The Cleveland Cavaliers overcame the New York Knicks in a spiteful clash, while reigning NBA champions the Golden State Warriors stayed hot.
LeBron James led the Cavaliers to an improbable 104-101 victory against the Knicks on Monday.
The Knicks, angry about recent comments James made about the New York franchise, came out hot, building a 51-38 half-time lead.
Along the way, the player some people felt James "dissed," guard Frank Ntilikina, stole the ball six times, including once from the Cavs star.
And Ntilikina — with a little backup from Enes Kanter — had a testy on-court encounter with James that left the Madison Square Garden crowd roaring its approval.
The Knicks led by 23 points, 73-50, with just over two minutes left in the third quarter. However, the Cavs outscored the hosts 43-20 in the final quarter to stun the New York crowd.
James had created a stir after Cleveland's game against the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday, claiming the Knicks should have drafted guard Dennis Smith Jr. this year. Instead, the Knicks took Ntilikina at number eight in the draft, letting Smith go with the next pick to Dallas.
While some took that as a slam against Ntilikina, James said Monday the remarks were "definitely a shot" at former Knicks president Phil Jackson.
James then definitely hit the shot that sank the Knicks on Monday, a go-ahead three-pointer that gave the Cavs a 100-97 lead.
The Warriors, meanwhile, extended their winning streak to seven games by downing the Orlando Magic 110-100.
Golden State – led by Kevin Durant's 21 points – did it without two-time MVP Stephen Curry, who sat out the game due to injury.
MILLER LIFTS PELICANS, TOWNS SINKS JAZZ
Darius Miller came off the bench to score 21 points, including 14 in the fourth quarter, to key the New Orleans Pelicans' 106-105 win against the Atlanta Hawks. He was five of eight from deep, nailing four of those in the final quarter.
Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns had 24 points and 13 rebounds in the team's 109-98 win over the Utah Jazz.
CONLEY STRUGGLES IN GRIZZLIES LOSS
Memphis Grizzlies guard Mike Conley hit only two-of-12 shots and finished with seven points in a 110-103 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.
ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER SIMMONS HIGHLIGHT
The Philadelphia 76ers star was at it again. The number one pick in the 2016 NBA Draft posted 22 points and 12 rebounds, which included seven dunks. This was the pick of the bunch.

CELTICS AT NETS

In case you are wondering, the longest Celtics' winning streak in history is 19, by the 2008-2009 team.
