KNICKS DROP GAME 2, RETURN TO MADISON SQUARE GARDEN TIED WITH CAVS
The Cleveland Cavaliers won Game 2 of their Round 1 clash against the New York Knicks with a final score of 107-90, tying the series at
1-1 after the first two games.
The final result of Game 2 was a final score of 107-90. The Cavaliers had previously stated that they felt it was imperative for them to
strike first in this match,
and they did just that. The early going of the game didn't seem good for the Knicks, and things never improved after that.
The Knicks were able to clinch the first game of the series on the road this past Saturday thanks to outstanding performances from Jalen
Brunson and Julius Randle,
as well as the much-needed lift from Josh Hart off the bench. If they wanted to attempt to avoid falling behind 2-0 in this series again
they needed to refocus their attention on rebounding and on their bench players. It was also going to be intriguing to see how physical
ly the Cavaliers
started this one up because they remarked multiple times during press conferences following Game 1 that they lacked the intensity on tha
t side of the ball in compared to New York.
After a turnover by Isaac Okoro at the other end of the court, Brunson got things started with a jumper to start the first quarter.
Donovan Mitchell had an immediate response to the question. The first few minutes of the session were obviously spent by both offenses trying to get their footing and get settled in.
