Anthony scores 37, Knicks beat Blazers to end skid at 4

Posted: Updated:

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Carmelo Anthony tied a season high with 37 points and New York Knicks rallied from a 10-point, fourth-quarter deficit to beat the Portland Trail Blazers 112-110 on Saturday night.

Anthony, who scored 20 points in the first half, shot 13 of 21 from the field as New York ended a four-game losing streak. Anthony finished the game by hitting six free throws during the final 30 seconds.

Former Blazers Robin Lopez and Arron Afflalo, returning to Portland for the first time since leaving the team in free agency last summer, were among six Knicks in double figures. Afflalo scored 15 points, while Lopez had 14 points and seven rebounds.

Damian Lillard led Portland with 30 points but missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer that would have won the game after he chased down the rebound of his intentionally missed free throw.
