Carmelo Anthony scored just enough on
Wednesday to set a franchise record and help the Knicks to victory.

Anthony scored 20 points to go with seven rebounds and five assists as New
York grinded out a 113-97 triumph over the Orlando Magic at Madison Square
Garden.

Posting his 30th straight game with at least 20 points, Anthony surpassed
Richie Guerin for most consecutive performances in team history.

Tyson Chandler added 21 points and seven rebounds, while Amare Stoudemire once
again excelled in his bench role, scoring 14 points on a perfect 7-for-7
shooting. Raymond Felton added 15 points with nine assists in New York’s third
win in four games.

JJ Redick scored a game-high 29 points and Jameer Nelson posted 21, but the
struggling Magic dropped their seventh straight and 18th in 20 games.
