NBA scores 2017: The Knicks almost beat the Cavaliers, but LeBron James stopped them

Plus, everything else from a wild Monday night.

Here we are, back at it again with an other episode of NBA scores for the poor souls who missed basketball on Monday night.

Let’s get you up to speed:

The Knicks blew a 23-point lead

He was booed by Madison Square Garden and got into a shoving match with both Enes Kanter and Frank Ntilikina, but James finished with 23 points, 12 assists, nine rebounds, and three blocks.

More importantly, James hit the go-ahead, side-step triple over Kristaps Porzingis.

Griffin had 29 points on 10-of-25 shooting in the Clippers’ loss to the 76ers, including 3-of-8 shooting from downtown. The LA star has made at least one three-pointer in each game of the regular season.
