Cleveland Cavaliers-New York Knicks Game 3 gamethread

It’s Friday night Cavs basketball at Madison Square Garden.

NBA: Playoffs-New York Knicks at Cleveland Cavaliers Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

A few things to watch tonight:

  • How much Isaac Okoro play? Does he start? He had a very short leash in Game 2.
  • How much does Danny Green play? Based on Game 2, 15-20 minutes feels about right for Green.
  • How do the Knicks adjust to what the Cavs did in Game 2 in trapping Jalen Brunson and making him defend? That strategy worked and could work again. But there has to be an adjustment coming back from the Knicks’ side to get Brunson going.
  • Will the Cavs handle the Madison Square Garden Crowd well? It’s going to be loud. It’s going to be intense. Let’s see how the Cavs handle it.
