Fast Don’t Lie. As indicated by his new Adidas commercial, Derrick Rose may just be the quickest point guard in the NBA betting lines.

Although we are just three games into the season, the Chi-town native has been tearing up the league. Rose dropped 28 opening against Oklahoma City and followed up with a dominant 39-point performance at home in a 101-91 win over Detroit.

On Monday, the third-year point guard showed another dimension of his evolving game. While he managed to go 6-11 from the field with 16 points, Rose dished out 13 assists in a 110-98 win over the Portland Trailblazers.

Rose is currently on pace to average 27.7 points per game and 8.7 assists this NBA betting lines season, the best numbers of his career so far. Last year, he led the Bulls with 20.8 points and 6 assists per game.

If Rose can keep up with his current pace, which might be possible once Carlos Boozer returns to the lineup in a month or two, we might be witnessing the return of glory to the Chicago Bulls franchise.

With the addition of Amare Stoudemire in the offseason, a decision that was largely overshadowed by ‘The Decision’, the New York Knicks do a have a good nucleus of talent.

Newly acquired point guard Raymond Felton is coming into his own after five years in the league, and looks comfortable on the court with his new teammates. Felton is averaging 16 points per game and is sporting the best assist-to-turnover ratio of his career.

Stoudemire has found his footing in the Big Apple, scoring 21.3 points and 7.7 boards per game, however it has been the emergence of 6th-man small forward Wilson Chandler as the Knicks second-leading scorer (21 PPG) that makes New York a dangerous team.

Stoudemire will be a difficult NBA betting lines matchup for Bulls center Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose will be a tough cover for Raymond Felton, however I think Felton has enough ‘quicks’ to contain Rose.

NorthBet Numbers:
New York Knicks are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games

NBA Betting Lines Pick – Knicks +7
