Knicks crush Cavs 123-105 to get the fourth win
- Updated: November 20, 2019
A game that the Knicks controlled from one end to the other, giving zero chances to the Cavs to even attempt a comeback.
Julius Randle led the Knicks with 30 points, Marcus Morris scored 23 and RJ Barrett added 15 to give New York a 123-105 win over Cleveland at the Garden.
The third quarter caught the Knicks on a 25 point lead, their biggest of the season. The Cavs never trailed by 15 points or less since that moment.
Coach Fizdale noticed a change in the game of his team since the 10 game ultimatum that the front office received not long ago.
“The thing I’m happy about is we’re starting to string together consistent efforts. We lost a tough one the other night, but had a chance to win the game”
– David Fizdale
Damyean Dotson scored 11 points off the bench and his on-court presence from the previous games are making a solid backup for the shooting guard position.
The Cavs, who played without Kevin Love and Larry Nance, were led by Kevin Porter Jr.’s 18 points. Colin Sexton added 14, just like Alfonzo McKinnie did, off the bench.
The Knicks are 2-2 in the last four games but the good vibes might quickly change as the Knicks face a tough schedule ahead. During the next 10 game stretch, New York will play against the Sixers (two times), Spurs, Nets, Raptors, Celtics and the Bucks.
First stop, tonight in Philly.
