The New York Knicks took the lead in the first-round series with a 99-79 rout of the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 3 on Friday. Game 4 is a matinee affair with the home team seeking to extend their lead and put the Cavs in a win-or-go-home situation.

All time the Knicks have the advantage of winning 119 of the 223 matches versus the Cavaliers. Last season, the teams played three times with the Cavaliers sweeping those three contests. The teams have played nine times in the postseason with the Knicks winning eight of those series.
In a similar fashion to the opener of the series the young Cavs got a taste of the postseason Mecca for the first time and it definitely appeared they were shellshocked.
In particular, Darius Garland had a tough outing shooting 4 of 21 and had as many turnovers (3) as he did assists. Donovan Mitchell was the only Cav to score 20 or more points (22).
Both teams shot abysmally, especially from the perimeter where Cleveland shot 7 of 33 or 21.2 percent.
Offensively, Cleveland scores 112.3 points per game ranking 25th while shooting 48.8% from the field and 36.7% on the perimeter ranking fifth and 12th respectively.
Overall, Cleveland tops the league for opponent scoring limiting foes to an average of 106.9 points per game. Cavs opponents shoot 46.8% from the field and 36.8% from deep ranking seventh and 23rd.
To summarize the injury report…
- Dylan Windler, SF (OUT—foot)
New York Knicks
After a rough start to the series, R.J. Barrett made an impact immediately in Game 3, connecting on two 3-pointers and getting to the rim for easy buckets or dimes to his teammates.
As noted both teams struggled from deep with Julius Randle, Jalen Brunson and Quinten Grimes (prior to injuring his shoulder) shooting 2 of 17 from deep.
As can be seen, the Knicks are one of the best defensive teams in the association they limit opponents to 113.1 points which is 13th-ranked while possessing the third-best opponent field goal percentage of 46.2% and also ranks 12th for opponent perimeter percentage of 35.7%.
So far, offensively, the Knicks score 116 points per game ranking 11th while shooting 46.7% from the field and 35.4% from the perimeter ranking 20th and 19th respectively.

Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction:
Expect the Cavs youngsters to be better prepared for Game 4, but by the same token fans at MSG will be even louder. The concern for J.B. Bickerstaff is Randle (3 of 15) should be expected to have a bounce-back effort in Game 4.
Donovan Mitchell was born in New York so the other thing to keep an eye on is Thibs putting double-teams on him because the star will want to make an impression at home and he’s less likely to rely on Garland as he did in Game 2.
Most concerning for Cleveland is the reserve unit which was outscored 39 to 14.
Frequent readers know I haven’t bought into the Cavs all season and while the Knicks also have shortcomings I like them to take a stranglehold on the series.
