Both of these teams have been surprises this season, though in both cases it was because expectations were set pretty low.
Golden State suffered the loss of Klay Thompson before the season even started, and those first couple of games were pretty ugly. Then things improved.
New York might still be under .500 but the fact that they did not immediately sink to the bottom of the Eastern Conference is a nice story.
New York Knicks
There are lots of ways to look at the Knicks’ success so far. The thing that hits me first is the defense. They are currently the top defensive team in league.
That is a pure numbers evaluation too. They are tops in the league in points allowed and to show that that figure is not just about pace they are tops in FG% allowed and 3PTFG% allowed too.
The key to their defense is the play of centers Mitchell Robinson and Nerlens Noel. Both have limited offensive games but make shots tough to convert at the rim and have long arms to be disruptive.
On offense, it is all about Julius Randle. He is not a great ball-handler but he is the linchpin of the offense, leading the team in scoring, rebounding and assists.
On a better team, he might be a perfect #2 but the Knicks need him to be a high volume guy. RJ Barrett has been better in year two but still not quite as advertised yet.
New York has one of the least productive backcourt in the league. It would not be a surprise if Steph Curry outscored Reggie Bullock and Elfrid Payton combined.
Rookie Immanuel Quickley has shown some promise of late. He is producing more than top pick Obi Toppin.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors should be feeling good of a win over the Lakers in their last game. Especially if it means that Draymond Green is rounding into form.
Andrew Wiggins scored 18 points in the win but is questionable for this one. He is the second-leading scorer on the team and they don’t have an obvious guy to assume that production.
If Steph can keep this team relevant in the Western Conference he should get some MVP buzz. Right now he is averaging 28ppg and 6apg. There is no way he is going to be as efficient as he was a few years back because the team is much more dependant upon him.
Rookie James Wiseman is not giving them much yet. Even though the Knicks have good defensive centers this might be a good matchup for him because he does not have to worry too much on defense. He can roam and be a menace the way those Knicks guys usually are.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Under is 10-2 in NY last 12 overall.

Free New York Knicks vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Prediction:
Hitting the West Coast is always a tough for East Coast teams. The teams are better and the first game can be a tricky one. This is their first game west of Indiana.
Helping New York is the fact that Golden State is hosting the Spurs the night before and this will be three games in four days.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Knicks ATS
If the Warriors were going to try and coast and get by for any of these games this is the won. The Knicks steal it.
