The New York Knicks invade the Oracle Arena to battle the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night.
The Knicks have lost five of their last eight games but they'll be feeling pretty good following their 90-87 win over the Lakers on Sunday. Carmelo Anthony led the scoring with 26 points on 10 of 20 shooting while Robin Lopez chipped in with 16 points on six of seven shooting, but with the scores tied and the game on the line, the ball went to Jose Calderon who sunk the game-winning 3-pointer to give the Knicks the win at the buzzer. It was a much-needed morale boost for the Knicks who have struggled all season, but they're still just 28-40 on the season which leaves them in 13th position in the Eastern Conference.

With the win, Golden State improve to 60-6 on the season which keeps them in first place in the Western Conference with a four-game lead over San Antonio.
In ATS trends, the Knicks are 6-1 ATS in their last seven road games and 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall, while the Warriors are 4-9-1 ATS in the last 14 against the NBA Atlantic and 1-3-1 ATS in their last five games following a win of more than 10 points.
Head to head, the Knicks are 3-10 ATS in the last 13 meetings overall and 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings in Golden State.
The Knicks are coming off a thrilling win over the Lakers, but the Warriors are just on another level (or two) and should have no problem at all beating the Knicks by 20 points at the Oracle Arena.
