Cleveland Cavaliers vs. New York Knicks Preview

Kyrie begins his ascent.

So this. This is a game. It's just so.... game-like. The gamey quality of this game is just superb.

But kinda seriously, this game means basically nothing. But hey, basketball is fun, so we watch it anyways! Whoo!

Song of the Day: Superman - Goldfinger



Tonight's Overview:


With Milwaukee's loss last night to the Indiana Pacers, the Knicks are a lock for the playoffs, thus eliminating any chance of the Cavs spoiling anyone's playoff hopes tonight. The Knicks are getting back Amare Stoudemire from injury for the first time in weeks, so it will be interesting to see how his return affects the Knicks' defensive prowess, as well as Carmelo Anthony's recent scoring tear in which he's put a ton of shots.

It will be fun to watch Kyrie Irving as always. His return was very refreshing last game, as it was a nice reprieve from the abysmal basketball we've seen during his absence. Even though the Cavs lost, Kyrie reminded everyone of how much better he is at basketball than anyone else on the Cavs, even though he didn't put up a crazy stat line.

Tristan Thompson exploded in the first half last game for 12 points, and it was mostly due to the presence of Kyrie. That first half gave me great hope for the future. It was exactly how we want those two to play consistently coming into next season.
