The Cleveland Cavaliers had a dominant performance against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. With their young roster clicking, the Cavs put on a fantastic showing against the Knicks, who have been playing very well.
The Cavs were led by Ricky Rubio, who had a spectacular showing against the Knicks, coming off the bench and scoring 37 points, and going a spectacular 8/9 for the three-point line. Cavs' rookie Evan Mobley had his best showing in a Cleveland jersey, putting up 26 points and 9 rebounds.
The Knicks seemingly never got out of second gear. Despite double-digit performances from Derrick Rose, Evan Fournier, and Julius Randle, it was just not the Knicks' night. Their defense, which has been one of the best in the NBA since the start of last season, just couldn't stop the Cavs.
The Cavaliers were thrilled with their win in the Garden, one of the most NBA venues in the history of the NBA. And the Cleveland Cavaliers' Twitter account took the win as a chance to throw some shade at the New York Knicks.
The Cavaliers put up a photoshopped picture of the New York Knicks fan that shouted 'Bing Bong', which has become an iconic victory cry for Knicks fans. They captioned the picture with 'Bing Bong' to troll the Knicks.
Clearly, the Cleveland Cavaliers have been very satisfied with their performance against the Knicks. Even LeBron James, who is the greatest player in the history of the franchise, and a native Ohio boy, took to Twitter to share his amazement over Ricky Rubio's incredible performance.
The Cavs are in rebuild mode right now, trying to draft younger players. Their core with Darius Garland, Collin Sexton, and now Evan Mobley, could lead them to future championship success and give them an exciting set of stars since LeBron James.
