Notebook: Knicks 107, Cavaliers 97


Brian Dulik, for NBA.com
Posted Sun Mar 09, 2014 12:56 AM - Updated Sun Mar 09, 2014 12:56 AM

THE FACT: The Knicks won their third game in a row to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.

THE LEAD: All-Star small forward Carmelo Anthony scored a game-high 26 points and shooting guard J.R. Smith added 17 as the New York Knicks held off the Cleveland Cavaliers 107-97 on Saturday at Quicken Loans Arena. Power forward Amar'e Stoudemire chipped in 17 points and a season-high 12 rebounds for New York (24-40), while center Tyson Chandler had 15 points and 11 boards. All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving collected 30 points, eight rebounds and a game-high eight assists for Cleveland (24-40), which lost its fourth straight contest. The Knicks shot 14-for-31 on 3-pointers.

QUOTABLE: "This has been a tough year for us. We've been trying to figure out the chemistry on both ends of the court all along, but it's better late than never. Our defense is working now because we've actually bought into it."
-- Amar'e Stoudemire

THE STAT: Longtime Cavaliers center Zydrunas Ilgauskas became the seventh player in franchise history to have his number retired. Former Cleveland general manager -- and current Raptors executive -- Wayne Embry presided over the halftime ceremony as the No. 11 worn by "Z" from 1996-2010 was raised to the rafters. Ilgauskas is the Cavaliers' all-time leader in games (771), rebounds (5,904), offensive rebounds (2,336), and blocked shots (1,269). "I want to send a shout-out to Big Z," Knicks coach Mike Woodson said. "He's a true pro and a heck of a guy."

TURNING POINT: Shooting guard Dion Waiters scored four straight points to give the Cavaliers an 80-77 lead with 10:40 left in the fourth quarter, but the Knicks answered with a 14-1 run to seize control. New York buried four 3-pointers during the surge as point guard Pablo Prigioni made two, and Smith and Anthony had one apiece. "I was disappointed in the way that we played, especially defensively," Cavaliers coach Mike Brown said. "In the second half, they hit more shots than we did. That was the difference. We didn't come out with the right mindset to compete."

QUOTABLE II: "Guys are just playing basketball now. We're starting to trust each other a little bit. The last three games individually, it's all coming together for us collectively. Everybody is playing desperate at this point."
-- Carmelo Anthony

HOT: The Knicks are 3-1 since Stoudemire moved into the starting lineup on March 3. The six-time All-Star is averaging 16.8 points and 6.8 rebounds over that span despite playing only 27.5 minutes. ... Smith and Anthony combined to make nine 3-pointers in 16 tries. ... Cavaliers center Spencer Hawes had 21 points and 10 rebounds for his fourth double-double with the team. ... Cleveland center Anderson Varejao returned to action after a 12-game absence with lower back soreness. The mop-topped Brazilian had four points and three boards in nine minutes.

NOT: Cavaliers power forward Tristan Thompson played 15 minutes in the first half, but did not score, missed an alley-oop dunk, and only had one rebound. He finished with eight rebounds and four boards while being savaged defensively by Stoudemire. ... Cleveland's starting frontcourt of Thompson and small forward Luol Deng combined to shoot 6-for-20 from the field. ... The Knicks' bench scored only seven points in the second half, six of them by Prigioni. ... Anthony missed his first six shots and committed two turnovers before scoring his first point.

QUOTABLE III: "When I got to Cleveland, 'Z' took care of me and took me under his wing. Back then, he was like my dad, but now, he's more like my brother. I'm very happy for him and his family because I know how much he loves Cleveland."
-- Anderson Varejao

GOOD MOVE: Ilgauskas is one of the most beloved Cavaliers of all time, both by fans and players -- many of whom traveled to Cleveland to share in his special night. LeBron James, Ira Newble, Delonte West, Anthony Parker and Daniel "Boobie" Gibson were among Ilgauskas' former teammates in attendance. Ex-Cavaliers general managers Embry, Danny Ferry and Chris Grant also were on hand, as were former Cleveland owner Gordon Gund and Ilgauskas' parents, wife and two sons.

BAD MOVE: Grant badly reached to use the fourth overall picks in the NBA Draft on Thompson (2011) and Waiters (2012), whose collective lack of development was a major reason for his firing on Feb. 6. The aforementioned duo shot 6-for-16 against the Knicks, helping the Cavaliers take another step toward their fourth consecutive non-playoff season. Cleveland fell four games behind the Hawks for the final Eastern Conference postseason position with 18 contests remaining.

NOTABLE: James, West and Gibson sat on the Cavaliers' bench during Ilgauskas' ceremony, then posed for a photo with former Cleveland assistant coach Melvin Hunt before heading back to their luxury suites. ... The 10-day contracts of Knicks shooting guard Shannon Brown and power forward Earl Clark both expired following the game. Woodson said no decision would be made on their futures until Sunday. ... Cavaliers shooting guard C.J. Miles (left ankle sprain) sat out his ninth consecutive contest, but worked out on the court before the game.

UP NEXT: For the Knicks, Monday vs. Philadelphia, Wednesday @ Boston, Saturday vs. Milwaukee. For the Cavaliers, Wednesday @ Phoenix, Friday @ Golden State, March 16 @ Los Angeles. Clippers.
