The Knicks are currently heating up, winning seven straight games. This only means that the Knicks head into this game confidently, especially that their opponent will be without their star. During their last game against the Pacers, they actually rallied behind, and had 19 lead changes in total. Their last match is a hard-earned win, especially they are doing it on the road. As they face a tougher opponent, they are very lucky to do it at home. Currently, they are 7-7 at home, so they only have a little advantage coming into this game. It was their hot shooting that brings them victory on their last game, which they want to bring in this game. They are currently the 25th offensively with 114.1 points per game, and the 14th in defense, allowing 112.2 points per game.

On their last game, it was Jalen Brunson who lead the Knicks to victory with 30 points. Julius Randle on the other hand provided 25 points, along with 14 rebounds. RJ Barrett also provided, chipping in 24 points for the Knicks.

The Warriors are lucky to win their last match, even without Stephen Curry, who is indefinitely out due to his injury. Their win against the Raptors is a proof that they are still a capable team without Curry. However, they need to earn more wins because they are currently one of those who are at the bottom of their standings. That win against the Raptors ended the losing streak of the Warriors. It was actually their first win in their last five games. For this match, they are hoping to continue on winning, so they can finally have a good momentum and win their future matches. This squad is currently the 1st in the league when it comes to offense, as they average 117.3 points per game. Additionally, they are the 26th, as they surrender 116.6 points per game.

Despite the absence of Curry, this squad is lucky that there are several guys who are stepping up for his absence. During their last match, Jordan Poole stepped up big time, scoring his career-high 43 points. Klay Thompson and Draymond Green also contributed 17 points apiece, giving a victory for the Warriors.
