Blake Griffin has 6 points, 5 turnovers and 4 rebounds with 3:25 left in the first quarter.

Kings 120, Mavs 89 (final). Losing by 31 at home to a lottery team is a new low for the Mavs, whose 4-17 record is the NBA's worst.

ESPN Stats and Information  

LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony have played each other 33 times including the regular season and playoffs. Carmelo's 8 points on Wednesday were the fewest he's ever scored against LeBron and the 2nd-fewest either have scored head-to-head. LeBron scored 7 in their very first meeting back in November 2003.

LeBron tries water bottle challenge during game
NBA 

Their team had a commanding lead over the Knicks, so LeBron James and Kyrie Irving had some fun on the Cavs bench by attempting the water bottle challenge. It didn't go well.

Cavs 126, Knicks 94: if this was a measuring stick game for the Knicks, they came up woefully short. With Derrick Rose out, the Knicks offense was stagnant and they had no answer for LeBron James (25 points) or Kyrie Irving (28). New York, which had won 9 of 12 coming into tonight, had very little energy in the second night of a back-to-back. Carmelo Anthony was particularly lethargic, finishing with eight points on four shots.

Rockets rolled past the Lakers, 134-95. Rockets set season-highs in points and assists (35). The Rockets won their 15th game in their 21st game of the season. Houston didn't win its 15th game last season until the 27th game.

We've got five more minutes of garbage time to play in Knicks-Cavs, so here's a stat: Carmelo Anthony finished with eight points tonight. The last time he scored 8 points was in a January 2011 game against the Hornets.

Embarrassing moment for the Knicks: Kyrie Irving was all alone on the 3-point line, standing there for a good five seconds with the ball in his hand and no defender within 10 feet. He calmly lined up a 3-pointer and knocked it down. The Knicks had defended the 3-point line relatively well of late, but they've allowed open shot after open shot tonight. The Cavs have hit 14 of 27 from beyond the arc.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

The Knicks look incredibly sluggish right now. All five players sauntered to the bench with their heads down after that last stoppage in play. You usually see players high five when they come back to the bench. There were no hi-fives exchanged among Knicks during this timeout. NY is down 23.

Celtics 117, Magic 87: Playing without All-Star point guard Isaiah Thomas (groin strain), the Celtics responded with maybe their finest 48-minute effort of the season and a dominant second-half propelled them to a lopsided win over a previously red-hot Magic team. Marcus Smart, starting in place of Thomas, had 13 points, while Terry Rozier added a career-high 16 points off the bench. Avery Bradley put up a team-high 23 points.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

A Cavs visit to MSG usually generates some buzz but the crowd tonight been very quiet. The Knicks being 15 points down certainly factors in. But you'd expect a little more volume in the building no matter what the score is. CeeLo Green, performing at halftime, can't even get the crowd on its feet.
