On Monday night, led by LeBron James, the Cleveland Cavaliers completed an amazing fourth-quarter comeback against the New York Knicks.

The four-time NBA MVP led Cleveland back from a 23-point deficit to win 104-101 at Madison Square Garden in New York City against the Knicks, falling just short of a triple-double on the night. He finished with 23 points, nine rebounds, and 12 assists, going 7-of-14 from the field.

This game provided a couple of memorable moments, including a confrontation between James and Knicks star Enes Kanter, but the fans tried to play their part to affect the outcome of the game in favour of New York as well.

According to Michael Pina‏ of VICE Sports, Knicks fans inside Madison Square Garden on Monday night tried to put off James and the Cavaliers as they made their comeback in the game by chanting 'Kyrie Irving'. Unfortunately for them though, they were unsuccessful in their attempts.

Irving was, of course, a member of the Cavaliers before he handed in his trade request during the summer, and was subsequently traded to the Boston Celtics. Irving did have a list of preferred trade destinations when he originally handed in his request, and one of the teams on that list was the Knicks.

Knicks fans did their best with their 'Kyrie Irving' chants, but ultimately, it was James and Cleveland that came out of this game as the victors after their amazing fourth-quarter comeback.

The Cavaliers won despite turning the ball over 21 times and shooting 39.8 percent in the game. The game literally came down to the fact Cleveland outscored New York 43-to-25 in the fourth quarter.

The Knicks will now look to come back from this loss when they host the Utah Jazz on Wednesday at Madison Square Garden, while the Cavaliers will be traveling to Charlotte to play against the Hornets at the Spectrum Center on the same night.
