The New York Knicks take on the defending NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers (still sounds weird to write that) tonight at 8:00 PM EST here in Madison Square Garden. It’s a rematch from opening night earlier this season, but the two teams that you’ll see will be incredibly different.
First, the Knicks are on a pretty damn good run if I can say so myself. The Knickerbockers are 7-3 in their last ten games and have played much better basketball than what we first saw in 2016. No, they’re not the “super team” we were promised by Derrick Rose, but they’re starting to gel pretty well. Speaking of Derrick Rose, the Knicks will probably be without their starting point guard who suffered back spasms halfway through last night’s game against the Miami Heat. But that just means Knicks fan will see more of Brandon Jennings, who’s quickly becoming our new favorite signing. Dude just likes to compete and ball. Defense, on the other hand, is not something he enjoys too much. And if the Knicks are going to get a win tonight, they’re going to need to figure that part of the game out.
Defending Kyrie Irving is nothing if not impossible. The only good news for Knicks fans in terms of injuries is that it’s looking like JR Smith is going to sit out tonight’s game and maybe a few others. “The Pipe” recently suffered a knee injury many thought would be worse than it was. Instead, he’s probably going to rest a few games and return when he’s 100%. These aren’t the playoffs. No need to risk anything.
But just because we’re not watching Finals basketball doesn’t mean tonight’s game won’t be fun to watch. Melo seems to be on a tear, Porzingis is astounding with rebrounding, and we’re finally playing like a team. The Knicks are definitely one of those teams that play up or down to their opponents, so expect to see their best against the Cavaliers tonight at 8:00 PM. Here’s how to watch it.
