Carmelo Anthony scores 29 in the Knicks’ season-high third straight victory.

NEW YORK — They don't look like the lowly losers of last month. The Knicks are playing as if it's last season, when they even had mighty Miami's number.

Carmelo Anthony scored 29, Andrea Bargnani had 19, and the Knicks beat the Heat 102-92 Thursday for their season-high third straight win.

"You can tell it's different than one month ago," Bargnani said. "Our faces are different, our body language is different."

Raymond Felton had 13 points and 14 assists for the Knicks, who seized control with a 16-2 run spanning the third and fourth quarters and beat the Heat for the fourth time in five meetings over the past two seasons.

New York is 13-22 but has won four of five in 2014.

"It wasn't going to last all season like that," Felton said. "We were just going through a slump, now I feel like we're out of it."

LeBron James scored 32 for the Heat, which didn't get much from Chris Bosh, who was held to six points.

Dwyane Wade scored 23 points but missed all six free throws. "I only missed six," he said. "I didn't miss 20. It wasn't that … bad."

All-Star voting: Stephen Curry, an All-Star snub last season, moved past Chris Paul into second among Western Conference guards in the latest fan balloting numbers released. Curry trails the Lakers' Kobe Bryant but is about 26,000 votes ahead of Paul, the injured Clippers' point guard. Voting runs through Jan. 20, and the starters for the Feb. 16 game in New Orleans will be announced Jan. 23. LeBron James leads all players with 1.076 million votes.

Around the league: Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe will have surgery on his right knee and be sidelined indefinitely, the Associated Press reported.
