The Knicks return home after a tough road trip to host the Cleveland Cavaliers, who are having an eerily similar season to the Knicks. Both teams were expected to be awful and yet, so far, both Cleveland and the Knicks have been mediocre more than bad. The Cavs are currently tied for the #6 seed and the Knicks are tied for the #8 seed right now.
Soo…if the Knicks win tonight, they probably go into sole possession of the #8 seed in the East (as of, you know, roughly 30% of the season completed). So that’s something!
After getting beaten every which way but loose in the West, I think a return East is just what the doctor ordered and the Knicks will knock the Cavaliers under .500 tonight.
Let’s go, getting closer to .500, Knicks!
