The New York Knicks and the Golden State Warriors do battle at the Chase Center on Friday night.
The New York Knicks have been on a nice run as they’ve won four of their past six games overall and they will be gunning for a third straight victory after sneaking past the Nuggets in a 106-103 road win on Wednesday. Julius Randle led the way with 34 points, 11 rebounds and four assists, Jalen Brunson added 21 points with seven assists while Derrick Rose chipped in with 13 points off the bench. As a team, the Knicks shot 44 percent from the field and eight of 34 from the 3-point line as they trailed the Nuggets for most of the game before they held the Nuggets to just 19 points in the fourth quarter to escape with the narrow win. To be fair, the Nuggets were severely shorthanded as they were without Nikola Jokic.
Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors have really been struggling lately as they’ve lost seven of their past 10 games and they will be hoping to bounce back after getting scorched by the Suns in a 130-119 road loss on Wednesday. Stephen Curry led the way with 50 points, nine rebounds and six assists on 17 of 28 shooting, Klay Thompson added 19 points while Andrew Wiggins chipped in with 14 points. As a team, the Warriors shot 45 percent from the field and 18 of 42 from the 3-point line which was enough to hang in the contest, but the Warriors just needed more from JaMychal Green who scored just two points on one of seven shooting and Jordan Poole who scored just two points on zero of five shooting.
Looking at the betting trends, the Knicks are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games, 0-3-1 ATS in their last four games against a team with a losing record and 1-5 ATS in their last six games following a win. The Warriors are 16-6 ATS in their last 22 home games, 5-1 ATS in their last six games following a loss of more than 10 points and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games overall
Head to head, the over is 4-1 in the last five meetings in Golden State and the Knicks are 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings in Golden State.
The Knicks are at full strength for this one except for Mitchell Robinson who is still out with a knee injury, while the Warriors are keeping an eye on Jonathan Kuminga who is questionable with an illness. The Knicks have started to turn things around in recent games, but they were far from convincing in their narrow win over the depleted Nuggets on Wednesday. The Warriors have been struggling so far this season, but I’m sure they will come out swinging after getting routed in their last outing. This should be a close one, but the Warriors are 16-6 ATS in their last 22 home games and I think they can bounce back with a win and cover here.
