The New York Knicks experienced radically different emotions in a single game that went from shock to relief. The good news is their victory at the home of the Cleveland Cavaliers (98-107), third ranked in the East and their direct rival in the Playoffs (39-21 Cavs to 36-25 Knicks). The bad things happened much earlier, when Jalen Brunson left the field with apparent signs of pain in one knee. An ugly movement and feel injury for the Knicks superstar. And again the positive ones, Well it seems not to be that serious after the first scan.
