It was only fitting that some of the NBA's biggest stars were at their best at the basketball center of the universe known as MSG. Carmelo Anthony had a stellar game and finished with 35 points on 10-of-26 shooting and added eight rebounds. Tyson Chandler notched a career-high 28 rebounds and added 16 points of his own to lift New York (34-20).
J.R. Smith added 26 points off the bench in a balanced effort that saw the bench score 46 points for the Knicks.
The star of the game in the losing effort was Curry, whose career-high 11 three-pointers weren't enough to overcome the 17 turnovers the Warriors (33-25) had as a team.
The Knicks used 16 offensive rebounds to score 27 second-chance points, despite the Warriors winning the fast break points margin, 16-9.
