The Cavaliers have struggled to start the season. As much as they have not looked very harmonious it is not like they are of to an epically bad start and history tells us that when teams try and jame their pieces together it can take a little while for the formula to set. Disappointment for bettors but overall not much to worry about.
The Knicks hardly have it figured out but it looks like the exit of of Carmelo Anthony was addition by subtraction. They might be finally on the path to respectability.
Others can say and do what they want but a motivated LeBron James is still the most dominant player in the league. When the Wizards pissed him off all he did was drop 50+ on Washington in a convincing win. Unfortunately we do not see a ton of that guy.
Beyond LeBron only Kevin Love has been reliable. It was expected that he would have a chance to increase production after Kyrie Irving left but his numbers are actually a little bit down.
Cleveland has a ton of depth this season but it is kind of funny that their starters beyond those two are not providing much. They have lots of ways they can look for production though whether it be Kyle Korver or Jeff Green, Jae Crowder ans more.
The biggest weakness of the group is that it has been terrible on defense. This is an older group too so it is hard to see how they are going to correct that in a big way.
It seems like motivation is going to be a big factor for this team throughout this season. That makes it very hard to handicap how they are going to do from game to game.
New York Knicks
New York has been a very pleasant surprise this season, especially since they are not a very deep or talented team beyond Kristaps Porzingis. Porzingis is having a breakout season, averaging 30ppg with his combination of length and shooting. Next step is being a more willing passer.
What has helped Porzingis is the addition of Enes Kanter inside. Kanter is not flashy but he can score and he rebounds every night. He is averaging 13 and 10 for this team and he can keep that up all season long.
The hard thing for New York is getting reliable production on the perimeter. They gave a lot of money to Tim Hardaway Jr. and even though he is second on the team in scoring his efficiency has been terrible. Courtney Lee is a little better but that is hardly a duo to get excited about on the wing.

Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction:
What you are going to get from Cleveland from game to game is hard to know. If they play well they can blowy by this number, even on the road.
I am still inclined to go with their depth and talent over that of New York’s. Maybe the Knicks are not going to be terrible but that doesn’t mean to go crazy on them.
