Golden State Warriors
Golden State’s four-game East Coast road trip has started off poorly with a narrow loss in Orlando followed by that late-game debacle against Charlotte that ended with a Terry Rozier buzzer-beater.
Bigger picture, however, the Warriors have been doing all right, considering both Kevon Looney and James Wiseman have been out for several weeks each now.
Both are set to possibly return for this game. There is no official word but reports are out there with this game in New York as a target for either one or even both.
It would be a huge lift to an undersized team that has been making the most of the talent it has.
Getting Looney back would mean another leader on the floor that the Warriors’ establishment knows it can trust. Getting Wiseman back would mean restarting his personal development.
Stephen Curry did not play against the Hornets, which almost certainly made the difference in a game decided at the buzzer. He did not feel well before the tip-off and so Golden State made the decision to rest him.
With two days off between that game and this one, one imagines Curry should be good enough to go at the Garden.
New York Knicks
The Knicks beat the Timberwolves on Sunday, not handily but by enough to cover the modest number set by the oddsmakers, 103–99.
The Knicks clamped down on Malik Beasley and made Karl-Anthony Towns do it all. He had a big double-double with 27 and 15 but the Timberwolves failed to crack 100 points, despite hot three-point shooting.
Minnesota shot 16-of-35 from out there, compared to the Knicks, who went just 6-for-18.
With Mitchell Robinson out, Nerlens Noel continued to start at center. It was his fourth consecutive start and he came a rebound shy of his first double-double on the season, which has eluded him up to now.
Austin Rivers missed the game with a non-covid-related illness. Even with Rivers out, both Kevin Knox (first pick in 2018) and Kevin Knox (first pick in 2017) did not see the floor.
Instead, Head Coach Tom Thibodeau continued to turn to his two rookies from the 2020 draft, Immanuel Quickley and Obi Toppin, off the bench.

Free Golden State Warriors vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction: New York.
The Knicks will most likely be getting a couple points in this spot at home. The public is going to like Golden State but the Knicks’ defense might just make life tough on Curry, who may or may not be feeling up to it.
In a bit of a contrarian play, take the Knicks with the points and sprinkle some on the moneyline, too.
