Cavaliers 119, Knicks 104: The super team did what the super team does

New, comments

Welcome back, Knicks fans!

NBA: New York Knicks at Cleveland Cavaliers Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

At 3 PM Thursday afternoon fans discovered that the current iteration of the New York Knickerbockers basketball club would be the exact same group they had been watching all season. A few hours later, the Knicks reminded their fans why watching an unchanged version of this club is a fate worse than death.

New York displayed their characteristic brand of non-defense in Cleveland, allowing 119 points to a Cavs squad missing Kevin Love.

Oh, and Kristaps Porzingis got hurt.

Courtney Lee was by far New York’s best player on the evening, dropping 25 points on 10-15 shooting to go along with 6 rebounds and 5 assists.

Carmelo Anthony needed 25 shots to collect 20 points and posted the rare 5/5/5 (rebounds, assists, turnovers) line.

Willy Hernangomez posted a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds. He also dropped 4 dimes, tying him with the team’s nominal point guard, Derrick Rose.

Great stuff, guys. Recap to come, probably tomorrow morning.
