Warriors at Knicks 7:30PM ET
The 4-1 Warriors head to Madison Square Garden to take on the New York Knicks. Knicks are 1-4 and have gotten off to a slow start, and the Warriors only loss came to the Denver Nuggets on the road (last Sunday). Warriors are still without “Boogie” Cousins, who is still out with an Achilles injury. So far this season, Steph Curry is averaging 34 points, 7 assists and 5 rebounds, and Tim Hardaway Jr. is averaging 24 points and 4 rebounds.
Warriors are hands down the team to beat this year in the NBA and the Knicks are going to have their hands full tonight at the Garden. Knicks only win came in the first game of the year against the Hawks and Knicks have dropped 4 games straight. Knicks are patiently waiting on the return of their star player Kristaps Porzingis. Porzingis tore his ACL last February and is still won’t return for another 1-2 months. There is no real timetable and the Knicks do not want to force his return.
Betting the Friday night game
- 4-0 ATS in their last four vs. Eastern Conference rivals
- 4-1 ATS in their last five games following an ATS win
- 4-1 ATS in their last five games playing on one day rest
- 1-5 ATS in their last six vs. Western Conference rivals
ATS stands for against the spread
Vegas predicts that the Warriors will win this game right around 12 points, and I think they will win by more than 12 (I mean do you really want to bet against Curry when he is doing this). Warriors just have too much firepower on offense
and the Knicks don’t have enough scoring to keep up with Curry, Durant and Thompson. I see the Warriors winning this one with a final score of 125-108. Pick- Warriors -12
