NY Knicks vs Cleveland Cavs by AlexP
Carmelo and the Knicks ruined the return of James in Cleveland as they took the season opener by winning 90-95. James had an aweful game only scoring 5/15. Well, since then, things have changed. Cleveland started very slow but currently they are on a 4 consecutive winning streak. All 4 at home. Its time to do that on the road too. And why not tonight in New York?
Last game Cleveland played they won against the Bucks beeing down double digits in the second half. However, bench didnt contribute much, so that has to improve for them. Only Miller scored two important 3p when they needed it. Final score was 111-108. Cleveland failed to cover the spread of -8.5p. But that did not bother me, because i have seen the bucks this season and they play very good ball. Much better than expected at the start fo the season.
Well, Knicks are worse that the Bucks right now and nothin is going their way. Not even with Calderons return after injury. They lost at home against the Nets 93-98 but the referee ignored a timeout call my Fisher when Carmelo had the ball and time enough to draw the game. In the end, he missed the 3p attempt and the Knicks lost once more. 5 in a row now. And there is nothing that seems to improve. Nothin that makes me think that they have a chance here.
Maybe a moral fact could help them, but not tonight. Its Clevelands turn to start to pick thinks up on the road too, so against a poor rival like New York it shouldnt be that hard. Odds have drops from 8.5 to 7.5 in a couple of hours. I still think 7.5 is much so i take of a point and play Cleveland -6. No more time to waist for Cleveland, no more inconsistent playes here for them. If they want to make it to the Playoffs, they have to win this type of games. No more gambling around, time to show what they are made of on the court.
I hope they are able to cover the spread and move to Toronto tomorrow to play the Raptors.
Both teams will be on a back to back here as the Knicks play tomorrow in Charlotte against the Hornets who are currently on a very bad streak too.
Good luck and lets go Cavs!!
