Anthony scores 50, Knicks stop Heat

MIAMI — Carmelo Anthony tied his career high with 50 points and the Knicks won their ninth straight game, topping the injury-depleted Heat 102-90 on Tuesday night.

Anthony was 18-for-26, reaching 50 on a jumper with 16.9 seconds remaining."I felt good tonight," he said.

"It's an inopportune time to announce my candidacy for defensive player of the year," Miami's Shane Battier said. "Carmelo had a hell of a game.''

Chris Bosh scored 23 for Miami, which was missing LeBron James (hamstring), Dwyane Wade and Mario Chalmers (both have right ankle sprains). They all are day to day.

Mike Miller added 18 for the Heat, which had a 17-game home winning streak snapped.

around the league: Former NBA player Javaris Crittenton, who in 2010 was suspended for pulling a gun in the Wizards locker room, and his cousin, Douglas Gamble, were charged in a 12-count indictment in the death of an Atlanta woman and the attempted murder of another man. His attorney says he is not guilty. … Chris Hansen, who is trying to bring the Kings to Seattle, said fans have requested 44,000 season tickets in the event the team relocates. Today, owners will discuss the sale and a counter-offer from Sacramento. A decision is expected this month. … Greg Willard, who refereed more than 1,600 games before he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, died Monday at 54.

  1. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Friday's Rays-Yankees game

    The Heater

    Did the Rays make the right call in picking RHP Austin Pruitt rather than top prospect Brent Honeywell? Though Honeywell had tweeted he was as ready as he'd ever be, the Rays felt better going with Pruitt, who gave them the five innings they were seeking.

  2. Damion Lowe returns to Rowdies after eventful Gold Cup

    Soccer

    ST. PETERSBURG — Pretty well emotionally spent, and not at all rested physically having just finished a life-changing stint with his native Jamaica in the Gold Cup, Damion Lowe wants the Rowdies to know he's ready.

    Damion Lowe, right, returns to the Rowdies — though he is likely to get a rest in tonight’s 7:30 home game against Pittsburgh — after an eventful six Gold Cup matches.

    The Heater

    NEW YORK — Sometimes you just have to dig out the good news, and for the Rays on Friday it may well have been that they didn't get no-hit in a 6-1 loss.

    Austin Pruitt waits for Brett Gardner to round the bases after leading off the first with one of three homers Pruitt gives up.

  5. Steve Cishek latest bullpen upgrade for Rays, who now must translate that to wins

    The Heater

    NEW YORK — The Rays made another addition to change the look of their bullpen Friday in acquiring veteran side-armer and former closer Steve Cishek from Seattle.

    Reliever Steve Cishek has a 3.15 ERA in 20 games after recovering from offseason hip surgery and a 1.86 ERA since a rocky second outing of the season.
