Lebron part deux. Eight days ago, his appearance in New York generated reams of publicity and some controversy, along with a very solid 26 point outing in only 30 minutes of action. I have a feeling that he will look to put up some big numbers tonight to keep the hometown fans happy.
Those Cleveland fans have a lot to be happy about these days. The Cavs are firmly in control of the Central division and are the second best team in basketball right now with a +11 efficiency differential. Although they play at only 23rd fastest pace in the league, they field the best offense in the NBA, a significant improvement over last year.
After last night’s game against the Trailblazers this will be a big test for the Knicks. It’s hard to expect much, but I think that at the very least we can count on them playing hard, one of the things which is making me proud to be a Knicks fan again.
