New York Knicks v Cleveland Cavaliers: Match preview

Published Add your comment

The New York Knicks host the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight in a match that they will be hoping to win in order to continue their recent good form.

Mike Woodson's side go into Thursday night's encounter at Madison Square Garden on the back of home wins against the Charlotte Bobcats, the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics.

The Knicks are slowly starting to creep up the Eastern Conference table after a poor start to the season.

Knicks head coach Woodson was in danger of losing his job at the beginning of December, however the former Atlanta Hawks tactician has been able to steady the ship.

The Cleveland Cavaliers - like the Knicks - have also struggled for form this season.

Mike Brown's side have won just 16 games so far this season, which puts them one place behind the Knicks in the Eastern Conference standings.

The Cavaliers chances of winning tonight's game have been boosted as Knicks trio Amar'e Stoudemire, Andrea Bargnani and Iman Shumpert are all expected to miss tonight's game at the Garden.

Prediction: The New York Knicks will stretch their run to four games unbeaten by beating the Cleveland Cavaliers by a slender scoreline.
