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.
