The series is split 1 game a piece, as both teams were able to pick up a win in Cleveland before Game 3 and 4 now in the Big Apple.

The Knicks surprised many by winning game 1 but things came back down to earth when the Cavaliers dominated Game 2 and levelled out the series.

Darius Garland was sensational for the Cavs in game 2, dropping 32 points and 7 assists to lead the Cavs their big Game 2 win.

Star guard Donovan Mitchell took a back seat scoring in Game 2, but recorded a career high 13 assists to help the Cavs even the series.

For the Knicks, Game 2 was one to forget as most of the team struggled to score and just couldn’t get it rolling.

Jalen Brunson has been fantastic all season for New York but had a bit of an off night, only scoring 20 points and shooting 5-17 from the field.

Julius Randle also struggled, scoring only 22 points and going 8-20 from the field.

Both of the the Knicks’ studs will have to bounce back tonight for the Knicks to take care of business at home and get right back in the lead in the series.

And I think they do.

It will be a battle tonight in the Garden but I like the Knicks to get the job done, on the moneyline.

Player Prop of the Game

Isaiah Hartenstein o6.5 Points+ Assists (+100) Bet MGM

Will Isaiah Hartenstein continue to contribute tonight against the Cavaliers?

Probably not the prop you expected, but wow I love this prop.

Hartenstein has 7+ Points and assists in 6 straight games versus Cleveland. He had 5 assists last game and has been playing a steady 21+ minutes so far this series.

He also has 7+ Points and assists in 9 of his last 10 games, a 90% hit rate. Hard to ignore that type of success.

At the low number and the fantastic hit rate versus the Cavaliers and recently, this is my favorite prop tonight!

I will ladder his PA if and when it becomes available but if it doesn’t, his assists is a fine pivot. He had 5 in Game 2 and the previous 5 matchups with the Cavaliers, he has 4+ in 3 of those 4 games.

Bonus: Hartenstein 4+ assists
