The Cleveland Cavaliers (37-9) vs The New York Knicks (21-26)
Wed. 2/4 at 7:30pm ET on MSG
* First off, I just wanna say for all the New York Lebron James supporters, its time to stop with that. Hes not on the team. I dont like him, and I will continue to root against him. Lets stop with the photo shoppin and puttin him in a Knicks jersey. In 2010, thats a different story if he signs with us. But for now lets focus on the present. We got a good team, a team that could potentially make the playoffs. Thats all I have to say for now....
Welcome to the MSGKnickz33 Pregame show. The Knicks are coming off a tough loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. Kobe Bryant was unstoppable against the Knicks, scoring 61 points. His 61 points was the most points ever scored by a Knicks opponent at the Garden, erasing Michold Jordans name from the history books. After losing to last years MVP, the Knicks will have to move on and face a player who is one of the top candidates for this years MVP award. He goes by the name of Lebron James.
The Cavaliers are coming off a 10 point victory over the Detroit Pistons. They defeated them 90 to 80, on Sunday Afternoon. Lebron James led the way with 33 points and 8 assists. He also had 5 turnovers. Zydrunas Ilgauskus is back in the lineup for the Cavs. He struggled offensively, only shooting 5 for 16 but still managed to score 13 points and grab 8 rebounds. Cleveland has the best defense in the league, and the 3rd best record overall.
The Knicks will have their hands full with a superior opponent. They must find a way to slow Lebron James down, and if they cant do that then they need to make sure that they guard his teammates. The Cavs have several players who are capable of knocking down open 3 pointers. It is not believed at this time that Delonte West will be playing, but they still have Daniel Gibson, Mo Williams, Wally Szczerbiak, and Sasha Pavlovic.
