Joes Pick To Cover The Spread

The return of Steph Curry was huge for the Warriors on Saturday, as they picked up a much needed win over the Lakers. Now, they are tied for the 9th seed in the West and will need to pick up a win if they want to gain ground on the Suns, who lost yesterday in Milwaukee. On the other side, the Knicks have rattled off three straight wins. I’m going with the Warriors at home in this one, as they ride the momentum of Curry being back in the lineup.
