Knicks look to stretch Atlantic Division lead

February 06, 2013 18:12:27 UK
Knicks star Carmelo Anthony.

The New York Knicks follow up their successful and unbeaten five-game home stand with a road swing through Washington and Minneapolis.

Just a half game behind the Miami Heat in the race for the top spot in the Eastern Conference, the Knicks are four games ahead of the Nets after the Los Angeles Lakers upset Brooklyn at home on Tuesday. It's the second of three games at the Verizon Center for the Wizards who returned on Monday from a losing road trip to Philadelphia, Memphis and San Antonio and surprised the short handed Los Angeles Clippers 98-90. Washington will then host the Nets on Friday before heading out of town to play the Milwaukee Bucks and Detroit Pistons next week.

Miami returns to action after Monday's defeat of the Charlotte Bobcats and welcomes in a Houston Rockets side that dropped 140 points on the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday evening. Also hosting Western Conference opposition are the Atlanta Hawks when the Memphis Grizzlies arrive at the Philips Arena. Atlanta has lost two straight to fall six games behind the Heat in the Southeast Division standings losing 114-103 to the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday.

With the win the Pacers moved a half game ahead of the Chicago Bulls in the Central Division. Indiana now heads out to Philadelphia for their third game in three days before returning to the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on Friday to kick off a five-game home stand when the Toronto Raptors arrive in town.

The Pacers can be backed at 1.95 in the point spread (+2.5), while the 76ers (-2.5) are available at 1.86.
