The New York Knicks (21-26) will take part in their third outing of a five-game West Coast trip when they take on the Golden State Warriors (37-10) on Tuesday at Oracle Arena.

The Knicks have alternated a loss with a win in each of their last five games. Their most recent game on Sunday was a poor defensive effort as they fell 127-107 to the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers scored at least 30 points in each quarter and shot 56.0 percent from the field. New York was led by Tim Hardaway Jr., Kristaps Porzingis, and Michael Beasley who each scored 17.

Entering Saturday, Golden State had won four straight games and nine out of their last 10. The Houston Rockets got the best of them though on Saturday though with a 116-108 win. The Warriors trailed by just one after three quarters but only mustered together 17 points in the final 12 minutes. Kevin Durant led the team with 26 points.

What to know

Despite losing both games, the Knicks did a fairly good job not allowing Stephen Curry to get in the rhythm last season.

He finished 14-38 from the field and 7-21 from three-point territory in the two games against New York. In his 14 career games against the Knicks though, he has made over half his threes (62-122).

With reigning Defensive Player of the Year Draymond Green covering him much of the time, Kristaps Porzingis has had limited success against the Warriors in his career.

In four meetings with Golden State, Porzingis is only averaging 12 points per game on 32.1 percent field goal shooting.

The Warriors are easily the best shooting team in the NBA shooting a robust 50.9 percent from the field on the year. That number has gone up a bit as they have connected on 51.4 percent of their field goals in their ten games in January.
