The Cavaliers cooled the Knicks down a degree or two on Monday night at Madison Square Garden. New York’s first chance to rebound will be on Wednesday against an underwhelming Utah Jazz team.
The Jazz were off to a slow start without Gordon Hayward before Rudy Gobert went down with a leg injury. Now its best player won’t even be reevaluated for another month and Utah is left with a bunch of players who can do some things but have never led an NBA team.
One of the few guys who led his college team is Rodney Hood. Hood was moved to the bench after a slow start and the fast emergence of Donovan Mitchell but he’s still been getting 30+ minutes a night. He’s been steadily improving over his last four games, with 19, 19, 19 and 16 for point totals.
Then there’s Mitchell, who looks like he could be the next dynamic ball of energy on the perimeter, a la Victor Oladipo or Russell Westbrook light. He’s still not a consistent shooter but brings energy on both ends of the floor and will soon usurp Ricky Rubio as the offense’s lead playmaker.
New York Knicks
The Knicks had better than a 99 percent chance of winning the game last night when they had a 22-point lead late in the third quarter. The Cavs trimmed it to 15 and it hovered there until about the eight-minute mark when Cleveland made a deeper run and got even with four minutes to go.
LeBron James hit some big shots, including the go-ahead three over Porzingis that put Cleveland in front for good. It was a battle all night long after the comments James made about the Knicks’ draft and Enes Kanter. But now the Knicks have to move on.
They are a Porzingis injury from being in a lot of trouble. And even if he stays healthy, he’s going to wear down as the season presses on. But for now, the Knicks look like a competent basketball team.
Kanter does a lot on both ends and plays tough. Tim Hardaway Jr. looks like the guy the Knicks thought they were getting in free agency and Porzingis is about as important as James Harden for Houston or Giannis for the Bucks.

Free Utah Jazz vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction: both teams get up and down and it goes over.
The Jazz have a tendency to play some really low-scoring games, which keeps the total fairly low in most instances. Utah has been getting up and down more often without Gobert and I suspect this game could get free-flowing with Hood and Mitchell pushing and taking quick shots.
