I'm going with plus 5... here's why:

Eddy Curry is a wildcard on New York. And, something tells me, that he still see's Golden State as a gimmie game (like most of the uneducated league). And when Curry doesn't have to work hard, he comes out swinging. Which is why I predict he'll score about 6 or 8 points in the first half and then be done when he realizes that Golden State is a tougher team than he expected. As always, Marbury is gonna score 20 points against us, but I only see him grabbing 5 or 6 assists. Quentin and Jason will turn the game into a shoot-out at some point (with JRich coming out on top). And Jamal Crawford will have a sub-standard showing against the Warriors. Combined with the fact that the Knicks have a crappy bench and they're still adjusting to Larry Brown (with the fact that Golden State's hungry for a win after that one-point heartbreak against Chicago), I see the Warriors by around 5.

Big game for Jason again (he's been hot lately), I see Baron vs Marbury fueling Davis' will for a big game, and (seeing as New York's power forward is 60 year old Antonio Davis), Troy Murphy will have his way on the boards again. Hopefully, Mike will actually show up this game because I got a feeling that against Quentin and Crawford's sub-par defense, Mickael will get about 10 or 12 points and get everyone here will be clamoring for him to start if Mike doesn't come up big (which is an unfair call because Mickael's offense against a bad defense isn't a good game to go off of for this). Fisher will also have about 5 assists this game and Foyle will get 2 blocks. And, with what I think of New York's bad front court, Chris Taft may earn big minutes, too. Warriors by 5.

Yeah, I'm also going with +5. The Warriors are much better than New York, this should be a blowout. And the Warriors come from a defeat, so they'll be hungry.

Only think that worries me is that New York still hasn't won. They have to do it sooner than later. Hope is not against us.

I dunno about blowing the fourth quarter... he'll probably have a good game, overall.

if that's true, they probably feel the need to rest baron. playing back-to-back earlier this week has gotta be tough on his hamstring. NY at this time is probably one fo the easier games we'll have this season. brown's still testing his people out, and we have depth to rest baron.
anyone notice if miles played in chicago? i didn't see him on the court at all
