Why the Knicks can cover

In his last outing against the Bulls, the 27-year-old had 45 points, eight assists, and went 7-of-12 from beyond the arc.

Guard Josh Hart is his fellow Villanova product and has terrific chemistry with Brunson. Hart excels in transition as both a slasher and a shooter from the outside. Additionally, Hart is always fighting on the boards. He puts up 9.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per contest. On April 9 versus the Bulls, Hart finished with 17 points, 13 rebounds, and seven assists. See which team to pick here
