The Golden State Warriors are probably the more talented team despite their injuries, but they're an inconsistent bunch and you're never sure which team is going to show up. The New York Knicks appear to have right the ship lately, and they're winning their last five games by an average of 7.4 points while allowing 40.8 percent shooting from the field. The Knicks are more than capable of grinding out a victory here. Give me the points.
