(3% play) UNDER 203 – (Knicks/Clippers) – 10:35 pm ET (NBA-tv) #518

New York comes into tonight’s game in Los Angeles off a 128-97 blowout win in Phoenix on Wednesday night. The 128 points scored by the Knicks was one of their best offensive performances of the season. New York had seven players score in double digits while shooting 56.1% (46-82) from the field and an incredible 66.7% (16-24) from three-point land. The Knicks also hit 83.3% (20-24) from the free throw line. New York’s offense played a perfect game, but we expect major regression tonight. Prior to that offensive outburst, the Knicks did not eclipse more than 105 points in 14 of their previous 16 games. New York’s offensive performance against the Suns was an anomaly, and there’s a high probability that the Knicks will not come close to matching that efficient production.

Los Angeles returns home off a 120-108 blowout loss at Oklahoma City on Wednesday night. The Clippers were in a terrible spot for that game, so we can dismiss the results. Los Angeles played one of their worst defensive games of the season as they allowed the Thunder to shoot 52.7% (48-91) from the field in that game. Off that loss, and with a return home, we expect a much better defensive performance by the Clippers tonight. Los Angeles also lost their previous home game because of poor defense; they allowed 107 points to the Hawks. Prior to their awful defensive effort against the Thunder, Los Angeles had held six of their previous nine opponents to 98 points or less. In an earlier season meeting, the Clippers held the Knicks to just 88 points on 38.8% (33-85) shooting from the field and 22.2% (4-18) shooting from three-point land. Look for a low-scoring game between the Knicks and Clippers on Friday night.
