The New York Knicks snapped a six-game losing streak Wednesday with a 113-106 victory over the Sacramento Kings. The Knicks (4-8) hope to keep the winning feeling tonight when they visit Golden State to take on the Warriors in the third game of a four-game West Coast swing.
"We have to get used to this feeling," Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire said. "We have to keep this swagger and this mentality and go on to the next one."
That will be easier said than done tonight at ORACLE Arena. The Warriors are 7-4 overall, but are 5-0 at home.
Golden State is led by Monta Ellis, who is averaging 26.5 points per game through the first 11 games. Stephen Curry averages 19.4 points and 6.1 assists per game for the Warriors.
Former Knick David Lee will not play. He has now undergone two procedures on his left elbow to treat an infection. Lee cut the elbow last week against the Knicks in a collision with Wilson Chandler. A piece of Chandler's tooth became lodged in the arm, and it became infected. Lee, averaging 14.3 points and a team-leading 11.3 rebounds, is not expected to play until at least early next week.
