The Golden State Warriors travel to the east coast to take on the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday. The Warriors are coming off of a 102-100 loss to the Charlotte Hornets on Saturday when they played without Stephen Curry, who was a late scratch because of an illness. They are hopeful the two-time NBA MVP will be healthy enough to play his usual minutes against the Knicks.
The Knicks have been on a roll the past two weeks, winning six of their previous nine contests, and are currently in seventh place in the East with a 15-16 record, just half a game behind the Boston Celtics for sixth place. They enter Tuesday’s game fresh off a 103-99 win against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday.
