Although he’s missed the past two games, Victor Oladipo is still struggling offensively, and with Jeremy Lamb now out for the year, the Pacers can’t afford to be patient with him any longer. New York Knicks at Philadelphia 76ers: Over 210.5
No amount of injuries could actually convince me to pick the Knicks to win a game. The absences of Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid at least change the complexion of the game enough a bet involving them doing something good to be viable. They’ve played with Anthony Davis but without James once, a 24-point loss to the Denver Nuggets, and while the other game they played without James was a 15-point win over the Oklahoma City Thunder without Davis as well, that should hardly be viewed as sustainable considering the Lakers shot 47 percent on 3s. Without James this season, the Lakers have been outscored by 2.6 points per 100 possessions.
