The Cavs Took the NYC Subway Today and Not Everyone Was Pleased

LeBron James attempted to get the last word in his feud with some members of the New York Knicks with an Instagram post on Tuesday morning.

Kanter wasn't the only one James had a remark for after the game.

James had indirectly criticized Ntilkina earlier when he said the Knicks should have drafted another player. While James didn't react, Knicks center Enes Kanter ran to the defense of Ntilikina and got in James' face.

James, though, said on Monday that he meant no disrespect to Ntilikina.

He threw in a shot at former Knicks president of basketball operations Phil Jackson when discussing the current state of the team, per James Herbert of CBS Sports: "They're playing some good basketball". Kanter and James stood face-to-face for a few moments and were assessed double technical fouls. "That's what we're playing for. So we got all three covered". Once again, NY delivered what seemed to be a finishing blow with another 18-2 run that pushed its advantage to 71-49 late in the third frame. With "King James" leading the way late in the game, the Cavaliers ultimately produced a 43-point fourth quarter while overcoming a 15-point deficit heading into the final frame.

Cleveland outscored NY 43-25 in the pivotal fourth period as Kyle Korver poured in 19 and James dished out eight assists.

"I wasn't even thinking about (Ntilikina) when I was talking about Dennis Smith", said James.
