The Knicks embark on a tough five-game road trip tonight, beginning in Golden State. The Western Conference is loaded with quality point guards, and the Knicks will get a heavy dose of them this week. First, there’s the rematch with the Warriors and Stephen Curry. Then Melo leads the Knicks into Denver to face Ty Lawson and the run-and-gun Nuggets. Later this week, the Knicks head to the Rose Garden in Portland to face  Rookie of the Year candidate, Damian Lilliard.

Let’s check out the point guard match ups and how the Knicks will need to defend each differently.
