NBA boff Ashfaq Hussain (@Broke_No_Joke) returns with a bet from Thursday night’s basketball he’s keen to share.
Cleveland Cavaliers @ New York Knicks | Friday 1.05 | BT Sport 1
Finally the Cavaliers are starting to hit top gear. They’ve been stream-rolling teams with the big-three posting up some big scores. Kevin Love’s been geen getting more involved and that’s a big boost.
On Thursday night they head to New York, a place where LeBron James likes to put a show. Madison Square Garden has been a great place for the King to play – he’s always had success there.
The Knicks on the other hand look lost wherever they play. I’ve been waiting to see them get a healthy squad together and click. But I’m still waiting.
Jose Calderon made an impact in his first game back whilst Carmelo Anthony was out. But since Anthony has returned, they’ve reverted back to the same old routine – get the ball and find Melo.
To make matters worse, Melo went public about the option of playing for the Bulls next – not what your team wants to hear.
The Knicks are there for the taking tonight and this should be sweet revenge for the Cavaliers. I’ll have them on the handicap and total team points.
