The New York Knicks season is over. The team has missed the playoffs again, and are having a tough time digging themselves out of the Eastern Conference cellar. The Cleveland Cavaliers are in the postseason again, and have won the division. LeBron James continues to get Cleveland fans what they want.
The last time the Knicks and Cavaliers took the court against each other, was April 9th. The Cavaliers got the win, 123-109.
New York Knicks
The New York Knicks are a struggling group. The team was hit with several injuries this year, which led to them not making the postseason. The Knicks are 28-53 this season. The team sits 25 games under .500 on the year.
Aside from a ton of team injuries, the Knicks upper management has been terrible. The team has not been a playoff contender in years, and have been playing like trash the past several season. The teams best player in Kristaps Porzingus was averaging 22 points per game.
The Knicks are expected to get a top five pick in this years draft. Look for the Knicks to try and get the top pick this year. If they can do so, maybe they can become a team that could contend for a low seed playoff spot next season.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Knicks are allowing 108.1 points per game this season. That ranks the Knicks tied for 19th in points allowed per game this year. This is the last game of the season, so don’t expect a defensive effort from the Knicks in this one.
The Knicks are problably not going to be up for this matchup. Look for an effort, but it won’t be enough against the Cavaliers.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have a reason to celebrate this year. The team has won the Central division title again this season. The Cavaliers did not look like they had what it took to win the division this year, but managed to do so. LeBron James has been playing at an MVP caliber level again this year. He is the best in the world. There is no question.
What makes this season so unique, is that James have never played a full 82 game schedule. He will more than likely play the final game of the year, and that will mark him playing in every game this season. Not bad for a 33 year old superstar. James has a team this season that will contend again for an NBA Championship.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Cavaliers are allowing 109.9 points per game this season. That ranks the Cavaliers 27th in points allowed per game this season. Cleveland promises to get better defensively, but we know it’s hard to turn the switch on. The Cavaliers are the third worst team in points allowed per game. Hard to fix in less than a week.
