Bet Tonight's NBA Action

The Knicks have lost four of their last six games but did beat the Pacers 109-103 at Indiana on Monday night. Kristaps Porzingis hit just 3-of-11 shots and two 3-pointers for eight points, four rebounds, a steal and a block in 25 minutes on Monday. Porzingis has been playing through a swollen right (shooting) elbow, but he's not using that as an excuse for his recent shooting woes.

The Mavericks, meanwhile, have won four of their last six games and are coming off a 122-73 victory over the Lakers on Sunday night. Wesley Matthews will play tonight despite suffering through a hip injury. "I'm going to try to go," Matthews said. "…If I feel like I'm hurting the team, then I'll pull myself out."
