Melo helps Knicks win

Ap
Sunday, January 27, 2013

BOSTON - The Knicks ended an 11-game losing streak in Boston as Carmelo Anthony scored 28 points and won his rematch with Kevin Garnett in New York's 89-86 victory over the Celtics on Friday.

It came 17 days after a verbal clash between the All-Star forwards led to Anthony's one-game suspension following Boston's 102-96 victory in New York.

Anthony was booed frequently on Thursday but there was no sign of hostility with Garnett. At one point, Anthony even extended his hand to a fallen Garnett and helped the Celtic to his feet.

Rajon Rondo led the Celtics with 23 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists. Garnett had only eight points but finished with a game-high 12 rebounds.

Meanwhile, Toronto's DeMar DeRozan swished in a fadeaway jumper at the final buzzer as the Raptors fought off a late-game charge to beat the Orlando Magic 97-95.

DeRozan led Toronto with 22 points, followed by Amir Johnson with 21 points and 10 rebounds. It was Johnson's sixth double-double of the season.

Nikola Vucevic led Orlando with 19 points and 14 rebounds.
