Larry huge in comeback over Knicks

LeBronís sprained ankle forced him to sit out his first game of the season but the Cavaliers, with the help of a late fourth quarter surge, topped the Knicks Thursday night 91-87. Larry Hughes may have finally found his rhythm, scoring 26 points and grabbing 13 rebounds. In his sixth game back from injury, Hughes provided the offensive spark in the second half and made several key plays down the stretch. Ilgauskas and Marshall each added 17 points.

“It took awhile,” Marshall said. “It feels good to come back, not just without LeBron. We don’t want to go stumbling into the playoffs, but playing good ball like we have most of the year.”

Somebody had to step up in LeBronís absence and itís great to see Larry get back on track. He struggled in the first half but took control in the fourth when the Cavs needed a push. Larry is still fighting to find his shot but as long as he continues to take the ball to the hole and play solid defense he will be fine.
