Following the deadline deal that brought Baron Davis to Cleveland in exchange for Mo Williams, Cavalier fans have been eagerly awaiting the two-time All Star's debut. It appears the wait is over. Head coach, Byron Scott, announced today that Baron Davis will likely play for the first time in wine and gold when the Cavaliers take on the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden, this Friday night. Davis is averaging 12.8 points and 7 assists per game but also looks to bring valuable veteran leadership to one of the youngest teams in the league.
Semih Erden will have to wait a few more games before he makes his Cavs debut as Coach Scott says he is bothered by a shoulder injury and not yet in game shape. Fellow newcomer, Luke Harangody, made his first appearance against the Spurs on Wednesday night but left after only 8 minutes with a hip injury.
The Cavaliers travel to New York City to face Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks this Friday night at 7:30 PM ET. The Cavaliers beat the Knicks 115-109 in their last meeting on February 25th at Quicken Loans Arena.
