How to watch Knicks vs. Cavaliers basketball game
New York (home) vs. Cleveland (away)
Current Records: New York 2-7; Cleveland 3-5
What to Know
The Cleveland Cavaliers are 13-2 against the New York Knicks since November of 2015, and they'll have a chance to extend that success on Sunday. Cleveland is staying on the road, facing off against New York at 7:30 p.m. ET at Madison Square Garden. The point spread is more or less neutral, so fans should expect a close matchup.
Cleveland had enough points to win and then some against the Washington Wizards last Friday, taking their game 113-100. Cleveland C Tristan Thompson looked sharp as he dropped a double-double on 21 points and 12 boards.
Meanwhile, New York came out on top in a nail-biter against the Dallas Mavericks, sneaking past 106-102.
Their wins bumped the Cavaliers to 3-5 and New York to 2-7. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: The Cavaliers have allowed their opponents to shoot 47.50% from the floor on average, which is the fifth highest shooting percentage allowed in the league. But the Knicks have only been able to knock down 42.40% percent of their shots, which is the second lowest field goal percentage in the league. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
