What you need to know about the Knicks

The Knicks strolled past the San Antonio Spurs on Monday, 111-96. R.J. Barrett scored 31 points, marking the fourth time he has reached the 30-point mark this season. Evan Fournier had 18 points and five rebounds as the Knicks outscored the Spurs 29-21 in the fourth quarter. 

Immanuel Quickley ranks second in the NBA in free throw percentage at 93 percent and could see more playing time with Kemba Walker (knee) questionable and Derrick Rose (ankle) out. Also questionable for New York are Nerlens Noel (conditioning) and Taj Gibson (wrist). The Knicks have covered the spread in each of their last four home games.

What you need to know about the Mavericks

Dallas eased past the Chicago Bulls on Sunday, 113-99. Luka Doncic dropped a triple-double on 22 points, 14 dimes, and 14 rebounds while Jalen Brunson scored 17 points. Dallas is 15-7 this season when Doncic scores 20-plus points. 

The Mavericks’ defense ranks third in points allowed per game, with only 103.3 on average. Part of the reason why Dallas is limiting opponents from scoring is because it isn’t allowing them to have extra possessions as the Mavs commit the second fewest turnovers per game. Kristaps Porzingis (health and safety protocols) and Willie Cauley-Stein (personal) are out.
