The Preview Professor looks ahead to tonight’s game at the o2 Arena.
Unhumanly tall Americans have flown all the way across the Atlantic Ocean to prove to some Americans who decided to stay which group of them can throw an inflated orange ball into a metal hoop raised up high in the air the most times.
This spectacle of human achievement will be held at the o2 arena so that as many people who don’t normally have the chance to see such an event have the opportunity to see it.
The New York Knicks started the season being able to put the ball in the hoop much more often than the other people could but recently have started losing concentration, launching it instead merely at the piece of cardboard conveniently placed behind the metal hoop. They will be hoping Carmelo Anthony, who returned to the US with a shiny gold medal last time he came to visit London, will be able to inspire them to victory.
The Detroit Pistons will be hoping they do better than the last time the two sides met. The Michigan side lost 100-121 and will be hoping that, even though they have nothing to play for with the play-offs almost certainly out of their reach, they can return to the States with their pride still in tact.
Check out these moving images of what happened the last time the two sides had a get-together.
The New York Knicks are currently 10/23 to win tonight’s game. Get the latest New York Knicks vs Detroit Pistons betting odds here!
