The Knicks squeaked out a 111-105 victory last night to pull even with the Heat. That marked the 14th straight time a Game 1 home loser rebounded to win Game 2. They’ve also covered the spread in 10 of the past 11, with the Knicks last night serving as the exception.
This postseason, home teams down 0-1 have taken all five Game 2s, winning by an average of 12.6 points.
This scenario will pop up twice more in the next two days. You can construct a moneyline parlay of tonight’s Celtics -350 (vs. 76ers) and tomorrow’s Warriors -240 (vs. Lakers) for -122 odds.
