Anthony, Knicks feed off London

LONDON — Back in London and back on the basketball court, Carmelo Anthony went right back to his winning ways.

The Knicks star was the main attraction at the O2 Arena on Thursday, five months after he helped the United States win the Olympic gold at the same venue.

This time, he led the Knicks over the Pistons, 102-87 in the third regular-season NBA game played in the British capital.

"It felt good out there," said Anthony, who scored 18 of his 26 points in the first half. "I definitely had some flashbacks out there."

Anthony's strong showing might be attributed to his diet. He recently ended a two-week fasting period and seems to be getting his strength back.

"I felt better than I was the last couple of games," Anthony said. "I'm back eating right, eating what I'm supposed to be eating."

Around the league: Players should consider whether they want to keep Billy Hunter as executive director of their union after a series of wrongdoings, according to a review of the union. The report found no evidence of illegal use of funds but revealed that Hunter, 70, withheld knowledge that his contract was never properly approved, used poor judgment in making hires and spent improperly on travel and gifts.

Lebron to 20,000: Miami's LeBron James became the youngest player in league history to score 20,000 when he hit a pull-up jumper in the lane from 12 feet in the second quarter of a 92-75 victory late Wednesday over the Warriors. "The best part about it is I was in a rhythm, too, so it wasn't one of those forced shots," James said. "It's pretty cool." Lakers star Kobe Bryant got to 20,000 when he was 29 years, 122 days old. James was 28 years, 17 days Wednesday.
