successfully build around these two stars down the road, they could realistically form a dynasty.
But for now, it is mainly just Barrett and Randle doing the heavy lifting in New York. They will try and lead the Knicks to an upset win over the Cavaliers in Cleveland.
Cleveland Cavaliers Betting Stats & Analysis
The Cavaliers did not blow out the Thunder at home like many believed they would, but they were able to earn the win despite a 29 point explosion from Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.
Darius Garland led Cleveland with 23 points and 11 assists. He was seemingly involved in almost every scoring opportunity, whether he was the one finding the bottom of the net or passing to the open shooter.
Evan Mobley scored 15 and grabbed 17 rebounds, while Jarrett Allen added 14 points and 13 boards. Their strong effort on the glass led Cleveland to a 54-41 rebounding advantage.
They needed all of those boards as well, given their lackluster 6-27 (22.2 percent) effort from beyond the arc.
The Cavs did not play their best basketball, but they were still able to emerge victorious against the lowly Oklahoma City Thunder.
But they will need to post a better all-around performance against this Knicks team which has played well as of late.
The trio of Garland, Mobley, and Allen is beginning to develop into one of the better big 3’s in the NBA. The three players balance out the roster, as Garland brings a mixture of shooting and passing while Mobley and Allen are monsters in the post.
The trio will look to lead the Cavaliers to the home win against the Knicks on Monday.
