NEW YORK (AP) _ Carmelo Anthony scored 41 points, tying a franchise record with this third straight 40-point game, and the New York Knicks beat the Milwaukee Bucks 101-83 on Friday night.
Anthony, who had 50 points and 40 in his previous two games, equaled Bernard King's 1984-85 mark.
J.R. Smith added 30 points for the Knicks, who used a huge third quarter to turn around the game after a lackluster first half on the night they honored their 1972-73 NBA championship team.
Brandon Jennings scored 25 points for the Bucks.
