New York, NY (Sports Network) - Carmelo Anthony recorded his third straight
game of 40 or more points, and the New York Knicks earned their 11th
consecutive victory by putting forth a huge second half to register a 101-83
win over the Milwaukee Bucks at Madison Square Garden.
After racking up 50 points at Miami on Tuesday and 40 in a triumph at Atlanta
the following night, Anthony put up 41 on a sizzling 17-of-28 shooting and
added a game-high 14 rebounds. Eighteen of Anthony's points came during a
third quarter in which the Knicks shot 79 percent from the field and outscored
the Bucks by a whopping 42-21 margin.
J.R. Smith had a huge night as well for New York, which hasn't lost since a
93-80 setback at the Los Angeles Clippers on March 17. The Knicks' sixth man
came through with 30 points while grabbing 10 rebounds to help his team
overcome an early 10-point deficit.
Brandon Jennings led the slumping Bucks, losers in seven of their last nine
outings, with 25 points. J.J. Redick netted 18 points in the setback, with
Larry Sanders scoring nine to go along with 12 rebounds.
