Featured Game | New York Knicks vs. Detroit Pistons

Why the Knicks can cover

Forward Julius Randle is a very strong and powerful left-hander. Randle shows a high motor and finishes well around the rim. The Kentucky product can be a threat on the boards and creates extra opportunities on the offensive glass. Randle is leading the team in points (20.5) and rebounds (9.1). In his last game, he amassed 24 points and 11 rebounds.

Forward Obi Toppin is a high-flying threat soaring off the bench for New York. Toppin scores within the flow of the offense with the bounce to rise over defenders with ease. The Dayton product provides a spark off the bench. He can absorb contact and finish through it. Toppin averages 10.3 points and four rebounds per game. 

Why the Pistons can cover

Forward Saddiq Bey is a scrappy and high-energy player. Bey can be an outstanding shooter in catch-and-shoot positions with an effortless stroke. The Villanova product is a two-way player who plays hard/physical defense. The 2020 first-round pick is averaging 17.1 points and 4.8 rebounds per game. He’s scored 20-plus in two of his last four games.

Guard Jaden Ivey is an impactful rookie. Ivey has blazing speed in the open court and can explode to the rim. Defensively, Ivey is gritty and applies constant pressure on the ball-handler. The 2022 fifth-overall pick is able to create space to get clean looks at the rim. He’s averaging 15.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.8 assists per contest this season.
