Golden State Starting 5
New York City Starting 5
The Knicks are going in Oracle Arena to take their 5th win on the season. The knicks lost the last outing and has a chance to split 1-1. The warriors are without all star PF and Ex-Knick David Lee who is nursing an elbow injury. This game is a Must Win. The knicks are also without guard Kelenna Azubuike who came to NYC this offseason. We definitely can pull this one out. I call it, Knicks by 15
