Last game (Dec. 11). NY Knicks (-3.5) over BROOKLYN, 100-97.  Brooklyn (13-11 SU, 12-10-2 ATS, 9-14-1 O/U) is coming off a 92-90 home loss to Utah on Tuesday night. The NY Knicks (18-6 SU, 14-10 ATS, 13-9-2 O/U) fell at home to Houston, 109-96 on Monday night. Brooklyn visits Madison Square Garden for the "Battle of the Boroughs" at 7pmET on Wednesday.

NBA FREE PICK: Take Brooklyn. According to latest NBA trends, Brooklyn is 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game. New York is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following a double-digit loss at home, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference,  1-5 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest and are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game. In two games this year, the Knicks were victorious over the Nets by three on the road and by three at home in overtime, but Brooklyn covered both games. Carmelo Anthony also had a combined 80 points for the Knicks and is questionable tonight (likely game-time decision) with a sprained ankle. He missed the last two games for the Knicks, including Monday's rough loss to the young Rockets. Brooklyn couldn't overcome a 10-of-32 effort (31.3 percent) from the field in the second half against the Jazz, after scoring 57 in the first half to go up 14. Even though Chris Copeland scored 29 points on Monday for the Knicks, he's no Anthony. With both teams going after it and with the Nets losing two close games to the Knicks, expect another one going down to the wire, with the Nets covering.
