Knicks win with 14 3-pointers

NEW ORLEANS — Carmelo Anthony scored 29 and the Knicks extended the undermanned Hornets' losing streak to four games with a 102-80 victory Tuesday night.

Raymond Felton added 15 points, making five of New York's 14 3-pointers.

Tyson Chandler had 12 rebounds for the Knicks, who have won two straight since their first loss of the season and are 8-1 for the third time in franchise history. The other times, the 1969-70 and 1972-73 seasons, they won championships.

Ryan Anderson, starting for Anthony Davis, led the Hornets with 15 points. Davis was ruled out shortly before tipoff because of left ankle tenderness. He is listed as day to day and has not been ruled out tonight at Indiana.

Austin Rivers added 14 points and Brian Roberts 13 for New Orleans.

Haslem can set Heat rebound mark tonight

MIAMI — Udonis Haslem, two rebounds from passing Alonzo Mourning as the Heat's all-time best rebounder, can set the record in tonight's home game against the Bucks.

Mourning had 4,807 rebounds in 593 regular-season games; Haslem has played 605 games.

Coach Erik Spoelstra said he knows the moment will be "pretty special," especially considering that Haslem is a Miami native who was a long shot to make the team after being undrafted out of Florida.

"It's a great story, coming from Liberty City, not being drafted and absolutely earning everything he's gotten in this league and for this organization," Spoelstra said. "I've said this time and time again: We have core values for this organization. We can list them for you, we can define them for you, or we can just give a picture of UD. That will tell the whole story."

"The memories are what I'll save," said Haslem, 32. "Hopefully, I won't get old or Alzheimer's or something and (forget) that I was the rebounding champion. The memories are what I'll really hold onto, what are dearest to my heart."

How did Haslem become such a prolific rebounder?

"It's pride," he said. "It's just mental toughness. The way I was going to make my niche to make this team was to hit the boards and rebound. I wasn't a great rebounder in college. Not nearly what I am now. I just really focused in and put my mind on chasing the boards."

GAME HIGHLIGHTS: Nick Young scored 23 off the bench, Jason Richardson had six of his 21 points late in the fourth quarter, and the host 76ers rallied past the Raptors 106-98. Known for his nickname, Swaggy P, Young had four assists and three rebounds to go with 7-for-13 shooting. "That's all part of the Swaggy P movement," Young said. "I felt good."

around the league: Mavs forward Dirk Nowitzki doesn't expect to play until mid December at the earliest. He had arthroscopic right knee surgery Oct. 19. … Warriors center Andrew Bogut is scheduled to miss at least three more games, which would make nine total, as he strengthens a surgically repaired left ankle.
