New York Knicks Fantasy Spin

According to Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer, the Spurs have "significant interest" in Kristaps Porzingis. While we've already many reports of other teams interested in signing Porzinigs and will see more between now and July, the reality is that he is a restricted free agent. As a result, the Knicks are in the driver's seat and can match any offer he receives this summer. It remains unlikely KP plays for any team other than the Knicks in the near future.

Golden State Warriors Fantasy Spin

Kevin Durant scored 29 points on 11-of-20 shooting with five rebounds, nine assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes against the Kings on Saturday. KD scored 20+ for the 13th straight game on Saturday. He's currently averaging a career-high in assists at 6.2 per game and is averaging 6.4 over his last five games. His rare combo of volume and efficiency is a big reason why he's a top-5 value in fantasy.

NBA Betting Trends

New York

The Knicks are just 5-11 against the spread in their last 16 games overall but have covered seven of their last nine games against Western Conference opponents.

Golden State

The Warriors are winless against the number in their last five home games and are just 2-7 ATS in their last nine games overall.

Prediction

The Warriors should light up the scoreboard tonight so I see value in the over. In the Warriors’ last 16 games versus an opponent with a losing record, the over is 11-5. In their last seven games when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game, the over is 6-1. On the other side, the over is 13-5 in the Knicks’ last 18 road games and is 24-11 in their last 35 games when they play on no rest.

Tuesday NBA Prediction: Knicks/Warriors over 232
