Riding a four-game losing streak into Quicken Loans Arena, the Cleveland Cavaliers are showing home fans some reason to believe so far tonight, as the are tied 45-45 with the New York Knicks at halftime.
After averaging just 6.3 points over the past three games, Antawn Jamison has made 3-3 three-pointers and has dropped in 13 points to lead all scorers. The 35 year-old has perhaps only momentarily taken the spotlight from dynamo rookie point guard Kyrie Irving, who is 0-3 from the field with 2 points and 4 assists at the break.
Carmelo Anthony's struggles have continued, as the small forward is shooting 2-6 from the field with 7 points, while Cleveland has forced co-star Amare Stoudemire into four turnovers already.
Backup center Ryan Hollins is 3-3 with 6 points off the bench for the Cavaliers.
