The Warriors are traveling to New York to face off against the dysfunctional Knicks.
Golden State is on a 2 game losing streak, while New York is 2-2 in their last four.
The Warriors won the first meeting of this season series and have won 5 in a row overall.
Golden State Warriors
Kevin Durant’s injury could be a major blow for Golden State’s chances to secure the #1 seed in the West. The MVP candidate will be out the remainder of regular season, and with a streaking San Antonio on their heels, the Warriors can’t afford to lose to inferior opponents.
During this two game losing streak Steph Curry has not shot the ball well from behind the arc. He is just 4-31 in the last three games as well. He will need to get out of this shooting slump against a Knicks team who has already beaten the Spurs this year and shouldn’t be taken lightly.
I expect Curry to put on a show at MSG, and finish with 35 points while knocking down 6 three’s.
With Durant out Klay Thompson should get more looks in the offense, but he is aso stuck in a shooting slump of his own. He was 1-11 from behind the arc against the Bulls, and finished with just 13 points.
It’s surprising to see how poor the offense has played since Durant went down with the injury.
This should be a game where Thompson breaks out of the slump, and I believe he will also have a 30 point game on the big stage in NYC.
Draymond Green is the do everything player for the Warriors. He had a poor shooting night in the first game against the Knicks, but still finished with double digit rebounds.
Can a triple double happen in this one? Of course because Green is that talented of a player, and the Knicks front line defense isn’t scaring anyone.
The Warriors will need to get back to playing good defense which should help out their transition offense, because scoring less than 90 points is very surprising to see.
New York Knicks
After scoring 37 against the Sixers on February 25th, Carmelo Anthony has had 3 straight poor shooting games for the Knicks. It was capped off with a 5-18 performance against the same Sixers, as he finished with 18 points and 6 rebounds.
The Knicks clearly had higher hopes for the team this year but Anthony is still a good NBA player. This will be a tough matchup as I expect Klay Thompson to defend him for most of the game and shut Anthony down.
Kristaps Porzingis was shut down by the Warriors in the first meeting this season. He shot 4-13 from the floor to finish the game with 8 points and only 5 rebounds.
