It has been a disappointing season for the New York Knicks. They currently sit out of the playoffs in the Eastern conference and must somehow make up five games with 20 left to make the eighth seed and with several teams to leap frog over to reach the Atlanta Hawks in the eighth seed its looks highly unlikely we will see the Knicks in the playoffs. The issue facing the Knicks is they have not defended well this season. Carmelo Anthony seems to be taking most of the blame for this poor season and its account on his status as the Knicks lone All Star representative on the court. The truth is New York’s supporting cast have not played very well this season on both ends of the court. Cleveland is fighting for the last playoff spot in the east and with a win can put some distance from New York and try to edge closer to teh Hawks. The Cavaliers are just 3 1/2 games behind Atlanta for a playoff spot. New York is just 10-20 straight up on the road this season. In their lone meeting this season against the Knicks at home the Cavaliers pounded New York 109-94 at home. New York is on a back to back on Saturday after facing Utah on Saturday. Look for Kyrie Irving and company to get the win and cover by pulling from the energy from their crowd.
