It was a night of running for (and against) the Knicks. After taking a three-point lead early in the third, the Cavs went 14-2 to take a 10-point lead, their biggest of the night. But the Knicks returned with their own 16-0 that went in the fourth quarter, with Julius Randle scoring nine points in the run.
Subsequently, the Knicks conceded nine unanswered points. They fought to get back for one with less than two minutes left, but the Cavs pulled away late.
The Knicks only scored 48 points in the second half. But Randle remained hot: he finished with 28 points, scoring the fifth time in the last seven games in which he has scored at least 28 points.
