This is a game between these two teams who will be tanking until the end of the season, but I believe the Knicks will actually come fired up for this game to end their 17-game losing streak. The NY team was competitive on their last game against Toronto and I liked the fact that Lance Thomas is now finally out of the rotation, as I believe he has been the team's worst PF. The Knicks with Jordan and Robinson will have an edge on rebounding, while Cleveland's starting lineup with Sexton, Adel and Nwaba won't have enough offensive edge in here. I'm taking the Knicks to finally win a game tonight.
