Could this be the wake-up call the Cavaliers needed?
Facing a twenty point deficit to the New York Knicks at the Garden, a sleeping giant might have finally awoken.
Led by LeBron James, the Cavs stormed back behind a slew of three pointers and excellent fourth quarter defense. The young Knicks chipped in some bloopers of their own, of course. But this was clearly the case of a superior team flexing its muscles.
With the game on the line, we got the matchup we were all waiting for: the GOAT vs. the Unicorn.

This is no doubt a discouraging loss for the Knicks, but there's still plenty to take from this for a young team.
For the Cavs, on the other hand, this comeback win should be a catalyst for things to come.
