New York Knicks
The Knicks enter tonight’s action sporting a pitiful 10-30 record. Naturally that lackluster performance pegs New York as one of the worst teams in the Atlantic Division, and 14th overall in the Eastern Conference. Looking over tonight’s numbers, it’s clear that New York will have a tough time keeping up with Golden State. Although there’s not much difference in their defenses; New York ranks 27th in points allowed while the Warriors rank 22nd, the difference on offense in substantial. After all, the Warriors come in with the 3rd best scoring offense while New York ranks 23rd. Needless to say that New York is in for a blowout this evening. Testament to that is the whopping 18 point spread line they’re facing on the road.
Players to Watch: Tim Hardaway Jr. (20.2 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 2.8 apg), Enes Kanter (14.5 ppg, 10.8 rpg, 2.0 apg), and Emmanuel Mudiay (14.4 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 4.1 apg).
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors leap into tonight’s late night matchup sporting a 26-14 record that ranks them 1st in the Pacific Division. But in the Western Conference, the Denver Nuggets are the ones currently leading the pack. Currently one-game behind Denver, Golden State is confident they can become the top dog once more. However, with a 3-3 record in their last 6 games, Golden State could find better consistency in the coming days. Fortunately for them, they have an easy win in store for them this Tuesday night.
Players to Watch: Stephen Curry (29.4 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 5.2 apg), Kevin Durant (28.5 ppg, 7.5 rpg, 6.2 apg), and Klay Thompson (21.1 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 2.1 apg).
