The Knicks beat the Cavs for the first time in 11 tries.
Sunday night’s clash with the Cleveland Cavaliers looked to be yet another one of those games where New York plays well for three periods before faltering down the stretch to a superior club. The three-time defending conference champs—who had won their last 10 games against the ‘Bockers—trimmed a 17-point lead to six within the first few minutes of the fourth quarter. Kristaps Porzingis was being guarded by LeBron James, who is pretty good at basketball, and was struggling mightily to get off his shot. Oh well.
