Carmelo Anthony and Tim Hardaway Jr share 58 points in a 117-86 win for the New York Knicks over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Carmelo Anthony and Tim Hardaway Jr combined for 58 points on Thursday night to help the New York Knicks to a comfortable triumph over the Cleveland Cavaliers at Madison Square Garden.

Both players scored 29 points as the Knicks took advantage of a below-par Cleveland display to record a 117-85 win in front of their home supporters.

Anthony, who passed 10,000 career points in the victory, scored 18 of his 29 points in the first quarter to hand the hosts a fast start and Cleveland struggled to get back into the game.

Despite an improved display in the third quarter, the Cavaliers were unable to force the Knicks into a difficult position after trailing by 24 at half time.

Kyrie Irving topped the scoring charts for the visitors with 24 points.
