Pick ATS: Knicks -4.5

Miami got absolutely crushed by the Celtics in their latest game, while the Knicks put together one of the best wins of their season over the Nuggets. The Knicks have homecourt advantage and plenty of momentum from their current five-game winning streak, while the Heat are reeling after their loss. The Knicks shot well from the perimeter in their most recent win, going 15-38, and the Heat will struggle to shut that down. Take the Knicks to cover as they keep up their hot play.

Over/Under: Under 218
