The Knicks built a 23-point lead on Monday night at the Garden, only to see Kyle Korver go crazy from 3-point land and LeBron James be LeBron James in the fourth quarter.

The young big man stood his ground against the Cavs in more ways than one, and as a result earned the respect of the white and orange faithful.
