James Dolan 'Disappointed' By Knicks Start, Ordered Front Office To Address Media

Knicks Kevin Love RJ Barrett Cavs

Sexton scores 31, Cavaliers beat Knicks

The Cavaliers were coming off a 113-100 win over Washington on Friday. "We only had 12 turnovers and we forced them into 21 turnovers, and they only shot 35%".

The Knicks couldn't say the same.

3-7 sounds a lot better than 2-8, so come on, let's go, Knicks! The same source also said Dolan ordered Mills and Scott Perry to address the media after the game.

"We still believe in our coaching staff".

After the Knicks' 108-87 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers at Madison Square Garden dropped NY to 2-8 on the season, president Steve Mills and general manager Scott Perry conducted an unexpected postgame press conference.

Sportsnet fires Don Cherry over controversial comments about immigrants
Most of us prefer to watch our Canadiens games on RDS in part because we don't enjoy Cherry's pugilistic view of hockey and life. Cherry faced immediate criticism for the remark. "We're proud of diverse cultural heritage and we'll always stand up for it".

"Given that this is our 10th game, we felt like we had an obligation to come and speak to you guys", Mills said. "He would want us to have better results on the floor. And I think Jim is a fan and believes in what we're doing, but he has the same kind of expectations that we have". "And this is really about how we feel about what we should be doing, what we should be delivering as a group and we all take responsibility".

"At the end of the day, f-k the x's and o's", Morris said in support of his head coach David Fizdale, who's taken some heat for the slow start.

"I live in that sense of urgency", Fizdale said. I'm not cruising through this thing acting like I've got a bunch of time to get a team together.

Perry said the team has lacked consistency in its effort.

The Cavs opened the second half on an 18-6 run and led the Knicks by as many as 30 in the third quarter.

Police later fired tear gas in the same area where the protester was shot, Reuters reported citing a witness. He died on Friday from head injuries after falling from a parking garage where police had fired tear gas.

Cleveland scored the first seven points of the third to take a 25-point lead and loud boos cascaded the Knicks with about seven minutes left after Sexton's layup extended the lead to 68-42.

Sexton scored 11 points as the Cavaliers took their first double-digit lead almost five minutes in and held a 31-19 lead after the opening quarter. The Knicks struggled mightily from the field shooting 16 for 43 in the first half, taking many contested long two-pointers. I think the willingness is there, on the players' parts.

Cleveland busted out of the gate and led 14-4 as Sexton scored nine points to open the game.

Cavaliers: Coach John Beilein acknowledged the shortage of "enhancement preparation" is the most important transition for him altering from the college to skilled online game. John Henson (hamstring), Dylan Windler (leg) and Ante Zizic (foot) were out for Cleveland.

Knicks: Elfrid Payton is not guaranteed his starting point guard spot upon return.
