Good evening! The Knicks have kind of a huge game tonight? If they're serious about this making-a-run-for-the-eighth-seed, they've got several teams to jump in the standings. The first of those teams is the Cavaliers, who sit a game ahead of them in the standings. The two teams have traded blowouts this season, and we know Kyrie Irving can shred New York's defense and the Cavs can hit those open threes the Knicks are liable to surrender. Carmelo Anthony and budz are 24 hours removed from a drubbing of the Jazz so thorough that no starter had to spin in the fourth quarter, which is good. Can the Knicks keep that spirit alive? They really must.
Tip-off tonight is at 7:30 on MSG and NBA TV. This is your game thread. This is Fear the Sword. Please don't post large photos, GIFs, or links to illegal streams in the thread. Get them WWWs, Knicks.
