Past Expert Picks
The Suns didn't have Ricky Rubio when they lost in Atlanta, but he's back for tonight's game against the scuffling Knicks. He ranks second in the NBA with 9.3 assists per game. Back Phoenix to improve to 8-2 ATS in its last 10 visits to MSG.
The Knicks saw a slight uptick in their performance following the dismissal of David Fizdale, but they have recently regressed with losses in six of their past seven. The banged-up club should see some key players return Thursday, including leading scorer Marcus Morris. But the Suns, who have seen their solid start dissolve into a long stretch of futility, should get a boost from the return of playmaker Ricky Rubio. The offense looked lost amid his absence in a loss to the Hawks in their last outing.
