The under is 5-1 in Warriors last 6 overall. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

The New York Knicks are still putting up fights here and there, but that offense is starting to go through droughts at times and they're starting to lose some of my confidence. The Golden State Warriors are on the end of a back to back, but they're heating up and continue to be a team that's growing on me. The Warriors should have more than enough in the tank to get the job done against a Knicks team that is having issues filling it up.
