Knicks Bench Beat the Cleveland D-Leagers

  • Chris Copeland started instead of Carmelo Anthony.  This is one of the few teams where the previous sentence still ends with a win.
  • Three players on the Cavs were wearing face masks.  What the hell is going on in Cleveland?
  • Even when Kidd’s shot isn’t falling (which was pretty much only today) he’s doing so many other things on the court it’s really amazing to watch.
  • Kyrie Irving had 41-5-5.  Imagine what he’d do with a team of actual NBA players.
  • What I learned from this game is that Luke Walton is still alive.
  • The Knicks only had 10 players suited up for this game.  They are 18-5 with 3-5 players injured every game.  Will this team be downright deadly when everyone is back?  Will everyone ever be back?
  • After the run the Knicks went on in the 2nd quarter I never felt worried about this game, even when the Cavs made it a 1 point game in the final minute.  That’s the kind of season the Knicks are having so far.  I have complete confidence in their ability to not have a meltdown against a bad team.
  • All that being said I REALLY REALLY hope Melo comes back for Mondays game.
