OUR PREDICTION: Pick your poison when it comes to these two teams. Neither are reliable options but at least the Knicks have covered in five of their last seven games against the Nets. They're also 5-2 at the betting window in their last seven games coming off a loss and have covered in five of their last seven conference games.
