The Cavs followed up Thursday night’s ugly loss to the Nets by playing well in the other borough that holds an NBA team. The Cavs cruised past the Knicks 107-93 in a game that was never in doubt.
The great first quarter set the tone, in which the Cavs jumped out to a 32-15 lead.
It was smooth sailing from there, as New York never really got back in striking distance.
Kyrie Irving had the night off and Kevin Love took advantage of that putting up 26 points with 12 rebounds.
LeBron James tallied a triple-double with 27 points, 11 boards, and ten assists.
For the Knicks, Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis were the only two who did much damage in terms of scoring, as Melo scored 28 and Porzingis put up 19.
The Cavs improve to 52-21 with the win and return home to take on the Houston Rockets on Tuesday night.
