Washington Wizards Will Face the New York Knicks at NBA London 2019
The NBA is back in London. The Washington Wizards and the New York Knicks for the first time will be playing on British soil. The ninth regular season game is to be held at the O2 Arena. The game is expected to kick off on Jan 17, 2019, at 8 p.m. (GMT). Fans of basketball betting are going to have a hard time placing their bets, for the US viewers, they can catch the game from 3 p.m. (ET) or 12 p.m. (PT) on Jan 17, 2019. The game will also be broadcasted by NBA partners across the Middle East and Africa.
While their opponents are ranked 11th, the Knicks only have 1 win out of 13 in the eastern conference. This leaves them at their current 13th position. Having an average of 30 points in each game, Bradley Beal may become the star of the show. On the other hand, the Knicks are in a changeover period. One of their newcomers Kevin Knox is coming this season. The 19-year-old made history when he scored 30 points in the game with Philadelphia 76ers. The basketball betting companies will find it challenging placing the odds.
New York Knicks Turn of Events
The festive period was not ideal for the Knicks. They began an intensive six-game road trip after their game at home on Christmas. However, having put in their all, they came home with only one win. With their recent turn of events, they need to do better in London.
Unpredictable Fate of the Washington Wizards
Despite this year’s tragic start, the Wizards climbed to 11th place. In just two games of the Eastern Conference, they recovered well. However, they have the unfortunate habit of losing to teams that are below. If they truly want to play in the playoffs, they must play better against the Knicks.
Both teams have had challenging pasts. New York Knicks have a promising future. Despite their current ranking, they have outstanding current and new players. The Knicks have come a long way and their players are striving to ensure they win. The Wizards have put forward top class performance. Their player Bradley has become a star with his recent performance.
However, victory is heavily reliant on a group effort. The Wizards are unpredictable in their matches. The Knicks, on the other hand, are currently at a lower ranking. We can only wait and see how the game goes for both teams. It is a slippery slope between these teams.
