Bet Tonight's NBA Action

The Knicks are having a rough go of things at the moment, losing back-to-back games and four of their last five overall. In their 107-105 loss to the Suns on Saturday, Kristaps Porzingis hit 7-of-13 shots and scored 14 points while Joakim Noah returned to action but failed to score a single point. He did have 15 rebounds, however.

The Pacers are also coming off back-to-back losses at the Lakers and at the Jazz, and have lost in three of their last five games. Monta Ellis scored 15 points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-poiners in 33 minutes in the loss to Utah, while Paul George was ejected for arguing with a ref. Granted, he fouled out anyway, so the ejection didn't hurt his playing time.
