Knicks vs Lakers Prediction

The Los Angeles Lakers come to Madison Square Garden as the underdogs. They will be without LeBron James who was suspended one game for striking Detroit’s Isaiah Stewart on Sunday.

New York enjoyed a hot start to the season, going 5-1 before slightly regressing. Julius Randle has been the standout star for this well-rounded Knicks squad. Randle poured out 34 points in the Knicks’ last outing against the Bulls.

Los Angeles are 1-5 ATS in their last six matchups against New York. Knicks’ coach Tom Thibodeau’s defensive mindset should make for a tough time for the LeBron-less Lakers. Back New York to get the job done at home.
