Carmelo Anthony was hungry, and not just to end the Knicks' losing streak. He wanted something to eat. Anthony, struggling to keep his energy up while fasting for two weeks, snapped out of a slow start by scoring 18 of his 27 points in the second quarter, and New York ended its three-game skid with a 100-87 victory over the visiting New Orleans Hornets on Sunday. The all-star forward said that he hadn't had any meats or carbohydrates in 15 days, and that his body just felt "depleted out there.

CARMELO ANTHONY tripped, stumbled and fell. The New York Knicks picked themselves up and won without him. Amare Stoudemire scored 22 points, J.R. Smith added 18 and the Knicks overcame a 22-point deficit and the loss of Anthony, their All-Star forward who went out with a knee injury in the first half, to beat the Cavaliers, 102-97, on Monday night and end a 10-game losing streak in Cleveland. The Knicks trailed 52-30 in the second quarter when Anthony got twisted up after catching a pass near midcourt and dropped to the floor.

NEW YORK Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony said Tuesday he lost his cool after Boston's Kevin Garnett said things to him that he feels shouldn't be said to "another man. " Anthony said he sought out Garnett after the Knicks' loss to Boston on Monday night so they could discuss it. He would not elaborate on what was said. Anthony went toward the Celtics' locker room and waited for Garnett outside the team bus. He said they have spoken and sorted out the matter. "There's certain things that you just don't say to men, another man," Anthony said.

NEW YORK Knicks owner James Dolan has reportedly gone stealth. According to a story in the Star-Ledger of Newark, N.J., Dolan secretly recorded everything star forward Carmelo Anthony said during Friday's loss to the Bulls at Madison Square Garden. That was the first game Anthony played after serving a one-game suspension for his confrontations, both on and off the court, with Celtics forward Kevin Garnett last Monday. According to the report, two MSG Network audio technicians, carrying parabola microphones - those umbrella-like things you see on NFL sidelines - were told to record everything Anthony said during the game and then send the tape to Dolan.

CARMELO ANTHONY was suspended one game by the NBA on Wednesday for confronting Kevin Garnett after the New York Knicks' loss to Boston on Monday. Anthony, who was angry about Garnett's choice of words during a fourth-quarter altercation, went toward the Celtics' locker room after the game and later waited for Garnett outside Boston's team bus. Anthony didn't believe he would be suspended because he was just looking to talk to Garnett, not fight. But NBA executive vice president of operations Stu Jackson ruled otherwise.

NEW YORK KNICKS star Carmelo Anthony asked to be taken out of the game before he injured his left knee in the second quarter against Cleveland on Monday night. Knicks coach Mike Woodson told ESPN New York 98.7 FM that Anthony said he was experiencing discomfort in his knee and asked to come out of the game. Woodson, claiming to be "stubborn," said he made a "mistake" by not granting the All-Star forward's request. A short time later, Anthony tripped on his own and left the game with 6:42 left in the second quarter.

LONDON - One more for the gold, and seemingly nothing that can prevent it. This U.S. men's Olympic basketball team might not slow down until it's standing at the center of the medals platform again. Kevin Durant scored 19 points, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony added 18 apiece, and the U.S. team powered its way back to the gold-medal game by beating Argentina, 109-83, on Friday night. "Anything less than this would have been unsatisfying for us," Anthony said. "We believe that we could get here, and we're here now. We got one game left.

THERE DOESN'T seem to be much of a difference between the New York Knicks and the 76ers this season. Both are woefully bad and seem to be in a backward race to see which team can secure the bottom spot in the standings. The biggest difference is the Knicks (7-36) have a superstar in Carmelo Anthony, while the Sixers (8-34) are still searching for a go-to player in close games. Michael Carter-Williams tried to be that player against New York last night at Wells Fargo Center, but he shot just 10-of-26.

NEW YORK - The New York Knicks had lost 16 consecutive games when Jose Calderon, one of their starting guards, spotted up in the right corner and caught a bounce pass from Carmelo Anthony against the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday. Calderon had missed eight of his nine shots in the game. The Knicks had once led by 15 points and, even though neither Anthony Davis nor Jrue Holiday was playing for New Orleans, now led by one. There were 38.7 seconds left in regulation. If Calderon missed the shot, no one at Madison Square Garden would have expected the Knicks to win. No one. After 16 straight curveballs, who still sits on a fastball?

Nerlens Noel, who recently indicated he was sick and tired of not getting the ball enough, was merely sick on Wednesday night. He showed up for work with flulike symptoms and was sent home for the evening. That left the Sixers without two of their starters, not to mention their leading scorer, as they faced off against the suddenly-awful New York Knicks in one of those fabulous NBA races to the bottom of the standings. By that measure, the Sixers won by losing again, dropping a 98-91 game to the Knicks, who were buoyed by the presence of gimpy-kneed Carmelo Anthony, who has missed 10 games already this season.

NEW YORK - Walt Frazier, the flamboyantly attired and loquacious broadcaster, Hall of Fame guard, and two-time NBA champion with the New York Knicks, could speak only in single-word sentences when describing this nightmarish season for the tenants of Madison Square Garden. "Depressing. Surreal. Appalling. Devastating," said Frazier, choosing his words carefully. Then, putting together some longer sentences, he added, "It's something we never thought would happen. We thought we would be a playoff team.

Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks broke out just enough to stay in it. Anthony scored 28 points and the Knicks avoided elimination in the Eastern Conference semifinals with an 85-75 victory over the Indiana Pacers in Game 5 on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden. Reserves J.R. Smith and Chris Copeland each had 13 points for the Knicks, who trail three games to two and will need a victory Saturday in Indiana to force a seventh game back in New York on Monday.

Zach Randolph had 25 points and 19 rebounds, and the host Memphis Grizzlies ended Utah's playoff hopes with an 86-70 victory over the Jazz on Wednesday. The Grizzlies' victory meant the Los Angeles Lakers were assured of making the playoffs and rendered their late Wednesday game against the Houston Rockets moot.
