Cavs rally late to win 8th straight game

Cleveland Cavaliers v Golden State WarriorsLebron James scores 31 points to lead the Cavs past the Knicks in a comeback victory. Mo Williams came up huge scoring the last six points for Cleveland as he finished with 20. Williams made a tie-breaking jumper with 41 seconds left and the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the New York Knicks Friday night for their eighth straight victory.

Williams scored Cleveland’s final six points and finished with 20. The veteran might be on the bench in situations like Friday once Kyrie Irving is healthy, but for now the Cavs are glad they had him on the floor.

“I just went with the flow of the game and let it dictate what I had to do,” Williams said.

Cleveland remained unbeaten since dropping its opener at Chicago and matched its best start through nine games at 8-1, largely with a defensive effort that limited the Knicks to 12 points in the final 12 minutes.

“Certain games are going to predict itself and you’ve got to be able to defend at a high level on the defensive end and then make timely shots, and we did that,” James said.

The crowd included tennis player Caroline Wozniacki, New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard and Knicks Hall of Famer Willis Reed, who posed for a picture with James and Anthony before the game.

Carmelo Anthony lead the Knicks with 26 points but unfortunately only had four points in the second half. Anthony and rookie Porzingis second half struggles ultimately lead to the Knicks blowing a 12 point lead. For the Knicks this is there second straight close loss and they will look to get back to there winning ways when they play the struggling Pelicans sunday at 2.12-michael-wright-knicks.w190.h190.2x

“They have a lot of guys who understand how to just play one possession at a time. We’re still learning,” Knicks coach Derek Fisher.

There was a moment of silence before the game for former Knicks draft pick Michael Wright and longtime NBA executive Gordon “Scotty” Stirling, who both died this week, along with the victims of the attacks in Paris.

James has been to France and offered his condolences to the victims of the attacks there Friday by saying, “Our world right now is having so many different tragedies, so many different innocent people and victims are losing lives over nonsense, and hopefully at some point in time people will realize that’s not the way to live.”
