Anthony, Knicks can’t stop LeBron, Cavs
Carmelo Anthony scored 14 of his 26 points in the first quarter but it was the Cavs who controlled the first quarter with JR Smith breaking the ice with two shots from behind the arc in the start of the game.
New York got back on track early in the second quarter and kept the Cavs at distance as the Knicks led by 8 early in the fourth quarter.
However, Anthony’s effort wasn’t sustained – he scored just 4 buckets in the second half – and LeBron James took over, scoring 12 of his total 31 in the last quarter. New York blew another lead, after one week ago they dropped a bigger one in Cleveland, and handed over the Cavaliers the win, in the last minutes of the game, the final score 90-84.
Kristaps Porzingis scored 11 points and grabbed 7 rebounds, Arron Afflalo had 14 while Jose Calderon with 10 points outscored for the second time this season Langston Galloway who finished with 7.
New York falls 4-6 and will face the Pelicans on Sunday afternoon at the Garden.
The world was stunned yesterday as the city of Paris counted 120 kills in terrorists bomb and gun attacks, the biggest ones since 9/11. Kevin Seraphin, who has a home and family back there was shocked to hear about it an hour prior to the tipoff. With this being said, our prayers go to the people living in Paris and the families of the victims.
