The New York Knicks have won 13 games in a row and are on a staggering 13-1 ATS (against the spread) run following a 120-99 win over the Washington Wizards on Tuesday.

New York has been performing above its season averages at both ends of the court. The Knicks are scoring 105.8 points per game and allowing 92.8 points during the 13-game winning streak. That's much better than their season averages of 99.8 points and 95.6 points allowed, respectively.

Carmelo Anthony has also been on fire since returning from a knee injury. Melo is averaging 40.6 points per game on a smoking 61 percent from the floor (80-for-131) over the past five games. He scored 36 points in the win over Washington to lead all scorers in the game.

The Knicks travel to Chicago on Thursday. The Bulls are 3-0 SU (straight up) and ATS (against the spread) this season.

Here is New York's remaining schedule:

April 11 @Chicago (0-3 SU, 0-3 ATS)
April 12 @Cleveland (2-0 SU, 1-1 ATS)
April 14 vs. Indiana (1-2 SU, 2-1 ATS)
April 15 @Charlotte (2-0 SU, 0-2 ATS)
April 17 Atlanta (2-0 SU, 1-1 ATS)
