Cleveland Cavaliers Star Has Startling Admission Following First-Round Series Loss

Despite popular opinion having them as a genuine contender in the Eastern Conference, the Cleveland Cavaliers flamed out in a big way against the New York Knicks, losing in a succinct five games much to the surprise of many.

What came as arguably the biggest surprise was just how Knicks big man Mitchell Robinson outplayed the star duo of Jarrett Allen and Evan Mobley, and following the series, Allen made a startling admission, saying that the lights of the playoffs in New York were just too big for him.

It was clear that the Knicks were used to the big moment playing in New York, while the young Cavaliers were overwhelmed, but with a solid young group, they'll no doubt be around for years competing for the playoffs in the stacked Eastern Conference.
