Orlando Magic looks quite a definite favorite. The Magic are on the 8th line with a pretty good margin before the 9th position. It is worth noting that Orlando has the best defense in the League – 104.7 points conceded per game. Steve Clifford’s team on the eve managed to interrupt their series of five defeats, against Charlotte.
Orlando have injured players who will miss this match: D.J. Augustin, Al-Farouq Aminu, Jonathan Isaac
New York Knicks traditionally lives in the very basement of the Eastern Conference standings. The Knicks occupy an intermediate 13th line, which looks absolutely fair and logical result. In addition, they did not help even the change of coach during the season. They have one of the worst differences between scored and missed points in the League – minus 7 points on average per match. In addition, at home they won only 7 out of 25 matches.
New York have injured players for this match: Marcus Morris, RJ Barrett
Bet Analysis & Prediction
The Knicks has an attack from the top 3 worst in the NBA – 103.8 points per match. In the current championship, New York won 28% of home games. Orlando looks an order of magnitude stronger than his opponent. Even in the away match, the team must beat their opponent.
