Cavaliers Vs. Knicks Final: New York Takes Care Of Irving-Less Cavs 91-75

The Cleveland Cavaliers dropped their seventh consecutive game on Saturday in a 91-75 loss to the New York Knicks, falling to 17-33 in the process.

Playing without star rookie Kyrie Irving, who is still recovering from a shoulder injury, the Cavs shot just 15.4% from three-point range and posted a negative assist-to-turnover ratio (13:19) as a team in the loss.

After only scoring two points in Friday's blowout defeat at the hands of Milwaukee, Cleveland forward Antawn Jamison turned in yet another forgettable performance with 13 points on 5-for-15 shooting with four turnovers.

With the news that enigmatic guard Jeremy Lin is now expected to miss the remainder of the season, Knicks guard J.R. Smith stepped up his game and led the way in the scoring column for the Knicks. Smith produced a game-high 20 points in 34 minutes on the floor, in addition to hauling down nine rebounds and swiping five steals.
