Here are some stats we just grabbed from True Hoop:
The New York Knicks lost in Cleveland for the second time this year, but there were a few noteworthy accomplishments in the game.
Our friends at the Elias Sports Bureau tell us Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups became the second and third Knicks to score at least 20 points in each of their first two games with the Knicks. The other player to do so was Bill Cartwright in the 1979-80 season.
Anthony missed his last seven field goal attempts from 5+ feet on Friday night against the Cavaliers and scored just eight of his 27 points in the second half. Anthony is now 7-27 (25.9 percent) from that range as a Knick. He shot 39.3 percent with the Nuggets.
Cleveland is now 2-0 vs the Knicks this season, but 9-47 vs the rest of the league.
