Update — The Warriors have landed in New York and are making their way to the team hotel, so there shouldn’t be any snags in Tuesday night’s game at MSG.
The Golden State Warriors are scheduled to face the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday, with tip-off schedule for 7:30 p.m. ET on TNT. This is all assuming the Warriors can overcome travel delays and actually get to the Big Apple.
The team was scheduled to fly out of Indianapolis following Monday’s game against the Pacers. However, mechanical delays resulted in the team having to stay overnight in Indiana, per Marcus Thompson. The CBA frowns upon same-day travel but does not include an express prohibition.
However, a Tuesday delay in Indianapolis had the team still waiting to leave at 10 a.m. ET. Just ask Draymond Green!
Now a Delay?? Wow! As the story is told it gets greater and greater… However…— Draymond Green (@Money23Green) December 14, 2021
GAMEDAY!!!! Rah rah rah!! GAS UP!!!!!!
This article is publishing right about 10:15 a.m., which means the game is just over nine hours away. Even if the team left right now, they wouldn’t get to New York until probably close to noon. That’s a sub-optimal turnaround for the Warriors.
Golden State is a five-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook.
