Recap: New Orleans vs. New York

New Orleans, LA (Sports Network) - The New York Knicks have rebounded from their lone loss in emphatic fashion.

Carmelo Anthony tallied 19 of his game-high 29 points in the first quarter and the Knicks opened a three-game road trip with a 102-80 rout of the New Orleans Hornets.

"It was good to get it going early," Anthony said. "Any time you can start off on the road like that, in the first quarter like that, it gives us a lot of confidence."

Anthony's first-quarter total elcipsed New Orleans' 17-point opening stanza.

Raymond Felton recorded 15 points and six assists, J.R. Smith netted 15 and Tyson Chandler pulled down 12 rebounds for New York, which righted itself with an 88-76 home win against the Indiana Pacers Sunday following its defeat to the Memphis Grizzlies two days prior.

The Knicks' road trip continues Wednesday in Dallas and concludes Friday in Houston.

Ryan Anderson had 15 points for the Hornets, who were without rookie Anthony Davis after he injured his ankle during Friday's practice.

New Orleans has dropped four straight contests.

"We made a lot of youthful plays," Hornets head coach Monty Williams said. "I thought we took some very tough shots against a very good team and you can't do that."

The Hornets cut the deficit to 56-52 following an Anderson jumper, but the Knicks countered with a 20-6 run to seize control of the contest.

Ronnie Brewer, who was fouled on a 3-point attempt, made two of the three foul shots to cap the surge and make it 76-58.

The margin swelled to as many as 21 before the visitors took an 83-64 advantage into the final frame.

The lead reached its apex at 26 in the fourth.

New York outscored New Orleans by 12 points in the first and led, 53-48, at the break.

In another move that bucks tradition, the Sharks completely revamped their on- ice leadership structure not by selecting new players to wear the precious singular letters on their uniforms, but by stripping the captaincy from Joe Thornton, removing the alternate tag from Patrick Marleau and leaving the other "A" vacant after Dan Boyle signed as a free agent with the Rangers.
