Cavs, Knicks face off with skids in tow

Prior to their first meeting of the season on Dec. 29, the Cleveland Cavaliers and New York Knicks each looked as if they were trying to author the early chapter of a surprise NBA success story.

But the Cavaliers and Knicks will be trying to avoid slipping into a familiar and well-worn tale Friday night, when Cleveland is scheduled to host New York in a battle of slumping teams.

The Cavaliers and Knicks, who won the fewest and second-fewest games in the NBA, respectively, the previous two seasons, both enter Friday in the midst of losing streaks that have dropped them under .500 and threatened to undo their early-season progress.
