I'm playing on DETROIT. The Knicks have played fairly well. Last night's win brought them to 500 on the season. In the East, that's good enough to have them tied with the Raptors, with the fourth best record. Only Philadelphia, Brooklyn and Milwaukee have been better. The Knicks are still 7-10 on the road though and this is a tough spot. While they were leaving it all on the floor, in eking out the 3-point win at MSG, the Pistons were resting, waiting for them. The Pistons know that they'll face these same Knicks at MSG, where NY is 10-7, in a few days. They also know that they're 3-15 on the road (compared to 6-9 at home) and that they won't have the schedule in their favor for that 3/4 game. That makes taking care of business this evening imperative. Note that the Knicks are 0-3 ATS in 2021, when playing on the road, after playing the previous day. Losses were at Chicago, Sacramento and Charlotte. Schedule and venue in their favor, look for the Pistons to move to 7-0 ATS against Atlantic Division teams.
