The Golden State Warriors look to extend their winning streak in the all-time series to 10 games when they host the New York Knicks on Tuesday. Golden State rolled to a 128-100 victory in New York on Oct. 26 for its 26th triumph in the last 32 meetings.
The Warriors have cranked up the offense to an average of 131 points over their last three games and knocked down 21 3-pointers in Saturday's 127-123 victory over Sacramento. However, Golden State has lost its last three home contests as it was routed by 26 points by the Los Angeles Lakers and dropped one-point overtime decisions to both Portland and Houston. The Knicks are 1-4 on their six-game road trip and have lost 14 of their last 16 contests after falling 111-101 to the Trail Blazers on Monday. "I felt like the first three games of this new year, we have really come out to compete on the road and really fight to give ourselves a chance to win on the road, and hopefully we can keep building off of it," New York coach David Fizdale told reporters after the loss to Portland.

ABOUT THE KNICKS (10-30): Emmanuel Mudiay (17 points) and Noah Vonleh (16, 14 rebounds) were the only starters who scored in double digits against the Trail Blazers. Vonleh, who matched his career high for points, has collected 10 or more rebounds in seven of his last eight games while the double-double was his 13th of the season and came against the team with which he played parts of three seasons. "I was happy for Noah Vonleh coming back and showing he belongs in this league," Fizdale told reporters. "Mudiay is continuing to grow and develop."
ABOUT THE WARRIORS (26-14): Stephen Curry drained 10 3-pointers while scoring 42 points against the Kings and is averaging 37 over his last three games. Curry has made 20 shots from beyond the arc over his last three contests and enjoyed the matchup versus Sacramento as the two teams combined for an NBA-record 41 3-pointers. "It's a fun way to play, especially when you're shooting a high percentage," Curry told reporters. "You can shoot as many 3s as you want to, but shooting a high percentage the way it was on both ends was pretty crazy."
1. The Warriors have won the last four home meetings and 14 of the last 16.
