Knicks reach 5-0; Magic skid at five

ORLANDO — Carmelo Anthony scored 25 and J.R. Smith and Raymond Felton each added 21 as the Knicks held off the Magic 99-89 Tuesday night.

The Knicks are 5-0 for the first time since opening the 1993-94 season 7-0 and reaching the Finals.

J.J. Redick scored 18 and Arron Afflalo added 13 for the Magic, which had 20 turnovers that led to 24 New York points. Orlando has lost five straight.

GAME highlights: The visiting Raptors beat the Pacers 74-72 despite setting franchise lows in the fourth quarter with one field goal and five points.

AROUND the league: Commissioner David Stern estimates revenue will be a record $5 billion this season, an increase of about 20 percent from the last full season in 2010-11. He also said expansion to Europe is probably at least a decade away and predicted adding several clubs there at once. … Grizzlies assistant GM Kenny Williamson, 65, died of cancer. He also worked for the Bobcats and Knicks, and his 21 years as a college assistant included FSU from 1988-94. … First-round pick Royce White is not with the Rockets and said they have been "inconsistent" in their agreement to help him cope with anxiety disorder. The team said "Royce is not available now" and that it supports him.

    TAMPA — There's no telling what DeSean Jackson will do once he gets a football in his hands.

    ST. PETERSBURG — RHP Jake Odorizzi is hoping his struggles this season can be tied directly to the lower-back strain he has tried to pitch through since spring training. Toward that end, the Rays placed Odorizzi on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday retroactive to Tuesday.

    It is going to get interesting tonight when the Rays begin a four-game series against the Yankees in New York. The Rays feel they are good enough to win the East Division. These next four games and the four that follow in Houston will be a good measuring stick.
