Kemba Walker under 10.5 Points (-118)
It has been an interesting year to say the least for the veteran guard in his first season playing in New York. He has been in and out of the lineup all season and has looked great at times and pretty bad at others. Since his return to action and the starting lineup on January 18th, Kemba has averaged just 22 minutes per game in those 6 games, this includes 3 games where he played less than 20 minutes, and he is averaging just 7.8 ppg in that stretch and failing to hit double digit points in 5 straight. He is coming off a game in a very favorable match against Sacramento in which he only played 16 minutes and put 0 points on 2 shot attempts. Memphis is middle of the pack in terms of points allowed to the PG position but they rank top 10 in defensive rating overall. The Knicks may also opt to give more minutes to Immanuel Quickley off the bench, who is a much more capable defender than Kemba, to help deal with Ja Morant. In a crowded Knicks backcourt, we are going to ride the most recent trend of Kemba struggling to get minutes and put any type of redeemable stat line.
