Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Golden State Warriors vs New York Knicks
The Knicks will begin their three-game homestand as they will welcome the Warriors to Madison Square Garden. The Knicks will be looking to bounce back after a blow out loss against the Heat while the Warriors will keep their momentum going after blowing out the Wizards at home. Game tips off at 7:30 PM ET.
Golden State Warriors's Latest Performance :
The Warriors are coming off an impressive home win as they were able to blow out the Wizards at home. Leading the charge was Stephen Curry who had a career night he lit up the board with 51 points including 11 three-pointers. Curry opened things up early with a 23-point first quarter, including 16 points in less than a three-minute span, and he was living in the zone after that. It’s an unbelievable performance made even more impressive by the fact that he’s hit 10+ triples in 10 games throughout his career, the most in NBA history. Kevin Durant had himself a night as well as he dropped a quiet 30 point effort him and Curry combined for 81 against the Wizards. The Warriors are unstoppable when of their All-Stars gets it going from the floor and bear in mind they got Klay Thompson who is also a great shooter he finished the game with 19 points of his own. Playing against the Knicks I expect a similar performance in the Garden as expect the three ball to be flying left and right in this game.
New York Knicks 's Latest Performance :
The Knicks have now dropped four straight games after beating the Hawks in their season opener. The Knicks schedule doesn’t get much easier as they will play the red-hot Warriors who are rolling on offense at the moment. The Knicks had no answer for the Heat in their last time out losing to them in a blowout. They allowed Miami to shoot 48.1 percent and 44.8 percent on 3-pointers. Tim Hardaway Jr. was held to 14 points on 4-of-10 shooting on Wednesday, making two 3-pointers with three rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes. He will have to play at his best during this home-stand for the Knicks if they want to snap this 4 game losing streak. Damyean Dotson was the only bright spot on the Knicks in the blowout lost as he shot 8-of-14 from the floor and finished with 20 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. Playing against the Warriors they will have to do all they can defend the three-point line because they the team knows if Curry gets a glimpse of daylight he might light up the garden for yet another 50 point effort.

Against The Spread Selection: Golden State Warriors -11
My reason for the pick :
The Golden State Warriors should be able to steamroll past the Knicks as Curry is feeling from distance in these last few games and he will make sure that he puts up a great show for the fans in the garden. It is scary to see that the Warriors are already dominating teams we are only 5 games into the season. If the Warriors remain healthy I don’t see anyone beating them once Cousins comes back from injury it is game over for the NBA. This Warriors team has no weakness. For the Knicks, they will keep the game competitive at the beginning but they won’t be able to keep up with the Warriors.
