The Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks are neck-and-neck in the Eastern Conference, with this game possibly having huge implications on their end-of-season standings. The Brooklyn Nets have fallen off since the All-Star break, now sitting sixth in the East after going 2-8 over their last 10 games. The New York Knicks, on the other hand, have climbed to fifth in the East after going 8-2 over their last 10 games.

The Brooklyn Nets have been an efficient offensive team through this season, averaging 113.8 points per game (17th in the NBA) on 50.0% shooting from the field (2nd in the NBA) and 38.8% from three-point range (2nd in the NBA). However, over Brooklyn's last 10 games, they've struggled from the field, shooting just 45.4% overall and 36.3% from three-point range. The New York Knicks challenge teams with their incredible defence, which holds opponents to 111.9 points per game (7th in the NBA) on 45.4% shooting from the field (3rd in the NBA) and 34.4% from three-point range. The Knicks are looking to build off of a 109-94 win over the Celtics in their last game, where they held the Eastern Conference challengers to just 21.4% shooting from three-point range.

We're taking the Knicks in this matchup, and it isn't just because of their excellent form. The Brooklyn Nets are on a downward trend, and that comes with losing their two star players and their third star to injury. The Knicks, on the other hand, are on a roll, and their defence should keep the struggling Nets at bay.

Total: O/U 222.5 (-110) @ DraftKings Sportsbook

The Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks will combine for what is expected to be a classic offense-defense matchup. On the season, the Brooklyn Nets are combining for 226.7 points per game on a plus-0.9 point differential. The New York Knicks are combining for 226.6 points per game on a plus-2.8 point differential.

The Brooklyn Nets have struggled in their last five games, averaging 224.8 points per game on a minus-11.2 point differential as their offence hasn't been competitive.The Knicks have been on an opposite trend, averaging a combined 222.8 points per game on a plus-16.4 point differential. Where Brooklyn's offence has been falling, New York's defence has been thriving.

It's always an exciting matchup when the Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks face off. Out of their last three meetings this season, they've cleared 222.5 twice. We're expecting these teams to clear 222.5 once again, as New York's offence is on a good trend to prop up this point total.
