Minneapolis, MN (SportsNetwork.com) - Carmelo Anthony scored 33 points and the New York Knicks snapped their seven-game losing streak with a 118-106 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday.

Amar'e Stoudemire and Raymond Felton added 18 points apiece and Tyson Chandler scored 15 with 14 rebounds as the Knicks also stopped a five-game road skid.

Kevin Love scored 19 points and Nikola Pekovic had 17 to lead Minnesota, which had a three-game winning streak snapped, falling for just the second time in eight games.
