New York Knicks star JR Smith insists he's learnt his lesson after he was benched earlier this season.

And while it's been a difficult campaign for the reigning Sixth Man of the Year, he at least showed flashes of his undoubted offensive skill in his 19-point performance against the Cleveland Cavaliers last night.

This crossover in particular was a superb piece of play, JR putting Cavs forward Tristan Thompson on his backside with a downright dirty piece of trickery.

These sorts of plays ultimately live and die by the ability of the player to drain his shot, and thankfully, JR nails this 20-foot jumper.

The Knicks were already well clear of the sorry Cavs at this stage and they ended up comfortable victors, 117-86 at Madison Square Garden.
