By the Numbers: 3 Things Cavs did Against the Knicks and why Knicks Shouldn't have Mocked the King

The Cavs did more than just erasing a big lead

LeBron James had a triple-double in the Cavs' win against New York.

Just when the New York Knicks thought that they could come out of the Madison Square Garden as victors against the Cleveland Cavaliers after putting up a 23-point lead, the Cavs roared and came out with the last laughter as LeBron James drained a step-back three-pointer to lift the Cavs to a 104-101 victory over the Knicks in a game which saw LeBron being shoved and even name-called by Enis Kanter. That win, by the way, improved the struggling Cavs' records to 7-7 in the season.

So what happened? Just check out the numbers below:


The 4th Quarter Massacre

Why massacre? 

The Cavs only scored 13 points in the second quarter when the Knicks were able to build a sizeable margin. They remained flat out in the third quarter but once the fourth quarter came along, the Cavs went on full Super Saiyan mode as they outscored New York 43-25 which was capped by LeBron's game-winning trey to complete this season's biggest comeback win, so far. 19 of those 43 points came from Kyle Korver. In addition to this, the Cavs made 9 threes- 1 more than the baskets made by the Knicks in the final quarter, 8.





Another Triple Double for the King: Another Win

Nothing could keep LeBron James down. Not being benched by Tyronn Lue. Not by being shoved by several Knick players. Nothing. By the time the smoke cleared down, LeBron had another triple-double: 23 points, 10 rebounds (pending an official review) and  12 assists. He also had 3 blocks. 


Wade and Korver Produced

With Kevin Love clanking all night long, missing all of his 4 attempts from three, so were JR Smith and Iman Shumpert, Dwayne Wade and Kyle Korver stepped up off the bench to provide reinforcement to the King. Wade scored 15 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. Korver had 21 all in all, built on 5 of 12 shooting from deep. He was also flawless in 6 attempts from the free throw line.


Conclusion

At 7-7, the Cavs are now in the 9th place in the Eastern Conference. If they can keep on winning, they might be able to catch up with the Knicks who are at 6th place in no time. For the Knicks, they shouldn't have mocked the King. Mock him and you'll pay the price. Play and focus on the game and who knows, you might make the playoffs. Might.

But just how much money did the players actually get?
