The good news is that the New York Knicks were able to overcome a 22-point deficit to beat the Cavs in Cleveland for the first time since 2006 – ending a 10-game losing streak in ‘The Rock and Roll Capitol of the World’.  The bad news: Carmelo Anthony left the game with a knee injury missed the whole second half.

After the game, ‘Melo told the  been nagging him for several weeks:

“It’s just sore, not pain, sore and stiffness,” Anthony said in a crowded corridor outside New York’s locker room. “It’s been going on for a while now.”


‘Melo had just six points before exiting.

Amar’e Stoudemire and J.R. Smith stepped up with 22 and 18, respectively. Steve Novak scored 15 and Jason Kidd added a dozen.

Despite Smith’s 18, he had another awful shooting night from beyond the arc, 1-7, after shooting 3-14 from 3-point range in Saturday’s loss the Heat.

Marreese Speights led Cleveland with 23 and Kyrie Irving had 22 points and six assists.

New York plays at Detroit on Wednesday night at 7:30.
