Magic Vs. Knicks Final Score: New York Pulls Out Overtime Victory, 113-106

It was a wild finish between the New York Knicks and the Orlando Magic, but the Knicks emerged with a 113-106 victory in overtime. Toney Douglas hit a three-point shot to give the Knicks the lead, but then missed another three in between two Orlando field goals. Still Chauncey Billups sank a three to give the Knicks a 106-104 lead. They never looked back on their way to snapping a six-game losing streak.

Carmelo Anthony scored 39 points, 33 coming in the second half. He grabbed 10 rebounds as well. He and Amare Stoudemire both played solid defense in the final quarter and into overtime. Stoudemire fell short of a double-double with 20 points and nine rebounds. Douglas saw 37 minutes as a reserve and finished with 16 points.

Dwight Howard overcame a slow start to finish with 29 points and 18 rebounds, but he fouled out of the game and received a technical foul in the process, his 17th. Jason Richardson fueled the offense while Howard struggled early on, finishing with 24 points. Gilbert Arenas had a tough night from the field, not making a field goal until the final quarter of regulation. He tallied nine points and 10 rebounds.

Magic Vs. Knicks: Jameer Nelson Out Of The Lineup, Gilbert Arenas Starts

The Orlando Magic will be without point guard Jameer Nelson in Monday's game against the New York Knicks, reports Adam Zagoria of NBA.com. Nelson suffered a sprained left knee in the second quarter of Friday's game against the New Jersey Nets and did not return to the game. He has been listed as day-to-day since then. In three games against New York this season, Nelson averaged 18.3 points and 5.0 assists.

In his place will start Gilbert Arenas, who is coming off a rough game against the Nets. He made only one field goal in 12 tries and missed all five of his three-point attempts. This will be his first start of the season for the Magic, coming off the bench in his previous 44 games for them. However, expect Chris Duhon to also receive a good share of the playing time. He plays about 15 minutes and gives the ball out for 2.3 assists this season.

Magic Vs. Knicks: Carmelo Anthony Tries To Save New York

Things have gotten flat-out ugly for the New York Knicks, now losers of six straight and three games under .500. Fans who coach Mike D'Antoni recently said should turn to Prozac have found their panic completely warranted, as there's actually an outside shot the Knicks could miss the postseason entirely.

That's not likely to happen; the Knicks are 5.5 games up on the Charlotte. Even if the Knicks lose out, it's questionable whether the Bobcats could get the requisite wins to catch them. And the Knicks, for all their warts, aren't going to lose out. They may certainly lose a seventh straight game on Monday, though, as the Knicks are hosting the Orlando Magic (7:30 p.m. ET, local TV and League Pass).

The teams met last week, and Orlando registered a 12-point win. Dwight Howard went bonkers in that game (as he often does against the thin-in-the-middle Knicks), totaling 33 points and 11 assists. In a data point floating under the radar, 'Melo actually had a great game against the Magic, with 24 points on 6-12 shooting and nine assists. It was Amar'e Stoudemire, New York's (literal) Chosen One, who had failed to hold up his end of the bargain. In the two losses since, 'Melo has scored well ... but abandoned the ball movement that helped New York stay within arm's reach against Orlando.

In the meantime, the defense is lousy as ever. The Bucks -- the worst shooting decent team in recent memory -- hung 102 on the Knicks in a down-tempo game on Friday, and Charlotte threw down 114 on Saturday. New York's defense has been bad all year. It's straight up bad now. That's italtics bad.

So when 'Melo calls Monday's game "almost a must-win" ... well, he might want to bark up a different tree, because odds are on the Magic, heavily. For more on the Knicks' woes, check out Posting And Toasting. For more on the Magic, Orlando Pinstriped Post is the right spot.
