Irving, James lead Cavaliers past Knicks, 119-104

Posted February 25, 2017

He's already averaging 37.5 minutes per game, second-most in the league, and it's Year 14 - at some point, this is going to start to sap his legs, right?

"I'm at peace", Anthony said.

The Cavaliers have gone 8-1 in February, and this Knicks game was another example of how they have turned the corner since their 7-8 January.

Courtney Lee had 25 points for NY, which has lost six of seven and is 12th in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

"We got up and then it gets too easy", Lue said.

The Knicks were led by 25 points from Courtney Lee and 20 from Carmelo Anthony.

In the early days of the Trump administration, Flynn was interviewed by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents about the call. He said the White House has yet to be forthcoming about whether Flynn was acting at the behest of the president or others.

Rose, another subject of trade rumors as the deadline approached, scored 13 points. They joined the plus-sized second unit coach Ty Lue continues to experiment with - with James, Korver, Williams, Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye, all measuring 6-foot-7 or taller - and Thursday saw the group once again wreak havoc on its opponent. Irving finished two points of shy of scoring 25 points for the sixth straight games.

In fact, the unresolved beef between the two sides may be why Oakley was very vague when he was asked which team he wanted to win on Thursday.

In an ESPN radio interview, Dolan revealed that Oakley would be indefinitely blocked from Madison Square Garden after a brief argument and scuffle between Oakley and guards unfolded in front of stunned fans and players. Oakley sat next to Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert in a front row seat adjacent to Cleveland's bench.

"It can't just end because we had the meeting", Oakley said last week, adding that he'd "rather go to jail" than to let the Knicks act as if they'd smoothed everything over. Oakley was famously kicked out of a Knicks game, and while the situation was eventually resolved, it did not happen without plenty of nasty allegations thrown Oakley's way.
