Cleveland (WOIO) - Kyrie Irving returned to the court on Monday night, and by halftime, Carmelo Anthony had left it, but that still wasn't enough to save the Cavaliers, as the New York Knicks rallied from 22 points down to stun the Cavs, 102-97 at Quicken Loans Arena.
The Cavs built up a huge lead in the first half, with Marreese Speights, starting in place of Tyler Zeller, scoring 21 of his 23 points in the first two quarters. But down 12 at the half, the Knicks stormed back, with Amar'e Stoudemire leading the way with 22 points off the bench. Stunningly, not one Knicks starter finished in double figures.
Speights led the Cavs with 23 points, while Irving added 22.
