The Golden State Warriors, without superstar Steph Curry, travel to the Big Apple to lock horns with the New York Knicks at the legendary Madison Square Garden. If the season ended today, the defending champion Warriors would be out of the Western Conference playoffs.
That’s right, the Warriors are currently ranked 11th in the conference and are one game away from having a positive record with 15-16 points. The Knicks, meanwhile, have won seven straight games and suddenly find themselves in sixth place in the Eastern Conference.
The Golden State Warriors head to New York to take on the Knicks after picking up their third win of the season. With Steph Curry out indefinitely with a shoulder injury, Jordan Poole scored a career-high 43 points in the Warriors’ 126-110 win over the Toronto Raptors on Sunday night.
It was the Warriors’ first win in five tries without Curry this season and only their second straight game without him as the former MVP continues to recover from injury. Klay Thompson and Draymond Green contributed 17 points apiece and Green added nine rebounds.
Meanwhile, the New York Knicks are playing their best game of the season heading into this matchup against the defending NBA champion Warriors. The Knicks have won seven straight games, four of them on the road. On Sunday in Indianapolis, New York came from behind to beat the Pacers 109-106.
During their current seven-game winning streak, the Knicks are scoring more than 112 points per game and shooting 44% from the field. They have made 36% of their 3-point shots and have lost the ball 14 times per game. The Knicks are also averaging 51 rebounds per game during this span.
The Knicks will have their hands full with the Warriors, even with Curry out of this game. The key to a Knicks win will be their ability to beat 3-point shooters and their dominance on the glass. Green will likely be tasked with slowing down Randall, but it will be a tough matchup for the veteran with Randall’s ability to stretch it outside and bully him around the basket.
