On Sunday, the Cleveland Cavaliers head to New York for a game against the Knicks in a match up of two Eastern conference teams. In their last game, the Cavs were victorious in defeated the Washington Wizards by the score of 113-100. Tristan Thompson led the Cavs in points with 21 while shooting 8 of 12 from the field and 5 of 6 from the free throw line. Thompson also led the Cavs in rebounds on the night with 12, 9 coming offensively. Rookie Darius Garland led the Cavs in assists on the night as he recorded 6 in the game while also scoring 15 points.
The Cavs enter their game against the Knicks with a record of 3-5 and are currently 1-3 on the road this season. Kevin Love leads the Cavs in points per game with 18.5, assists per game with 3.9 and rebounds per game with 14.1. Tristian Thompson has been the Cavs leader in shot percentage so far this season and is shooting 55% from the field. Dylan Windler is the only Cleveland player listed on the injury report and is out for Sunday’s game.
The New York Knicks enter Sunday’s game after a win in their game against the Dallas Mavericks by the score of 106-102. Marcus Morris Sr. led the Knicks in points as he scored 29 on the night while shooting 10 of 22 from the field and 5 of 6 from the free throw line. Bobby Portis led the Knicks in rebounds recording 12 on the night to go along with scoring 14 points. The assists leader for the Knicks was Julius Randle who had 4 on the night and also scored 21 points.
With the win, the Knicks are now 2-7 on the season and will be looking forward to playing a game at home as 6 of their first 9 games of the season have been played on the road. Marcus Morris Sr had led the Knicks in points per game this season as he has scored 19.1 per game so far this season. Julius Randle has also been a big contributor for the Knicks this season as he has recorded 4.2 assists per game and 9.3 rebounds per game so far on the season and leads the team in both categories. The Knicks enter Sunday’s game with 3 players listed on their injury report as Elfrid Payton and Dennis Smith Jr. are listed as out and Mitchell Robinson is listed as day to day.
This will be a good game between these two teams as both will struggle with winning games all year so it’s a good opportunity to take advantage of playing another struggling team. Cleveland has scored 107 points per game this season while allowing 110.6 points per game. New York has scored 100.6 points per game this season and allowed 109.4 points per game. In their last 5 games, Cleveland is 2-4 while New York is 1-4 during the same stretch. This game could go either way, but I am going to go with the Cavs in this one due to the fact that I believe they have more talent than what the Knicks can defend. Cleveland wins 105-100.
