The Cavs fell off a but letting the Knicks back into the game in the second period. Cleveland only scored 17 points in the second letting the Knicks pull within 3 at the half.
Cleveland came out of the locker room on fire in the 3rd period. They scored 33 points and started to pull away from the Knicks. The Cavs must have got a wake up call from Mike Brown at the half. It looked as though the Cavs were going to let the Knicks play better and then they turn things around and decided New York wasn’t gonna take this game.
Kyrie Irving had a good night scoring 37 point and he could score at will. He also had 11 assists in the game and he showed some great team work starting to come together for Cleveland.
Jarrett Jack had 17 and Tristan Thompson had 12. It is great to see this team starting to play some better basketball, we can’t get too excited about this win because the Knicks aren’t the Knicks of old.
They are struggling losing 8 of their last 10 games and they are in last place in their division. But hey, a win is a win and the Cavs can use all the wins they can get.
