Knicks Vs. Cavaliers Final Score: J.R. Smith Nets 20 As New York Downs Cleveland 91-75

J.R. Smith came off the bench to score a team-high 20 points Saturday to help the New York Knicks roll past the Cleveland Cavaliers, 91-75, at Madison Square Garden. The victory was a bounce-back one for New York (27-26), which still remains just two game ahead of the Milwaukee Bucks for the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Carmelo Anthony added 19 points for New York, which led 81-74 with about four minutes to play and put the game away with a 7-0 run. Tyson Chandler tallied 14 points and 12 rebounds, while Iman Shumpert added 10.

Four players for the Kyrie Irving-less Cavs scored in doubles figures, but Cleveland couldn't muster up enough offense to snap its losing streak, which now is at seven straight.

On Tuesday, the Knicks visit the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET.
