Before the New York Knicks' game versus the Cleveland Cavaliers, the team found out that it will be without Jeremy Lin for quite some time. Lin has a tear in his meniscus and will be sidelined for six weeks. On top of that, Amar'e Stoudemire maybe out for four weeks due to his back injuries.
However, time moved on and the Knicks had to put their bad news behind them. The Cleveland Cavaliers came into town and they were also missing their star point guard, Kyrie Irving.
So it was up to Carmelo Anthony to lead the Knicks to victory and his 19 points along with the 20 points by J.R. Smith helped the Knicks win, 91-75.
