Recap: New York vs. Orlando

New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Carmelo Anthony had a double-double with 20 points and 11 rebounds as the New York Knicks routed the Orlando Magic, 121-83, from Madison Square Garden.

The Knicks, who held a 62-29 scoring advantage in the second half, secured their second blowout win in as many nights. On Thursday, they won at Brooklyn, 113-83, to snap a nine-game skid.

"We got tired of losing," Anthony said. "I think everybody's starting to get on the same page. Everyone's doing their job and as a result of that we're starting to win basketball games."

Andrea Bargnani and J.R. Smith each chipped in 17 points, while Tim Hardaway Jr. and Raymond Felton added 15 and 14, respectively.

Arron Afflalo scored 20 points and rookie Victor Oladipo finished with 17 points and nine rebounds for Orlando, which has lost its last four.

"I think the results of their game in Brooklyn carried over to this game," Orlando coach Jacque Vaughn said. "They shot the ball extremely well like they did in Brooklyn, so there you have an NBA game for you."

Orlando cut the lead to three early in the third but the Knicks used a 21-7 run that started with a Bargnani dunk. Shumpert used a thunderous slam through the lane that gave New York a 79-63 lead with 2:42 to play, and the run was capped by Smith's 3-pointer.

New York led 89-69 heading to the fourth. The Knicks smothered the Magic in the final quarter, outscoring the visitors 32-14.

Anthony's jumper gave the Knicks an early 5-4 lead, but the Magic went on an 11-0 run. Jameer Nelson opened the burst with a triple and Oladipo converted 3-pointers on back-to-back trips to cap the run.

Later in the quarter, Felton made a three which was the first bucket of a 9-2 run to pull the Knicks within 19-16 with 4:32 left.

Orlando led by the three point margin at the end of one, 31-28.

Orlando's Ronnie Price opened the second quarter with a three and New York proceeded to go on a 15-1 run as Hardaway opened and closed the spurt with triples. The Knicks went 5-of-6 from deep to open the frame.
