Tuesday, December 14th finds the Golden State Warriors playing the New York Knicks in their first meeting this season. The teams will play once more at the Chase Center on February 10th.
Golden State is playing the second game of a back-to-back having won 102-100 versus Indiana on the front side and saving history for Tuesday. The Knicks last played Sunday in a 97-112 losing effort to the Bucks.
Last season, the teams played twice each team winning on the opposing court. The Warriors hold the all-time record having bested the Knicks in 182 of their 344 matches.
Golden State Warriors
With this being the second night of a back-to-back set for the Warriors and with the Knicks shorthanded it could result in Steve Kerr electing to rest some of his core.
One player who is most likely not to sit is Stephen Curry who just needs one 3-pointer to tie Ray Allen and two to break the all-time record. Once again the Dubs seemed to be pressing for Steph to set the record as he shot 5 of 15 from deep.
Now with the record so close perhaps the Warriors will play more like themselves. Curry finished with 26 points, six rebounds, six assists, a steal, and a block. ‘
Draymond Green (nine rebounds, five assists) and Andrew Wiggins (five rebounds, an assist, steal, and three blocks) each scored 15 points while Kevon Looney (14) and Otto Porter (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
With the Warriors pressing they were turning over the ball and giving the Pacers easy buckets. The Dubs had 18 turnovers in total leading to 19 points plus the Pacers got to the line twice as much (31 to 14) but Golden State hung in and found a way to win in clutch time.
New York Knicks
The Knicks have lost three games in a row with their lone win versus the Spurs in their last seven games. The 7-4 start to the season seems like eons ago with the Knicks winning just five times in 16 opportunities since then.
This week could find some relief as they’ll play two lottery teams (Rockets, Pistons) and an equally reeling Boston club that was featured in the early season “Bing Bong” overtime win.
First, they’ll face the Warriors who would be tough to beat under normal circumstances but like the Bulls, the Knicks are dealing with core roster members entering the NBA health and safety protocols.
Specifically, RJ Barrett and Obi Toppin are affected plus Alec Burks was out for what the team cited as personal reasons. That left coach Tom Thibodeau few options and he tapped rookie Quentin Grimes to replace Barrent while Derrick Rose filled Burks spot.
They both rose to the challenge with Grimes scoring 27 including seven 3-pointers. Little used Kevin Knox also got run and delivered scoring 18 points to match Rose’s output while Immanuel Quickley was the only other double-figure scorer with 11.
Julius Randle had an off night as the focus of the Bucks defense scoring just eight points (2 of 9) but delivered elsewhere with 10 rebounds and seven assists.

Free Golden State Warriors vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction
MSG is going to be amped for this history-making game. Arguably no fan base is more appreciative of basketball players regardless of who they play for. They’ll cheer the “Bing Bong” crew loudest but also pay homage to the excellence that is Steph Curry.
Needing only two 3-pointers I think once they are out of the way the entire Warriors team relaxes and they easily beat the Knicks even though they are at home with the rest advantage.
