New York Knicks's Latest Performance :
Knicks came from 21 down for overtime win against the Hornets. Emmanuel Mudiay led the way with 34 points a career-high and 8 assists. Mudiay scored 14 points in the fourth quarter, including a fadeaway jumper with 27.2 seconds left that tied the game at 113-113. Charlotte’s Kemba Walker missed a 3-pointer with 8.2 seconds left, and the game went to overtime. With that win, the Knicks ended a five-game losing streak. Kevin Knox made 7-of-15 from the field for 20 points with three rebounds he is playing well as a starter for the Knicks and likely will remain in the starting lineup after a performance like that. Vonleh chipped in with 15 points with 11 rebounds, seven assists against his former team. Kanter had 15 points as well he will have to go up against Myles Turner in the next game. If the Knicks can contain Oladipo from going off they have a great chance of picking up the dub on the road.
Indiana Pacers 's Latest Performance :
The Pacers have now won six games in a row as they took down the Sixers in convincing fashion. They now have wins against all of the teams projected to be better than them in the conference standings, having beaten the Milwaukee Bucks earlier this week and the Boston Celtics last month. The Pacers team effort was enough to ruined Joel big night. Leading the way for the Pacers was Thad Young he dropped a season-high 26 points and grabbed 10 boards with five assists. Sabonis chipped in with an impressive double-double with 16 points and 14 boards. The Pacers are 13-3 against East teams. Oladipo will look to bounce back after a rough shooting night finishing with only 14 points on 5-for-16 shooting. Even if he isn’t 100%, he’s still finding ways to produce and help his team win it will be interesting to see how he plays against New York as the Pacers are looking to extend their win streak to seven.

Against The Spread Selection: Indiana Pacers
My reason for the pick :
The Pacers will win their seventh game in a row as they extend their impressive record playing against Eastern Conference team to 14-4. Oladipo is starting to look like himself as his shot will start to drop after struggling shooting the ball in the last few games. For the Knicks, they will put up a good fight but with the way the Pacers are playing right now it is tough to see the Knicks create an upset on the road.
