Knicks roll over cross-river rival Nets

It probably wouldn’t have taken another superstar performance by Carmelo Anthony to beat the Nets. But he gave them one anyway.

It probably wouldn’t have taken another superstar performance by Carmelo Anthony to beat the Nets. But he gave them one anyway.

The Knicks (33-29) beat their cross-river rivals, 104-95, in what will be the last game the two ever play before they share the same city.

Anthony finished with 33 points on 11-of-21 shooting, including 6-of-6 from the line and 5-of-7 from 3-point range.

The Knicks — and Anthony specifically — jumped on New Jersey early. Anthony scored 21 points in the first quarter as the Knicks took a 38-22 lead.

It would never be much of a game after that. The Knicks led 64-47 at the half.

Philadelphia (32-30) won last night as well, however, so the Knicks’ remain in the No. 7 seed.
