Kevin Love is outstanding tonight.  Interesting fact is both teams scored a total of just 31 points in the fourth quarter (NYK 12 and CLE 19). That was equal to all the points scored by Cavaliers in the first quarter. 

Kyrie played for about 19 minutes over all and he is getting in to the rhythm.

Anthony is out with right ankle sprain and Knicks gave a good fight without their lead scorer.

Cavaliers moved to 19-7 and maintaining winning streak, which is now at 6. Knicks are now 14-16 and trying their best to be in the top 8.

Kyrie is back and looking pretty good! Kyrie is playing his first after the he left with injury from last year Finals.  Apart from Harris and Williams every one played today!

Sixers are having the worst record in NBA right now and outcome of this game is pretty much expected.

Cavaliers are now at 18-7, leading the Eastern Conference with current winning streak at 5. Some new things to notice, LeBron did not play in the entire fourth quarter and Dellavedova scoring 20 points with four 3 pointers.

Cavaliers are now back to full strength! Blatt has more choices now to come up with more innovative game plans.

Late comeback effort from Thunder was not good enough to take the game into Over Time. It was all over when LeBron completed his free throw.

OKC 100 - CLE 104

Cavaliers still maintaining tthe top seed in Eastern Conference with 17-7.

It’s a total team effort from Cavaliers! Dellavedova and Tristan fireworks are back and it’s wonderful to watch them play. Tristan did a wonderful job of rebounds. Imagine healthy Kyrie, Mo and Iman coming back into the starting lineup. Love 4 point was superb, a three pointer and a free throw!

I still think Jefferson scored a three pointer but it was recorded as a 2 pointer. In replay, we can see his both feet are behind the 3-point arc. J R Smith was keep showing 3 from sidelines but looks like no one noticed.

Looks like the lady who got badly injured in the fourth quarter, surely will take some time to recover. She totally fell backwards and I am sure her head hit the ground.



LeBron was upset and concerned too. It took some time for him to get back to his rhythm too.
