New York Knicks
The Knicks rank a solid 11th in the league in scoring, but only 25th in opponents’ points per game/.
In their loss to the Suns New York did play decent defense holding Phoenix to 40.9% shooting, but they only shot 39.2% from the floor. New York made a big came back outscoring the Suns by 12 points in the 4th quarter to force OT, where they would lose.
The Knicks need to do a better job on the boards in this game than they did in the Suns game where they gave up 16 offensive rebounds.
The 2 big guns for the Knicks are Kristaps Porzingis and Carmelo Anthony and while Porzingis was solid in the Suns game going for 34 points and making all 4 of his 3-pointers Anthony was not only going 3/15 from the floor and scoring 13 points.
One of the reasons the Knicks did get to OT was the play of C Kyle O’Quinn, who went for 22 points, which is over 15 points more than his season average.
The Knicks are only 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games against he Warriors and have failed to cover in 11 of their 14 games facing them overall.

Steph Curry and Kevin Durant combined to score 57 points, but Klay Thomson only went for 17 struggling with his shot only going 6/16 from the floor and missing 8 of his 10 3-pointers.
Can the Knicks contain the Big 3? Not many teams have, but like the last game if one struggles they have a chance.
