The Cavs are now beyond the official midway point of the season entering Monday’s home game vs. the New York Knicks (5 p.m., FOX Sports Ohio).

After a rocky rookie start, Garland is averaging 15.7 points and 6.0 assists over the last 10 games. He is shooting 43 percent from the field and a sizzling 91 percent on free throws in that stretch. He is coming a 16-point, five-assist performance in Saturday’s loss at Chicago.
