A pall hung over New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson on Saturday as he broke the stunning news to reporters before his team's 113-84 blowout victory over visiting Utah.

Amare Stoudemire faces another knee surgery. He's expected to miss six weeks, which pegs his return around April 20 -- three days after the Knicks' regular-season finale. He also missed the first 30 games due to knee surgery.

And despite an inspiring victory without Carmelo Anthony and Stoudemire -- the Knicks led by 32 in the fourth quarter -- they do not know how this blow will impact their season.

"It's a loss, a major loss," Woodson said of Stoudemire. "But we can't sulk. Guys have to step up."

Anthony missed his third straight game because of a stiff/sore right knee. He'll be re-evaluated Sunday before the Knicks leave for a five-game road trip that begins Monday against the Warriors.

No Amare? No Carmelo? No problem -- at least for one night. Backups J.R. Smith (24 points) and Steve Novak (20) led the way for New York.

The Jazz completed a 0-4 trip that dropped it into a tie with the Los Angeles Lakers for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Suns 107, Rockets 105: Goran Dragic scored 13 of his 18 points and delivered a key hustle play in the fourth quarter to help host Phoenix win. The Suns overcame 38 points from Houston's James Harden. Phoenix, out of playoff contention, has three straight wins over the postseason-hopeful Rockets.

Nuggets 111, Timberwolves 88: Ty Lawson had 32 points, and Denver beat Minnesota to stretch its home win streak to 13 games, its longest in 14 years. The Nuggets have won eight in a row overall.

Nets 93, Hawks 80: Former Stanford star Brook Lopez had 18 points and nine rebounds, and host Brooklyn won its third straight game.

Grizzlies 96, Hornets 85: Mike Conley had 22 points, and Memphis beat visiting New Orleans for its fourth straight victory.
