The Cleveland Cavaliers are set to hold home court aginst the New York Knicks on Monday night.

Knicks’ season falling south

The Knicks have seen their 2018-19 season quickly go from discouraging to disappointing in a hurry having dropped their last 16 straight games, which is a franchise-worst mark. They have had a tremendous amount of struggles that have pushed toward the worst mark in the Eastern Conference and worst mark in the league overall. They have had plenty of issues on both ends of the floor with them continuing to mount as the All-Star break draws closer. A large part of these problems has come from an utter lack of offensive production that has seen them rank among the least productive teams in the league. They are currently 25th scoring 105.2 points per contest along with being last shooting 43.0 percent from the floor, tied for 28th shooting 33.7 percent from beyond the arc this year, and last with 19.7 assists per contest.

This hasn’t completely overshadowed the promising production that second-year point guard Dennis Smith Jr. since he was acquired by the Dallas Mavericks prior to the trade deadline. In his first three games with the team, Smith Jr. is averaging 21.3 points, 6.7 assists, and 3.3 rebounds. This saw him become the first player in team history to record more than 60 points and 20 assists in his first three games with the Knicks. He is also the youngest player in franchise history to post at least 30 points and five assists in a single game. Meanwhile, rookie forward Kevin Knox has been a reliable offensive option with 30 double-digit scoring performances with eight 20-point games and one 30-point outing this season. Ultimately, their lack of offensive stability beyond that should be too much to overcome and extend their franchise-worst mark to 17 straight games on Monday night.

Cavaliers hoping to right the ship

It has been anything but a promising season for the Cavaliers as they have continued to flounder at the bottom of the standings in the Eastern Conference. They have had experienced plenty of tough stretches in the first half of the year ahead of the All-Star break. However, it has seen their young core group put together some encouraging play on the court as the season has continued to roll along. Rookie point guard Collin Sexton has been a major offensive factor on the court as has scored in double figures 48 times along with being tied for the most such performances with Dallas Mavericks rookie forward Luka Doncic. Sexton has picked it up in the last three games as he’s averaging 23.3 points along with shooting 52.9 percent from the floor with 4.0 rebounds, 3.7 assists per contest. This includes a pair of 20-point performances while nailing at least three-pointers in each game.

Meanwhile, veteran guard Jordan Clarkson has been a maj0r offensive factor as their primary scorer off the bench. He is averaging a career-best 16.8 points per contest, which is currently ranked third in the league among bench players. Clarkson has also notched 48 double-digit scoring performances this season, which is tied with L.A. Clippers point guard Lou Williams. In the last six games, he is averaging 19.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per contest. Although the Cavaliers have had plenty of offensive issues this season, they should be able to put forth a strong offensive outing against a struggling team in the Knicks. They have had much success against New York in the last 15 games holding a 13-2 record that has seen them outscore the Knicks by an average of 8.9 points while limiting the Knicks to a combined .425 shooting from the field. Ultimately, given the downward trend that New York continues to move should see Cleveland snap their four-game losing streak on Monday night.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Cavaliers have had their fair share of struggles on the court throughout the year, but the Knicks have taken these issues to the next level. It is the type of matchup that will allow them to get back on track toward putting together a strong performance against a struggling team. What should be noted is that the Knicks are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings against the Cavaliers.

Prediction: Cleveland -1.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

This is a matchup between two teams that have had their fair struggles offensively this year being at the bottom of the league. It should see this become a contest where offensive production comes at more of a premium. What should be noted is that the under is 6-1-1 in the last eight meetings between both teams in Cleveland.

Prediction: Under 209.5
