Kyrie Irving's huge game helps put Knicks in record books (VIDEO)

The New York Knicks got into the record books Thursday night. Too bad it was not the kind of notoriety they hoped for. And, after falling to the Cavaliers for their sixth straight loss, the team is officially off to the worst start in Knickerbockers history.

Kyrie Irving scored a season-high 37 points, including a layup with 10 seconds left to lead the Cavs over the Knicks 90-87, dropping the reeling New Yorkers to 4-16.

Setting a new low for the franchise.

Carmelo Anthony had one of the worst nights of his Knicks career — going 4-for-19 — and couldn’t close the deal at the end as his miserable evening ended with a missed 3-pointer that rimmed out over LeBron James in the final seconds.

Irving carried the Cavs most of the night before James had five straight points late in the game that helped Cleveland pull it out. 

Here's the clutch teardrop by New Jersey's Irving:

To put Melo's night in perspective, teammate Quincy Acy finished the game with six more points. Yes, that Quincy Acy.
