NBA Preview from The Sports Network
Friday, November 13th (All times eastern)
Golden State Warriors (2-5) at New York Knicks (1-8), 7:30 p.m.
(Sports Network) - The New York Knicks have lost five straight games since their only win of the season on November 2, and will wrap up a three-game homestand Friday versus the Golden State Warriors at Madison Square Garden.
The Knicks, who topped New Orleans last week for their only victory of 2009-10, fell to 0-2 on the homestand following Wednesday's 114-101 setback versus the Atlanta Hawks. Al Harrington had 23 points and 12 rebounds off the bench for the Knicks, who also got 23 points from Toney Douglas.
Wilson Chandler and Larry Hughes each ended with 14 points for New York.
"Things are just going in the wrong direction for us right now. But we can change things," Hughes said. "The best way to get us a win is watching a lot of film, watching a lot of tape, and breaking the game down."
Knicks guard Nate Robinson (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game.
Meanwhile, Golden State has dropped three of four games and began a five-game road trip with Wednesday's 108-94 loss at Indiana.
Corey Maggette and fellow reserve Anthony Randolph compiled 21 and 17 points, respectively, for the Warriors, who received 13 rebounds from Randolph and were coming off Monday's lopsided 146-105 victory over Minnesota.
"I want to win," Randolph said. "I'm not focused on just offense. I'm just focused on going out there and playing hard, playing aggressive."
The Warriors will also visit the Bucks, Cavs and Celtics on the trek. In injury news for Golden State, Maggette is probable for Friday's game because of a sore hamstring.
Golden State and New York split a pair of meetings a season ago, while the Warriors have won three of four and 11 of the last 14 matchups between the clubs. These two teams have split the last 10 contests at MSG.
