Injury to Watch

Kristaps Porzingis (knee) is out for the year for the Knicks but the Magic are getting healthier. Aaron Gordan (hip) and Nikola Vucevic (hand) are both probable.

Betting Strategy

Take Orlando. The Knicks have been dreadful at the betting window, posting an 0-6 ATS mark in their last six games and failing to cover the spread in all six of their last six games coming off a loss. The opposite is true for the Magic, who are 13-3 at the betting window in their last 16 games overall and who are 11-1 against the number in their last 12 games following a loss. Orlando is also 11-2 ATS in its last 13 conference tilts.
