This game features a surprisingly slumping Cavs team against the dysfunctional Knicks.
The Cavaliers have turned things around and won 3 of 4. While the Knicks are 2-2 in their last 4.
Cleveland has won both games so far in this season series, and 8 in a row overall.
The Cavaliers, even with their struggles, are still the best team in the Eastern Conference.
Lebron James has always put on top performances at the Garden, and I don’t expect this game to be any different. In the first two games against New York this season he put up a triple double, and had 25 points, 7 assists and 6 rebounds in the other.
I expect James to be dominant in the Garden, and finish with 30 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds.
With their inability to guard elite point guards, Kyrie Irving should put on a scoring clinic against the Knicks. In the first two games of the season series Irving has scored 28 and 29 points. Irving is one of the best scoring guards in the league and can put up 50 points on any given night, so he should get 25 points against the weak Knicks perimeter defense.
Kevin Love has played like the All Star forward he was in Minnesota this season. Love has earned an All Star nod and is an excellent #3 scoring option for the Cavaliers. He is averaging 19 points and 11 rebounds per game.
While he has been dealing with a lingering back issue and has missed the last couple of games, he should get the nod against New York.
New York Knicks
Carmelo Anthony helped lead the Knicks to victory against in city rival Brooklyn, finishing with 15 points and 3 rebounds. Anthony has been on a scoring tear recently, highlighted by his 45 point effort in a 3 point loss to Atlanta Tuesday night.
If Anthony can get into an early scoring groove then the Knicks may be able to pull off the upset.
Kristaps Porzingis was dominant against the Nets, and continues to get more shots in the Knicks offense. He is clearly the #2 scoring option and should become the go to guy for the Knicks as the season winds down. The double double (19 points 12 rebounds) was the first for Porzingis in 10 games.
This won’t be an easy task for Porzingis, as he faces one of the best low post defenders in Tristan Thompson, but I do expect the 2nd year big to get 15 points and 10 rebounds for his second straight double double performance.
The Knicks defense has been atrocious during the last 10 games. They have given up 103 or more points in 8 of the last 10 games and I don’t expect this one to be any different.
Cleveland’s playmaker have All NBA talent on the offensive side of the court and the Knicks have a defense that resembles lay up lines. This will be one of the toughest tasks the Knicks will face all season.
