Rose's big fourth helps carry Bulls

NEW YORK — Derrick Rose scored 32, including 15 during the fourth, to lead the Bulls past the Knicks 105-102 Thursday.

With Chicago up 88-83, Rose scored on three consecutive possessions. On the second, he split Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire for a layup.

Stoudemire scored 34 but missed a 3 that would have tied it with 10 seconds left. Anthony scored 26 but just four in the fourth for New York, losers of 10 of 12. Twice in the last two minutes, his shot was blocked.

"For the most part, we played extremely hard," Anthony said. "We've got to pat ourselves on the back for something."

Game highlights: Tim Duncan scored 19 in the Spurs' 93-81 win over the Hornets. San Antonio is a league-best 12-1 at home. … Rudy Gay scored 21 in the visi­ting Grizzlies' 96-77 win over the Hawks. Atlanta also lost center Jason Collins to a sprained left elbow. While chasing a loose ball, his arm was pinned under Dante Cunningham's.

James mulls dunking: Heat star LeBron James said he might compete in the dunk contest during All-Star weekend. He said a lot will depend on how his legs feel.

Around the league: The league has told teams former Nuggets forward Kenyon Martin can be signed, ESPN.com reported. He played in China and was not expected to be available until that season ended, on Feb. 15. … Bobcats swingman Gerald Henderson is out 2-4 weeks with a strained right hamstring, the Associated Press reported. Henderson, avera­ging 15 points, was hurt Wednesday against the Blazers.
