New York Knicks (23-29) at Golden State Warriors (24-29), 10:30 p.m. (Sports Network) - The New York Knicks wrap up a three-game road trip when they visit the Golden State Warriors tonight at ORACLE Arena.
Both teams play their final game before the All-Star break. The 2007 NBA All- Star Game will be played on February 18th at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.
New York tries to close out the swing with two straight wins. Jamal Crawford fed Eddy Curry with the go-ahead alley-oop jam with 7.1 seconds left, as the Knicks completed a season sweep of the Lakers with a 107-106 victory on Tuesday at the Staples Center.
Crawford ended with 24 points and Quentin Richardson tallied 19 points and 12 rebounds for the Knicks, who also beat Los Angeles, 99-94, on January 30th at Madison Square Garden. Curry had 19 points and Channing Frye netted 14 for New York, which has won three of its last four games overall.
The Knicks are 10-16 on the road this season.
Golden State tries to halt a two-game losing streak. On Monday, Carmelo Anthony scored 28 points and pulled down eight rebounds, as the Denver Nuggets knocked off the Warriors, 123-111, at the Pepsi Center.
Stephen Jackson, who arrived late to the Monday's game after attending a trial in Indianapolis after being hit by a car, ended with nine points in 19 minutes of action. Monta Ellis scored 14 points in the loss to Denver for the Warriors, while Matt Barnes netted 13 in defeat.
Prior to the game against the Nuggets, it was disclosed that Warriors' two- time All-Star guard Baron Davis would undergo arthroscopic knee surgery and was out indefinitely.
The Warriors are a solid 18-9 at home this season.
This is the first of two meetings between the squads in 2006-07. The Knicks are scheduled to host the Warriors on March 2nd at Madison Square Garden.
New York has lost three straight after winning its last six at the Warriors. The Warriors have won three in a row in the series.
