Carmelo Anthony finished with a game-high 32 points to go with eight rebounds, two assists, and two blocks but it was not enough as the Knicks had their 8-game win streak snapped by the Cavs.
Melo remains the second leading scorer in the league with a little over 28 points per game. (Kevin Durant leads the league at 32.2 points per game). Anthony has scored 32-plus points in three of his last five games.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Update: Nene (calf) will not play Saturday.
The Wizards are thin in the forecourt, now with Hilario out as well as Kris Humphries. He was a game-time decision earlier, but the pre-game shootaround appear to have shown his lack of capacity to play on Saturday. Jared Dudley and Drew Gooden will be asked to carry on in place of the injured Wizards. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
