Knicks vs Wizards Preview

Washington will travel to New York on Friday for a battle versus the Knicks. For the latest NBA betting trends and NBA free picks on Friday’s game, check out our Knicks vs Wizards preview below.

Knicks Need To Make A Push

The New York Knicks still have an outside chance of making the playoffs, but they’re going to have to play perfect basketball from here on out. They’re five games behind the tenth place Atlanta Hawks, and with not that many games remaining in the season, it seems unlikely that they’re going to be able to complete this task. Unless Atlanta goes on a losing streak and New York goes on a winning streak, the chances are low.

The Knicks are going to be coming into this one after an impressive win against the Portland Trail Blazers. In that game, RJ Barrett led the way with 31 points.

On the season, the Knicks have the 20th rated net rating, the 23rd rated offensive rating, and the 12th rated defensive rating.

Wizards, Similar To Knicks

The Washington Wizards are another team that does have a chance of making the playoffs, but similar to the Knicks, they’re nearly five games behind the 10th place Atlanta Hawks.

The Wizards are going to be coming into this one after losing five straight games, including their most recent loss to the Denver Nuggets, where they lost 127-109. In that game, newly acquired center Kristaps Porzingis led the way with 16 points.

On the season, Washington has the 23rd rated net rating, the 20th ranked offensive rating, and the 25th rated defensive rating.

Free NBA Picks โ€” Knicks vs Wizards

For this game, I actually like the New York Knicks to cover the spread. Washington has been one of the worst teams in basketball the past few weeks, and although the Knicks haven’t exactly looked great themselves, I do think that they’re going to be able to walk away with this one.

I’m also going to throw some money on RJ Barrett to score 25-plus points as he has had some incredible games as of late.
