This is a matchup of two of the worse teams (record wise), in the league. The Knicks have lost 9 games in a row, while the Warriors have lost 8 of their last 10 games. The Warriors have been pitiful at home, going just 2-8. However, the Knicks have been even worse on the road, going 1-9. The Warriors have absolutely dominated this head to head series lately. The Warriors have won the last 10 matchups against the Knicks. Even with all the Warrior injuries, I'm going to side with Golden State at home. Final prediction, Warriors will win and cover at home, 109-103.
