On Tuesday, the Cleveland Cavaliers and New York Knicks square off in a major game. The Cavaliers, who start the match at 1-2 overall, will play at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland. Cleveland has lost its last two games at home against Oklahoma City and Indiana. New York’s overall record is 1-2 as well, with a 1-1 away record and a defeat to New Orleans in their most recent game. Donovan Mitchell is classified as questionable, and Darius Garland and Jarrett Allen remain unavailable for the Cavaliers.
The Knicks have had a difficult start to this campaign. After losing to New Orleans on Sunday, where they only managed 87 points, New York is now 1-2. They sit 22nd in the NBA with an average of 105.7 points per contest. Their efficiency has proven to be a big issue; they are 29th in the league in terms of field goal percentage and charity stripe conversion rate, respectively, connecting on merely 40.4% and 66.7% of shots. They have a great chance to recover tonight when they face the Cavaliers, a team they have dominated recently.
Cleveland has likewise had a dismal start to the campaign, capturing only one of its first three matches. Their health-related problems predominate. Donovan Mitchell, Darius Garland, and Jarrett Allen were absent from Sunday’s 12-point home loss over Indiana. Despite having 33 and 31 points respectively, Evan Mobley and Caris LeVert received far too few points from the bench, just 11. Out of the three, Mitchell is the only one who might be able to make a comeback versus New York, the team he nearly traded for as he parted ways with the Jazz.
This game will mark the teams first meeting of the current campaign. Last season, the Knicks won the regular-season set 3-1 and the playoff series 4-1.
