Why should you bet on the Clippers?
Even though the Clippers fell in Oklahoma City, that is something that happens to a lot of teams these days. The Clippers have built a more solid defense as the season has gone by, which means that they aren’t playing from behind all the time like they were early on. The Knicks don’t have a dominant scorer — the Thunder have two — so the Clippers should be able to manage matters.
Why should you put your money on New York?
The Knicks might have found that they had the key to their resurgence under their nose the whole time. Sasha Vujacic made a rare start against Phoenix and hit 6 of 7 from behind the arc, totaling 23 points as the Knicks beat the Suns by 31. He had not appeared at all in the Knicks’ last three contests, but Arron Afflalo (abdominal injury) was on the shelf, so Vujacic got the call — and he answered. If the Knicks can keep the offensive momentum going, they could surprise the Clippers.
