- Title : New York Knicks vs Phoenix Suns - NBA predictions
The Phoenix Suns will try to continue their winning streak when they visit MSG on Friday night
The New York Knicks are definitely back as contenders in the Eastern Conference as they are currently sitting in second place in the Atlantic Division and seventh in the conference.
General manager Scott Perry and head coach Tom Thibodeau have created a winning mentality and a team spirit in a roster that has given seven different players to be the team’s top scorers in the last seven games.
The Knicks have won three of their last five games defeating the Los Angeles lakers 106-100 at home on Tuesday.
The Knicks built up a 25-point lead in the second quarter and managed to hold it to beat the Lakers with LeBron James being out because of his first career suspension.
The French guard Evan Fournier led the Knicks with 26 points on 6-of-9 from the three-point line.
Julius Randle added 20 points, 16 rebounds and five assists for the Knicks, but sat for eight minutes of the fourth quarter after picking up his fifth foul.
Immanuel Quickley made his presence felt when it mattered, scoring 12 of his 14 points in the fourth quarter.
This was New Yorks’ ninth win in the last 11 home games.
A real challenge for the Knicks will be the visiting Phoenix Suns who haven’t lost a single game in November and are currently on a 14-game winning streak.
The last time Monty Williams’ team lost was against the Sacramento Kings on October 28.
The Suns are visiting New York for back-to-back games against the Knicks and the Nets to close out their four-game road trip.
In the last game, the Suns defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 120-115.
Devin Booker scored 35 points and Chris Paul had 17 points and 12 assists making four free throws in the final 8.8 seconds to seal the deal for the Suns who have the best road record in the league at 7-1.
JaVale McGee had a solid game coming off the bench with 13 points and 12 rebounds.
The win was also the 100th with the Suns for coach Monty Williams, who is in his third season with the club.
- The Suns have won the last 10 games against the Knicks
- The Suns are two games away to be perfect in November
- Derrick Rose will miss the second game in a row for the Knicks

The Phoenix Suns are absolutely unstoppable and the Knicks’ defense does not stand any chance to challenge Booker and Paul. To make things even worse for the Knicks they will be without starting center Mitchell Robinson, power forward Taj Gibson and sixth man Derrick Rose.
The Suns have won the last ten games against the Knicks and a similar outcome is expected on Friday.
