New York Knicks To Make The Playoffs?
The Knicks have finally made it to that elusive .500 mark after a huge win over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night at the Garden. They’d previously given up chances to hit that figure twice in the past 10 days after losses to the Warriors and the Magic, but a last-gasp win over the Pacers brought their season record to 17-17.
They’re currently locked with the Raptors in fourth spot in the Eastern Conference and travel to Detroit tonight to face the struggling Pistons. Books make them favorites to come out on top (giving 1 point on the spread to Detroit) and if they do, playoff talk will really start to begin.
After 28 points last night, Julius Randle yet again proved himself to be a master playmaker and he could just lift the famous franchise all the way to the playoffs for the first time since 2013.
But, can we even start to think about the Knicks making the playoffs? Can fans start to believe? The sportsbooks certainly think they have a chance! FanDuel currently make them +160 to make the playoffs. That’s the shortest odds they’ve been all season long.
