New York Knicks: The Knicks (15-5 straight-up, 13-7 against the spread) continued their home dominance with a 112-106 win over Denver on Sunday. Carmelo Anthony (finger) came back from a two-game absence to score 34 points. New York has been an incredible home team all year (8-0 SU, 7-1 ATS) but pretty mediocre on the road (7-5 SU, 6-6 ATS).

Brooklyn Nets: Brooklyn (11-8 SU, 10-7-2 ATS) has cooled off big-time over its last four games, going 0-4 SU and ATS. The last three of those were at home at the new Barclays Center. Center Brook Lopez (foot) has literally hurt the cause by missing the last five games and remains doubtful for Tuesday (click to check updated NBA injury report). Brooklyn won the only meeting against the Knicks this year, 96-89 in overtime as 1-point home ‘dogs on November 26.

Los Angeles Clippers: The Clippers (14-6 SU, 12-8 ATS) most recently beat Toronto on Sunday, 102-83 as 10½-point home favorites. They’ve now won six straight (4-2 ATS), averaging a big 108.8 points per game during that stretch. The "over" is 7-1 in their last eight, with the total going "under" 201½ points last game. This is the start of a four-game road trip with Los Angeles just 4-3 SU and 3-4 ATS away this year.

Chicago Bulls: The Bulls (11-8 SU, 7-12 ATS) have won and covered three straight after a 93-85 home win over the red-hot Knicks on Saturday. Chicago is playing without starting shooting guard Richard Hamilton (foot) and starting point Kirk Hinrich (elbow) is questionable. The team ranks second in scoring defense (91.3 ppg) and 24th in offense (94.1), with the "under" going 8-1 in its last nine. These teams met Nov. 17 in Southern California with the Clippers easily winning 101-80 as 6-point home favorites.
