Here's the latest Knicks vs. Cavs game preview with key details including time, channel, and how to watch it on a live stream online.

NBA game preview

The New York Knicks arrive at Sunday night's game with a bit of momentum in their pockets.

The team is coming off their first win of the season, 107-86 over the Brooklyn Nets. The NY Knicks' new cornerstone Kristaps Porzingis scored 30 points on 13-for-24 shooting while also grabbing nine rebounds. Rookie Frank Ntilikina had five assists to lead the team in that category as New York shot 44.9 percent overall and outrebounded Brooklyn 68-43.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are entering tonight's game on a two-game losing streak. They dropped both games on the road, with the first a 112-107 loss to Brooklyn, followed by last night's 22-point loss to the New Orleans Pelicans. In a surprising display from the team's stats, Cleveland is scoring 106.3 points per game while their opponents are scoring 109.5 per game so far.

That said, Cleveland's 3-3 record isn't too much of a concern at this point in the season, as there are 76 games left and several of their roster members who will be back at a later date. They include currently injured stars Derrick Rose and Isaiah Thomas.

Oddsmakers have listed the Cavs as favorites of 10.5 points on the spread.

The Knicks are +450 underdogs while Cleveland is priced as a -650 favorite on the moneyline. For the game's total, over/under bettors will be looking at 211.5 points for the complete game tonight.
