Recap: New York vs. LA Lakers

New York, NY ( - 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.
