Porzingis returns to double-double mode but Knicks bow to Cavs

Without Carmelo Anthony who decided to sit this game and rest, it was Lance Thomas who took over in the lineup, following his best game as a Knick this season.

Thomas played 34 minutes and scored 8 points shooting 4-11 from the field before counting his 6th personal foul with 2 seconds left of play.

The Knicks never led throughout the first three quarters only managed to tie the game a couple of times in the third but it was Langston Galloway‘s jumper with 4 minutes to play that put New York up 82-80. Unfortunately, their fuel was pretty much done and allowed the Cavaliers to go on a 8-0 run to seal fate of the game. Final score Knicks 84 – Cavaliers 91.

Kristaps Porzingis emerged as the Knick high-scorer of the game, after recent struggle and finished the night with 23 points and 13 rebounds. The rookie however scored all his points before the 4 quarter having just one attempt in the final act, a missed 58 foot buzzer.

“I think our fight was there. They were better at the end. We couldn’t figure out how to finish the game.”
