Knicks Vs. Cavaliers Final Score: Cleveland Wins 91-81

The New York Knicks continue to bring joy to opposing teams, as the Cleveland Cavaliers snapped a four-game losing streak with a 91-81 win on Wednesday night at Quicken Loans Arena.

Cleveland made 9-20 three-pointers to help spring them to a win, even as Kyrie Irving shot just 1-7 from the field, though the star rookie did finish with 7 points and 7 assists.

Anderson Varejao had a complete game for Cleveland with 10 points, 16 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 steals and 2 blocks.

New York had just snapped a six-game losing streak with a win over the Charlotte Bobcats on Tuesday night, but they were back in regular form, out of form by Wednesday night, making just 3-20 three-pointers and scoring just 17 points in the fourth quarter.

The Cavaliers have a real opportunity to stay on the winning track, as they next host the New Jersey Nets on Friday in a game scheduled to kick off at 7:30 p.m. eastern.
