Cavaliers Players Celebrate Comeback Win over Knicks with 'Arthur' Posts

Avoiding a near calamity at Madison Square Garden, the Cleveland Cavaliers erased a 23-point deficit to defeat the New York Knicks 104-101 on Monday night.

Sparked by Kyle Korver's hot hand, Cleveland made nine three-pointers in a 43-point fourth quarter. LeBron James drained a game-winning triple over Kristaps Porzingis to stun the Big Apple crowd.

Inspired by James' angry Arthur meme post from last week, a few players shared their own pictures of the young anthropomorphic aardvark. This time, however, the Instagram posts conveyed a happier mood.

Isaiah Thomas—who watched the rally from the sidelines—kicked off the trend. This prompted Channing Frye, Dwyane Wade and Jeff Green to join the fun.

The defending three-time Eastern Conference champions sure are happy about improving to 7-7 by narrowly beating a team that hasn't reached the playoffs since 2013.
