Pacific Division titans dealing with rare slump

Pacific Division titans dealing with rare slump

Golden State has dropped consecutive contests for the first time since April 2015. Can Steve Kerr steer his club back in the right direction against the Knicks?

The two teams will butt heads this afternoon, with a 3:30 p.m. ET tip at Madison Square Garden. Online sports book Bovada.lv gives the Warriors odds of -625 to take care of business on the road. Conversely, New York represents a +275 underdog.

On Friday, the Dubs scored a season-low 87 points in Chicago. Stephen Curry shot a putrid 10 of 27 from the field, while Klay Thompson missed 10 of his 11 long-range attempts. The visitors also committed an uncharacteristic 15 turnovers.

Nevertheless, the defending Western Conference champs remain first in the league in scoring, point differential, assists, steals and blocks. That’s sobering news for the Knicks, who are coming off a 105-102 loss to Philadelphia. New York (25-37) sits five games behind Detroit for the last playoff spot in the East.

The host squad does catch a break insofar as it needn’t worry about containing Kevin Durant (sprained MCL and bone bruise) here. Still, we guarantee Golden State (50-11) is feeling particularly ornery at the moment. Jeff Hornacek’s troops just have the misfortune of being caught in the crosshairs.
