The Warriors are 23-8-1 ATS in their last 32 games playing on 0 days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games. The Knicks are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 1 days rest and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 vs. Western Conference. The Warriors are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in New York and 9-3 ATS in the last 12 meetings overall.
The Warriors continue to roll and just had their scare against the 76ers, so they should be ready to take this game somewhat serious. Curry also does something special when playing in New York. I like the Warriors by double digits.
