The Cleveland Cavaliers didn’t play a pretty game, but managed to get the job done nonetheless.
The Cavs stepped up the defensive pressure late to stave off an upset attempt by the New York Knicks, pulling out a 91–84 win at Quicken Loans Arena.
“We preach offensively it’s not always going to be pretty,” LeBron James said. “Tonight we needed the defensive end. We just got stops.”
