(NBA) Knicks withstand Magic run
(12-24 12:15)

The New York Knicks lost Carmelo Anthony to a sprained ankle, but turned back a furious Orlando rally to post a 103-98 victory over the Magic in a US National Basketball Association game in Orlando on Monday.
Knicks forward Anthony had 19 points when he departed the contest mid way through the third quarter after appearing to twist his left ankle on Orlando center Nikola Vucevic's foot while trying to grab an offensive rebound.
His exit signaled the start of a Magic surge as they erased a 24-point halftime deficit and narrowed the gap to 83-84 with 8:28 left to play.
The Knicks had welcomed Raymond Felton back to action after a six-game absence with a sore left hamstring.
But Felton exited in the fourth quarter with a right groin strain, finishing with 13 points and four assists in 25-plus minutes.
J.R. Smith had 18 points and 10 rebounds, while Tyson Chandler scored 10 points to go with 13 rebounds for the Knicks, who beat the Magic for an eighth straight time.
Arron Afflalo led the Magic with 26 points and Glen Davis chipped in 20 for an Orlando team that have lost 11 of their last 13 contests.—AFP
