Shumpert drained a three-point shot with 37 seconds left in the game after a wild scramble for a loose ball at halfcourt, but Marco Belinelli responded with a three of his own to tie the game at 101. The Knicks went to Carmelo Anthony in the following possession; he missed a corner three attempt, but Shumpert soared up and tipped in the offensive rebound with one hand for the go-ahead bucket.
Anthony scored 27 points on 10-of-20 shooting in his first game since spraining his ankle against the Orlando Magic. He also had 12 rebounds. Shumpert was efficient while reaching his career-high scoring total. He finished the night 10-of-13 from the field while also making six of his eight three-point attempts.
Belinelli scored a team-high 32 points for San Antonio, but Tim Ducan and Tony Parker combined for just 21 points on 8-for-21 shooting. Manu Ginobili went 4-of-11 from the field, finishing with 11 points and 12 assists.
