NEW YORK — Anthony Davis is not the only Knicks star who has found success playing in the Western Conference.
In fact, it is a sign of things to come for New York that the Knicks are a strong rebounding team, according to Anthony Davis’ agent, Michael Levin.
“I’m sure you guys have heard this a million times, but the Warriors were a good rebounding basketball team,” Levin said.
“They played a lot of good basketball.”
The Warriors are now 5-2 since they opened the season with a win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The win helped them move to 3-0 on the season and earn their third consecutive win, which puts them two wins away from tying the team record set in 2007-08.
The Warriors have won 17 of their last 18 games and have scored 107.5 points per game.
The Knicks, on the other hand, are 6-4 and are averaging 111.7 points per contest.
The Warriors have been outscored by 30.3 points per 100 possessions during that span, including by 29.3 in the last two games.
The Knicks and Warriors have each had two players with at least five blocks this season.
Davis is averaging 8.8 blocks per game, while forward Marcus Smart is averaging 5.7.
Davis, who was a first-round pick by the Warriors in the 2015 NBA Draft, said he hopes to find a way to play on a winning team.
“There’s a lot to be excited about right now,” he said.
“But if you ask me about my future, that’s a different story.”
