NBA Game Summary - LA Lakers at New York



(Sunday, January 26th)

Final Score: New York 110, LA Lakers 103

New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Carmelo Anthony followed up Friday's historic performance with 35 points in the New York Knicks' 110-103 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers at Madison Square Garden.

Anthony, who set a new Knicks and current Garden record with 62 points in a 125-96 blowout of Charlotte two days prior, added five assists to help deal the injury-plagued Lakers a fourth consecutive defeat.

"I wasn't looking to score 50 tonight," he said afterward.

Raymond Felton contributed 20 points on 8-of-10 shooting to the win, with Tim Hardaway Jr. scoring 15 of his 18 points in the second half.

Jodie Meeks went 6-of-8 from 3-point range to pace the Lakers with 24 points, while Pau Gasol had 20 along with 13 rebounds. Manny Harris ended with 18 points for Los Angeles, which concluded a seven-game road trip with a 2-5 record.

Hardaway hit a pair of big shots on back-to-back possessions early in the fourth quarter, with the rookie draining a 3-pointer that snapped an 83-83 tie and coming through with a second-chance bucket that put the Knicks up by five with 10:35 left.

New York kept the Lakers at bay the rest of the way, sealing the game with a late 8-2 run in which Anthony netted the first six points before Felton's jumper gave the Knicks a 107-99 lead with 1:31 remaining.

Meeks led an 8-0 flurry that put the Lakers up 55-54 early in a back-and-forth third quarter that saw 10 lead changes and neither team ahead by more than five points. Hardaway sent New York in front into the fourth by knocking down a triple and converting an alley-oop dunk from Anthony, with the last of those buckets creating an 83-79 differential with 1:14 remaining in the session.

"Again, we just find a way to lose," Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni remarked. "It just oozes away from us."

The Lakers shot a solid 57.1 percent in the first quarter to claim a 25-22 lead at period's end, and put forth a 7-1 run early in the second to open up a 32-26 advantage three minutes into the frame. The Knicks countered with a 7-1 surge later in the stanza to forge a 35-35 tie following a Tyson Chandler 3- point play.

New York went into the break owning a four-point edge after closing out the half on a 12-5 burst. Iman Shumpert buried a go-ahead trey with 2:23 left and Anthony accounted for the Knicks' final six points, giving him 20 at the intermission and his team a 51-47 lead.

"I thought he came out early and established himself and [was] shooting the heck out of the ball, and it still carried throughout the game," said Knicks head coach Mike Woodson of Anthony.

Game Notes

Chandler posted a double-double of 13 points and 14 rebounds ... The Lakers have now allowed over 100 points in 12 straight games, their longest such streak since 1988-89 ... Harris, signed to a second 10-day contract prior to the game, went 6-of-9 from the field ... Gasol delivered a fourth straight outing of at least 20 points and 10 rebounds ... Los Angeles hit 11-of-23 shots from 3-point distance and the Knicks were 11-of-26, with Hardaway going 4-of-5 from beyond the arc ... New York is 12-3 this season when Anthony records four or more assists ... The franchises were facing one another for the first time since Mar. 10, 1960 when both entered the matchup 10 games or more under .500.
