Knicks lose to Cavs in Carmelo’s second game

When Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups joined Amare Stoudemire, they expected to lose a few games-just not to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Wednesday night in New York, Carmelo Anthony had everything he wanted: a great player alongside him, home, great fans, and a win. Friday night, Anthony’s second game with the Knickerbockers and his first road game, we were reminded that good things always come to an end. Anthony and the Knicks lost the the league-worst Cleveland Cavaliers 115-109. Anthony scored 27 points, but missed an important free throw that would have brought the Knicks two points within the Cavaliers. He also fouled out in an embarrassing Knicks loss. His elbow appeared to be bothering him, and he said he bumped it during play. Amare Stoudemire scored 31 points to lead New York, and Chauncey Billups added 26 for his second straight very good performance since joining the team along with Carmelo. For the Cavaliers, Antawn Jamison scored 28 points. J.J. Hickson also helped out with 24 points and 15 rebounds on the night. Despite Billups’ best efforts, scoring 20 points in the final quarter, the Knicks couldn’t rally and play Sunday in Miami to play the star-studded Heat.
