Monday night’s contest between the New York Knicks and Cleveland Cavaliers was yet another blowout. This time, however, it was the ‘Bockers who did the beating, cruising to a 123-105 win that wasn’t even as close as the final score.
The oft-maligned Julius Randle got the Knicks off on the right foot, scoring 15 points in the first quarter en route to a 30-point night. Randle shot an efficient 12-17 from the field (3-5 from three), which should help that field-goal percentage quite a bit.
Frank Ntilikina did yeoman’s work manning the point guard position, calming the team when things got a bit dicey in the second quarter. He had 6 assists, including this nice one to Marcus Morris.
RJ Barrett couldn’t get much going in the first half, but ended the night with 15 points.
Damyean Dotson (11 points) also played some quality minutes for New York, but in general it was the Knicks’ starters who rolled over Cleveland all night long.
Recap to come.
