No, because Gallinari is a small forward. He's usually guarded by strong, athletic players 6-6 to 6-9. He's usually not defended by skinny point guards who exert most of their energy on offense.

And the Warriors failed to play defense against the Knicks, even in their win in New York. They allowed 116 points, in that game.
