New York Knicks
The Knicks are on a terrible losing streak of 16 games and are sat at the bottom of the Eastern Conference as a result.
They have only scored 100 points or more once in their last 8 games and looks to be a side in desperate need of inspiration.
Forward Kevin Knox is starting to prove himself at this level and has been one of the few bright spots in a difficult season for the Knicks,
The Cavaliers have also struggled this term and sit in 14th position – having only notched 11 wins from their 56 games played this term.
They too are a team low on confidence and are in the midst of a 4 game losing streak – having only won twice in their last 10 matches.
In light of an injury crisis at the club, Larry Nance, Jr is the man entrusted with leading the line for the Cavaliers and he has impressed at times this term.
Head to Head
New York Knicks lead the head to head showdown between the teams with 111 wins in comparison to the Cavaliers 96 historically.
In the last 6 meetings between the teams, both sides have won 3 each suggesting that this could be an attritional battle in Cleveland.
