Chris Trotman/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The New York Knicks erased a 17-point deficit and beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 120-103, Wednesday night.

Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 22 points, but it was hardly all about Melo. Six Knicks scored in double figures.

Jeremy Lin had 19 points and 13 assists.

“I think our second unit did an awesome job,” Lin said. “I think we’ve been talking a lot about our depth and tonight we definitely got to see the depth, and so that’s going to be a strength of ours and we need to continue to use that.”

The Knicks now get a couple days off before they head to Boston to take on the Celtics.
