The Knicks have only two wins in their last 19 starts. At the center of their struggles is Tim Hardaway, Jr., who is playing an uninspired brand of basketball. Bradley Beal on the other hand has single-handedly turned the Wizards season around. In the last 15 games Beal has scored the most points in the league, minus Houston’s Beard.
The Kings are kicking off their season-long six-game road trip against the Hornets. Kemba willed his team to only 2 wins during their own recent road trip, and seeks revenge against Cauley-Stein and company after a losing at Golden 1 Center less than 7 days ago.

Philly has looked great recently. At the forefront of the hot streak is Ben Simmons, who is contributing all over the board and finished one assist short of a triple-double against MIN on Tuesday. The Pacers are also coming off a blowout win against an upstart Phoenix team. Oladipo is in for a monster game after sitting out the second half of that game.
Devin Booker and the Suns are marching into Toronto. Booker has averaged 24.3 points per game this season and has dealt with back injuries for the better part of 3 weeks. Toronto also looks for a bounce-back game after a close call in Boston where Kyrie evaded a lunging Leonard late to break the hearts of Dinosaur nation.
After getting a taste of reality Tuesday, the Nugs will look to bury a tanking Bulls squad. Markkanen is playing well and without injured starting forward Wendell Carter, Jr. should see increased playing time. On the Nuggets side, Jamaal Murray will look to shoot early and often in this one and appears to be a steal in DFS formats.

OKC and the Lakers both enter Thursday’s game needing a win. OKC has lost 7 of it’s last 12 and Westbrook has pointed at a regressing defense as the problem, having given up 149 points to Atlanta earlier in the week. Defense has been an issue for a Bron-less Laker squad as well. We expect a high-scoring affair and for Kyle Kuzma to show up in a big way.
