Notebook: Knicks 98, Pelicans 91


Bradley Handwerger, for NBA.com
Posted Thu Feb 20, 2014 12:03 AM - Updated Thu Feb 20, 2014 12:03 AM

THE FACT: The New York Knicks extended their winning streak over the New Orleans Pelicans in the Crescent City to five straight.

THE LEAD: Carmelo Anthony showed once again that one man just might be able to carry a team. The New York Knicks' All-Star finished with 42 points, including 13 in the fourth quarter, and the Knicks overcame a late Pelicans' push to win 98-91 at the Smoothie King Center Wednesday night.

New York (21-33) was coming off of a close loss at Memphis a night earlier. New Orleans, meanwhile, hadn't played in a week. But it was the Pelicans who couldn't close out the game late in the fourth. After a 19-5 run in the middle of the final period gave New Orleans (23-20) its first lead since late in the second quarter, the Knicks (21-33) turned up the defensive heat. New Orleans finished the final 2:27 0-for-3 from the floor with one turnover.

Anthony, meanwhile, did what he had to do. His 13 consecutive points helped New York over a nearly seven-minute span and kept the Knicks in the game when his teammates weren't making shots or even attempting them. He also grabbed four rebounds, had three steals and recorded two blocks and assists each.

J.R. Smith added 19 off the bench for New York, which also got 16 from Tim Hardaway Jr.

The Pelicans were led by Eric Gordon's 28, but all of his points came in the first three quarters. He went 0-for-2 in just four fourth-quarter minutes. Anthony Davis had 14 points, 10 rebounds and five blocked shots while Austin Rivers pitched in 14 points off the bench.

QUOTABLE: "We have the talent. We just got to put it all together. I don't think the talent was ever questioned before but we have to put it all together (The Knicks entered the night 3.5 games out of the No. 8 seed in the East)."
--The Knicks' Anthony on whether New York can make a playoff run

THE STAT: 16 -- The number of assists New Orleans finished with Wednesday night, more than five fewer than the Pelicans were averaging per game heading in. Pelicans coach Monty Williams pointed it out after the game as one of the main things that stood out to him.

TURNING POINT: With 2:08 to play and the Knicks down by one, Anthony threw up a 20-foot shot that was off the mark. However, he followed the ball to the basket, picked up the rebound and deftly put the ball through the hoop. New York never trailed again as the Pelicans didn't score another point.

QUOTABLE II: "When we did get stops and pushed the ball, we looked like our team. But when we held the ball and dribbled the clock out, we just didn't look that great tonight."
-- The Pelicans' Monty Williams on keys to the game

HOT: The Knicks were just 6-for-27 from 3-point range in their Tuesday night loss to Memphis. But Wednesday, in New Orleans, New York, turned it on from outside in the first half, hitting 7 of their 12 3-point attempts it took. It helped the Knicks own a six-point halftime lead.

NOT: With Al-Farouq Aminu not exactly an offensive threat at small forward, the Pelicans rely on Tyreke Evans to give them an offensive boost when he's in the game. But he went just 3-for-11 Wednesday night, recording four fouls, or half as many points as he finished with in more than 22 minutes.

NOTABLE: The Pelicans' Davis has 251 blocks now in his first 109 games, becoming one of just eight players since the 1985-86 season to accomplish such a feat. ... New York's Iman Shumpert left the game in the second half with a left knee injury, but the extent of his injury was unknown immediately after the game. He'll head back to New York for evaluation while the rest of the team heads to Orlando. ... Knicks coach Mike Woodson and New Orleans' Gordon were each assessed technical fouls. ... Only eight New York players got into the game, with five players seeing at least 33 minutes of action.

UP NEXT: For the Pelicans, Friday @ Charlotte, Saturday @ Washington, Monday vs. Lakers. For the Knicks, Friday @ Orlando, Saturday @ Atlanta, Monday vs. Dallas.
