The New York Knicks won in their first game with the new lineup at home. Now, they travel on the road for the first time with Chauncey Billups and Carmelo Anthony. On paper, the test could not be any easier, as they faced the worst team in the league: the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Guess who won the game? The Cavs. JJ Hickson was huge, Antawn Jamison had a big game, and they did not even have Baron Davis out there. This was sweet revenge for the Knicks and showed that despite all the negative attacks on the team, they can still compete with anyone as they have now beaten the Lakers and the Knicks recently.
