Score: 107 - 116
Point Spread: +6½/-107 LA Lakers
4* LAKERS/KNICKS NBA TNT ATS ANNIHILATOR: Lakers +6.5
The media has been all over the Lakers after their loss to Cavs Monday, which dropped their overall record to 9-13. Head coach Mike D'Antoni has questioned his players effort and I believe a showdown against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden will get this team to respond.
This is a very similar situation to when the Lakers went on the road to face Oklahoma City in a national televised game as a 7.5-point dog. Los Angeles lost the game, but was able to cover the spread in a 108-114 defeat. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised at all if the Lakers won this game outright.
The Knicks are extremely overvalued at home right now, due to their8-0 S.U. and 7-1 ATS record at MSG. Kobe Bryant will not allow the Lakers to go down without a fight and I expect a very close game right to the finish. BET THE LAKERS!
