New York has been much better than expected this season but they are struggling with injuries right now, making this one even tougher.
The Warriors continue to be the leagues best team, capable of putting a hurt on any team, especially those still struggling to find their identity like New York.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors are in Philadelphia the night before, but even though this will be the second of back to back games on the road I am not expecting them to be affected too great by the 76ers – yes I know they have been playing better.
The Knicks are better this season but this is not a good matchup for them even when they are healthy. The league’s best backcourt of Seth Curry and Klay Thompson really stands out in comparison. Those guys are so good, Curry continues to lead the NBA in scoring.
The legend of Draymond Green continues to grow but you might not have known that he actually leads the team in assists this season…plus rebounds..plus blocks. He is quite simply on the perfect team to maximize his talents.
Golden State is missing reserve big man Festus Ezeli. That absence should not be exploited too badly in this contest, especially if the guards are on the mark.
It was not reported enough but the Warriors just hammered the Spurs by 30 points at home. That is supposed to be the second best team in the league. Needless to say the margin is great.
New York Knicks
The Knicks are a few games under .500 but they already have more wins than they did a year ago. They have a shot of making the playoffs even though the Eastern Conference is much more competitive this season.
They just snapped a losing streak by beating Phoenix on Friday night and at least have a chance to rest a little before they welcome the league’s top team.
Most importantly they got Carmelo Anthony back in the lineup last game. If you are going to try to compete with the Warriors you definitely need your biggest gun and he is their top scoring threat by far.
Similarly Kristaps Porzingis is also back and the multi-dimensional rookie might be able to have some success thanks to his size and versatility.
New York has been a surprise but I am not expecting an upset in this one.
