Plenty went right for the Cavaliers in their 126-94 win over the Knicks last night, but there were a few snags.
And Iman Shumpert injured his hand while missing an open dunk.
If Shumpert was faking as an excuse for missing, he sold it hard. Defending 4-on-5 on the other end, Cleveland ceded a 3-pointer. Then, Shumpert remained hunched over while the Cavs brought the ball up-court. It seems Shumpert might have been popping back in a dislocated finger, which jibes with him staying in the game – and shows his toughness.
But it also doesn’t erase the shame of hurting yourself while missing an open dunk.
