I’m betting this version of the New York Knicks would prefer to never enter Quicken Loans Arena again. The Knicks lost their 10th straight in The Q as the Cavaliers looked much more focused and determined against a playoff team that had plenty more to lose. Kyrie Irving shook some rust off and finished with  21 points on 6-of-15 shooting, while Manny Harris added 19 points and a career-high 12 rebounds, with a halfcourt heave and bank three with the shot clock winding down to cap his evening. New York was led by Amar’e Stoudemire and Steve Novak’s 15 points each as Stoudemire returned from a back injury. Carmelo Anthony was held to 12 points on 5-of-13 shooting. The Cavaliers are now 21-41 and face the Spurs next on Sunday night.
