Anthony’s 35 Leads Knick Past Lakers
NEW YORK (AP) — Carmelo Anthony followed his 62-point game with 35 more, and the New York Knicks beat the Los Angeles Lakers 110-103 on Sunday.
Anthony finished with two points fewer than he had at halftime of his record-setting night Friday, but he scored six straight New York points down the stretch after the Lakers had cut the Knicks' lead to two with just over 5 minutes left.
And he had plenty of help as the Knicks won their second straight following a five-game losing streak.
Raymond Felton scored 20 points, Tim Hardaway Jr. had 18 and J.R. Smith 16 for the Knicks. Tyson Chandler had 13 points and 14 rebounds.
Jodie Meeks scored 24 points for the Lakers, but he was shut out in the fourth quarter after scoring 16 in the third. Pau Gasol had 20 points and 13 rebounds as the Lakers dropped their fourth straight to finish 2-5 on their Grammy Awards road trip.
