Free throws, fouls will be key to Warriors finally winning on road

What will be biggest factor to Warriors winning on the road originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

SAN FRANCISCO — The Warriors in their 111-101 win over the New York Knicks on Friday night at Chase Center enjoyed their most complete win of the season. That was true for both sides of the ball.

Back home in front of Dub Nation, the Warriors had six players score in double figures, including Steph Curry (24), Klay Thompson (20) and Andrew Wiggins (20) all scoring 20 or more points. As a team, the Warriors shot 45.1 percent from the field and 36 percent on 3-pointers while holding the Knicks to 34.5 percent overall and 26.5 from long distance.

In the win, the Warriors shot 14 fewer free throws than the Knicks. They also were outscored by 21 points at the charity stripe. Overall, the Warriors were called for 10 more fouls than their opponent.

At one point in the first quarter, the Knicks had scored only eight points on made shots and had nine points at the free-throw line. It’s the only thing that kept the Knicks in the game at all.

Through the first 16 games of the regular season, the 7-9 Warriors have been hurt in major ways for their inability to defend without fouling and their lack of trips to the free-throw line. Winning that battle will be key to the Warriors’ next two games, both on the road, after losing their first eight games away from San Francisco this season.

The Houston Rockets, who the Warriors play Sunday at the Toyota Center, are scoring only 107.9 points per game, which ranks 29th in the NBA. Houston also is 29th in field goal percentage (43.5 percent), but the Rockets’ offense is near the top in one category: Free throws. They rank fourth in free…
