Cavaliers Vs. Knicks: A Tale Of Two Halves, Cavs Lose 120-103

Up by 12 at the half, the Cleveland Cavaliers seemed to have things going their way against the New York Knicks. A dreadful third quarter and even worse fourth quarter enabled the Knicks to take the lead and never look back en route to a 120-103 victory at Madison Square Garden.

120 is the most the Knicks have scored all season, thanks to a 71-point second-half. It was an interesting change from the first-half, which saw Cleveland score the most they've put up in a half with 61.

Steve Novak and Baron Davis carried New York in the second half, spurring on a run that brought them back into the game.Novak finished with 17 points while Davis dished eight assists.

Jeremy Lin has a solid night with 19 points, 13 assist and five rebounds while Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 22 points.

Antawn Jamison led the Cavs with 23 points and Kyrie Irving added 22 and seven assists in a losing effort.
