The New York Knicks are having a historically bad season, losing a franchise-record 17th straight game in the NBA on Monday.
The Knicks and Cavaliers entered their matchup as the two worst teams in the Eastern Conference, but Cleveland came out on top 107-104.
Collin Sexton led Cleveland with 20 points. He was not very efficient, but Larry Nance Jr. chipped in with 15 points and 16 rebounds on just five-of-six shooting.
New York got their scoring from an unusual source. Second-year guard Kadeem Allen paced the Knicks with a career-high 25 points.
The Knicks remain last in the Eastern Conference at 10-46 and will play the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday.
Drummond dominates for Detroit
Andre Drummond notched 32 points, 17 rebounds and four steals in the Detroit Pistons' 121-112 victory over the Washington Wizards.
Paul George recorded a 47-point triple-double to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder past the Portland Trail Blazers 120-111.
Lou Williams scored 45 points against the Minnesota Timberwolves, but the Los Angeles Clippers fell short 130-120.
Nic Batum scored two points on one-of-eight shooting as the Charlotte Hornets fell to the Indiana Pacers 99-90.
Kris Dunn scored two points on one-of-nine shooting in the Chicago Bulls' 112-99 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.
Leonard, Harden shine
