The lame-stream media will try to tell you that the Cleveland Cavaliers won Wednesday night’s contest at Madison Square Garden by the score of 126-94. Don’t believe it, loyal readers. As far as I’m concerned, the Cavaliers forfeited the game as soon as this happened:
Forgive me, Shump. I know it’s petty, but this was an evening for pettiness. The Cavs, high-octane offensive machine that they are, had their way with New York’s pedestrian defense, raining down enough threes to flood the entire Hudson Valley. They went up by as much as 17 in the first, held off a few first-half Knick runs, and then demolished the ‘Bockers throughout the third.
Brandon Jennings was pretty much shut down, like all the Knicks, but at least he managed to beat Cleveland down the court once:
Kristaps Porzingis shot well in the first half, which inspired some hope that he was breaking out of his shooting slump, but he struggles yet again with his stroke in the second half.
Willy Hernangomez made all of his free throws in garbage time, which is the closest thing to a positive trend in this game. Recap to come.
