The Knicks (6-3) will face the Cavaliers (6-4) for the first time this season
The New York Knicks bounced back after two losses with a ridiculous come-from-behind win in Milwaukee on Friday night. The Bucks were no match for the streaking Knicks as Julius Randle, RJ Barrett, and Derrick Rose all topped the 20-point mark.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are riding a three-game winning streak as they enter New York, but they won’t be at full-strength. Kevin Love and Lauri Markkanen are both out due to health and safety protocols.
The Knicks will be keeping Kemba Walker out since this game is the first leg of a back-to-back. Derrick Rose is expected to take his spot in the starting lineup.
Let’s take a closer look at the broadcast information, odds, injury report, and projected starting lineups.
