Two teams with losing streaks at Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif., clash at the venue Tuesday night when the New York Knicks duel the Golden State Warriors.
The Knicks (10-30) will be making the final stop on a six-game trip highlighted by a 119-112 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night but that has seen the Knicks lose four games, including Monday night at Portland, 111-101.
That loss to the Trail Blazers came despite double-doubles from Enes Kanter (18 points, 14 rebounds) and Noah Vonleh (16 points, 14 rebounds).
The Knicks will visit Golden State not only on the second night of a back-to-back and at the end of a 13-day trip, but also riding a four-game losing streak at the site.
What's more, including their 128-100 home shellacking in October, the Knicks have lost nine straight to the Warriors (26-14).
A visit to Oakland also means a homecoming for Knicks guard Tim Hardaway Jr. His dad, Tim Sr., was a member of the Warriors' popular "Run TMC" combination with Chris Mullin and Mitch Richmond in the 1990s. >> Read more
