Cleveland Cavaliers vs. New York Knicks gamethread

Happy Game 1 Saturday.

NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers at Orlando Magic Jeremy Reper-USA TODAY Sports

A few small things to watch today:

  • How does Isaac Okoro move? He’s been off for a while and dealing with a knee injury. Cleveland needs Okoro to be right to be at its best.
  • How does Julius Randle look? It’s entirely unclear where he’s at coming off of an ankle injury. The Cavs have to assume he’s going to be right, though.
  • Who guards Donovan Mitchell most? Guessing it’ll be Josh Hart, but Quentin Grimes and others will get looks too.
