NEW YORK (AP) - Carmelo Anthony had 20 points and 11 rebounds, and the New York Knicks snapped a seven-game home losing streak by beating the Orlando Magic 121-83 on Friday night for their first victory at Madison Square Garden since October.
Andrea Bargnani and J.R. Smith each added 17 points for the Knicks, who followed their 113-83 rout of Brooklyn on Thursday with an even more powerful performance, giving them consecutive victories for the first time this season after a nine-game losing streak.
The Knicks hadn't won at home since beating Milwaukee in their season opener on Oct. 30. The seven-game skid had matched the longest in franchise history, set during the 2007-08 season.
