Anthony Has 30th Straight 20-Point Game in Knicks Win Over Magic

Jan. 31 (Bloomberg) -- Tyson Chandler scored 21 points and Carmelo Anthony set a team record with his 30th straight game of at least 20 points as the New York Knicks handed the Orlando Magic their seventh consecutive loss.

Anthony had 20 points and the Knicks won 113-97 in the National Basketball Association contest. Anthony, averaging 29.4 points per game this season, surpassed Richie Guerin’s franchise mark of 29 consecutive 20-point games in 1961-62.

The Knicks (28-15) lead the Eastern Conference’s five-team Atlantic Division by 2 1/2 games over the Brooklyn Nets (27-19) who lost 105-85 at home last night to the Eastern Conference-leading Miami Heat (29-13).

Raymond Felton added 15 points for the Knicks, who improved to 16-6 this season on their home court at Madison Square Garden. The teams were tied 51-51 at the half before the Knicks outscored the Magic 62-46 in the second half.

J.J. Redick had 29 points for the Magic (14-31) and Jameer Nelson contributed 21 points. The Magic were playing without leading scorer Arron Afflalo, who has a strained left calf, and Glen Davis left four minutes into the game with a broken left foot.

At the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, LeBron James had 24 points and nine rebounds, Dwyane Wade scored 21 and Chris Bosh added 16 for the Heat. Brook Lopez had 21 points for the Nets.

The game was tied 49-49 at halftime before the Heat surged in the third quarter, outscoring Brooklyn 36-14 in the period.
