Opening Night Predictions: New York Knicks vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

NBA action is almost back. A new season will tip-off tomorrow, and millions of fans around the world are excited. The last match was Game 7 of the epic finals series between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors. The first team that we’ll see in action will be the Cleveland Cavaliers as they receive their championship rings and start defending their title.

Their opponents will be the New York Knicks. This will be the debut of Derrick Rose in Knicks jersey and what a debut it will be. He’ll need to prove that he was worth trading for in the offseason. Rose will have a great chance to start doing that against the Cavs.

Porzingis and Noah will also be in the starting lineup. They will have good stats, especially Porzingis who will be able to score on Kevin Love all game long. Melo and LeBron will matchup for most of the night as well, and both of them will score at least 25 points. If not even more. Irving has been banged up to start the season, but expect him to play on the championship ring night.

Cavaliers will be emotional after that ring ceremony in the first half. Expect the Knicks to take that early lead, Cavaliers will tie the game before the first half ends and then pull away late in the fourth quarter. LeBron will score 27, Irving will add 23 and Cavaliers will win this one 97:89. It’s not going to be easy but it will be fantastic fo us to watch this duel.
