Knicks End 3-Game NBA Losing Skid While Nets Win Sixth Straight

Jan. 14 (Bloomberg) -- The New York Knicks ended a three-game losing streak with a 100-87 win against the New Orleans Hornets, while the Brooklyn Nets won their sixth game in a row with a 97-86 defeat of the Indiana Pacers.

Carmelo Anthony scored a game-high 27 points for the Knicks yesterday, his 24th straight National Basketball Association game with at least 20 points. Rookie Chris Copeland added 22 points at Madison Square Garden in New York as the Knicks improved to 24-13.

“It’s huge, but we were very confident coming into this game that we were going to get this win,” Copeland said in a televised interview. “We were locked in early.”

The Hornets dropped to 11-26 after having their four-game winning run halted.

New York is one game behind the Eastern Conference-leading Miami Heat. The Knicks hold a two-game advantage over Brooklyn (22-15) atop the Atlantic division.

The Nets ended the Pacers’ four-game winning streak yesterday in Brooklyn as Deron Williams had 22 points and nine assists. Joe Johnson added 20 points for the Nets, while Brook Lopez had 15 points and nine rebounds.

The San Antonio Spurs won their 12th home game in a row, beating the Minnesota Timberwolves 106-88, while the Denver Nuggets pushed their winning streak to a season-high five games with a 116-105 victory against the Golden State Warriors. The Oklahoma City Thunder topped the Portland Trail Blazers 87-83.
