2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Cavaliers

The Knicks welcome Lebron James and the traveling circus known as the Cleveland Cavaliers to Madison Square Garden tonight.

The Cavs are the most discombobulated team in first place in their Conference and winning seven of their last ten games. Yet there is something there. Whether just typical Lebron drama or not. The Cavs just lost to the Brooklyn Nets, so this game is ripe for the taking for the Knicks.

Let’s hope that Melo does so well tonight that Lebron insists on forming his Banana Boat Super Team this offseason! Since that’s never going to happen, I’ll “settle” for watching Melo, RoLo and Porzingis kick some major ass tonight and make the Cavs’ drama get even more, well, dramatic.

Let’s go, Knicks!
