Slumping Knicks head to Phoenix Wednesday

NEW YORK KNICKS (20-8)

at PHOENIX SUNS (11-17)


Tip-off: Wednesday, 9:05 p.m. ET
Line: New York -3, Total: 199

The Knicks head to Phoenix on Wednesday night trying to get back to their dominant form from the beginning of this season.

New York isn't playing as well as they did to start the season and is now coming off three losses (1-4 ATS) in the past five games. Luckily the Knicks have a chance to get back on track in Phoenix against a Suns team that has lost two straight and nine of 13. When these teams met earlier in the season, Phoenix covered the spread, but New York won 106-99.

Can the Knicks bounce-back from their Christmas Day loss and win one night later? For the answer, connect to NBA Best Bets for all the Expert picks throughout the entire 2012-13 season. The experts have sizzled since Saturday with a collective 12-4 ATS (75%) mark, including a perfect 6-0 ATS from StatFox Dave. The experts are 63% ATS (22-13) since Dec. 19 and are 52% ATS (166-153-10) on Best Bets for the season. StatFox Gary is 54.4% ATS (31-26-3) Best Bets for the year, while StatFox Scott is at 54% ATS (37-32) Best Bets for the season and StatFox Brian is at 52% ATS (41-38-3) after going 9-5 ATS (64%) since Dec. 14. For NBA Totals, Scott is 42-27 (61%) for the season.

The Knicks lost to the Lakers on Christmas Day, but there’s still no reason for the team to panic. SF Carmelo Anthony is on top of his game and the rest of the team is starting to get healthy. Anthony is averaging 28.5 PPG on the season (2nd in NBA) and 31.8 PPG in the four games he’s played since spraining his ankle. New York got back a healthy C Marcus Camby this week, which is great news considering its other backup big man, Rasheed Wallace, suffered a stress fracture in his left foot. SG J.R. Smith is also performing at a very high level for New York, scoring 25 points on 10-of-23 shooting against the Lakers and averaging 21.2 PPG over the past five games.

The Suns seemed like they were turning around their season with a four-game winning streak just a week ago, but now they have lost two straight. A bright spot for Phoenix is that C Marcin Gortat is starting to look like the Gortat of last season. He is averaging 12.0 PPG, 11.4 RPG and 2.4 BPG over the past five games while shooting 52% from the field. On the other hand, Goran Dragic must improve his play if the Suns are going to break their losing streak. Over the past two games, Dragic is shooting just 6-of-21 from the field, a poor percentage compared to his 45% field goal shooting on the season. SF Michael Beasley is questionable for Wednesday's game due to an illness.

NBA game of the day: Lakers at Nuggets
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Los Angeles Lakers at Denver Nuggets (7, 204.5)

The Los Angeles Lakers have achieved the first of their many goals for the remainder of the season. Next up is a victory over the host Denver Nuggets on Wednesday. Los Angeles made a triumphant return to the .500 mark on Christmas Day, getting 34 points from Kobe Bryant and 11 assists from Steve Nash in a come-from-behind win over the New York Knicks. The Lakers have won five straight but will be in tough to extend that run against a Nuggets team sporting an 8-1 home record.

Denver is in the midst of four games in five days, and it kicked off the grueling stretch with a 112-100 loss to the red-hot Los Angeles Clippers. The Nuggets were done in by a 42-point second quarter as they fell for just the second time in the last six games. Considered one of the early-season contenders for a top-four seed in the Western Conference, Denver has lacked the consistency of front-runners Oklahoma City, San Antonio and Memphis and are struggling on the defensive end.

TV: 9 p.m. ET, Time Warner SportsNet (Los Angeles), Altitude (Denver)

ABOUT THE LAKERS (14-14): Much has been made about the struggles of the Lakers' offense despite the addition of two star free agents in Nash and Dwight Howard and a new head coach in Mike D'Antoni. Yet, while it remains to be seen how the Lakers' loaded lineup will jell on the offensive end, it has shown flashes of stardom on defense. Los Angeles limited the Carmelo Anthony-led Knicks to just 14 fourth-quarter points, allowing Bryant and Nash to pull out the victory. With three defensive stalwarts on the roster in Bryant, Howard and Metta World Peace, Los Angeles is a tough team for most opposing scorers to face.

ABOUT THE NUGGETS (15-14): Teams have figured out that one of the best ways to handle the Denver defense is to fire away from beyond the arc. The Nuggets are fifth-worst in the NBA in 3-point shooting percentage against, and the Clippers exploited that weakness by connecting on 11 of 25 attempts in their Christmas Day victory. Denver continues to roll along offensively despite Danilo Gallinari's recent struggles. The Italian forward is mired in a horrible slump, having made just six of his last 31 shot attempts - highlighted by a 1-for-10 clunker against the Clippers, his second such effort in three games.

TRENDS:

* Lakers are 4-1 ATS in their last five games following a win.
* Nuggets are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games.
* Over is 7-1 in Lakers’ last eight vs. NBA Northwest foes.
* Over is 4-0 in Nuggets’ last four vs. NBA Pacific opposition.

BUZZER BEATERS:

1. The Lakers have dominated the head-to-head series of late, eliminating Denver from the 2012 playoffs and cruising to a 122-103 victory in their first meeting this season.

2. Denver is 3-12 when allowing 100 or more points.

3. Bryant averages 24.8 points in 55 career regular-season games against the Nuggets.

Clippers Try To Extend Record Winning Streak Thursday

Dallas Mavericks at Oklahoma City Thunder
NBA Betting Preview
Date: 12/27/2012 at 8:00 p.m. (ET)
Opening Lines: OKC -11, O/U 208
Television: ESPN

Dallas Mavericks: Dallas (12-16 straight-up, 13-15 against the spread) is well-rested after being off since Sunday. That was a 129-91 blowout loss at San Antonio despite Dirk Nowitzki (knee) playing for the first time this season. He scored eight points in 20 minutes off the bench. The Mavs have a three-game losing streak though and have lost five in a row on the road (2-3 ATS). Note leading scorer O.J. Mayo (19.3 points per game) has the flu, but he is listed as probable on the NBA injury report.

Oklahoma City Thunder: The Thunder (21-6 SU, 16-10-1 ATS) have their first two-game losing streak of the season after a 103-97 setback at Miami on Christmas. They now return home, where they have won 10 straight, going 7-3 ATS. This is the first meeting between the teams this season. Oklahoma City has beaten Dallas six straight (3-3 ATS). The road team is also 6-0 ATS in the last six matchups.

Boston Celtics at Los Angeles Clippers
NBA Betting Preview
Date: 12/27/2012 at 10:30 p.m. (ET)
Opening Lines: LA -9, O/U 189
Television: TNT

Boston Celtics: The Celtics (14-13 SU, 10-15-2 ATS) started out their four-game road trip with a nice 93-76 win as 2½-point ‘dogs at Brooklyn on X-Mas. They were 0-5 SU and ATS in their previous five away. Boston has a new starting lineup with Jason Collins at center and Kevin Garnett back at power forward, where he is more comfortable. It also makes the bench more potent with Jeff Green, Brandon Bass and Jared Sullinger all available.

Los Angeles Clippers: The Clippers (22-6 SU, 18-10 ATS) ran their franchise-record winning streak to an amazing 14 games (10-4 ATS) with an easy 112-100 home win over Denver on Christmas. That game went "over" the 204½-point total after the team had allowed just 83.3 points per game in the previous eight with the "under" going 7-1. Boston won the last meeting between the teams 94-85 last March as 5½-point road ‘dogs. The Clips were 6-0 ATS in the previous six encounters.
