Knicks Lose to Magic 102-93 as Ryan Anderson Has Career-Best Day

Jan. 16 (Bloomberg) -- Ryan Anderson scored a career-high 30 points, including seven three-pointers, as the Orlando Magic rallied to beat the New York Knicks 102-93 today at Madison Square Garden.

The Magic hit 17 three-point shots, tied for the most the Knicks have ever allowed, and overcame a four-point fourth-quarter deficit in the victory. Carmelo Anthony led all scorers with 33 points, as the Knicks lost their third consecutive game.

Elsewhere in the National Basketball Association on the Martin Luther King holiday it was the Memphis Grizzlies 102-86 over the Chicago Bulls, who played without last year’s Most Valuable Player Derrick Rose; and Philadelphia 94, Milwaukee 82.

Anthony was 9-27 from the floor and added a team-high five assists after missing the Knicks’ last game with a sprained right ankle. The 27-year-old forward today was named one of 20 finalists for the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team. Knicks rookie guard Iman Shumpert added 12 points.

Anderson has made 43 three-point shots this year, the most in the NBA. Magic center Dwight Howard, an All-Star in each of the last five seasons, scored eight points and added 10 rebounds before fouling out with a minute remaining.

The Magic (9-3) have won four games in a row, and sit atop the Eastern Conference Southeast division standings. The Knicks (6-7) are second in the Atlantic Division, four games behind the Philadelphia 76ers.
