Immnuel Quickley’s heroics lift Knicks past Cavaliers

Following an inconsistent West Coast trip that ended up with one win in four games, the Knicks returned home to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers. Immanuel Quickley led the Knicks with 25 points off the bench to help his team cut a three game losing streak, crushing the Cavs 81-102.

Just four Knicks players finished in double figures, RJ Barrett  had 24, Julius Randle scored 16 and Austin Rivers sank 13 buckets.

The Cavaliers took an early 10 point lead which was quickly blown by New York before the end of the first quarter. From there, Thibodeau’s team slowly but surely took control of the game and for the last 2 and a half quarters they never allowed Cleveland to take the lead back.

Quickley, who had a career game in Utah, was on fire again. He shot 9-17 from the field and went 5-8 from the three point line.  He also ignited a 20-3 run in the third quarter that pretty much sealed the game.

“I really just do whatever the coaches ask me to do. Right now, it’s coming off the bench. When I come into the game just giving energy, playing my game, which is playing hard, being unselfish, being aggressive when I have to, playing defense and really just doing what the team needs me to do to get wins.”

The Cavs were led by Darius Garland’s 24 points. Collin Sexton followed with 17.

Next-up: The Knicks will host on Sunday at noon the LA Clippers.
