WEDNESDAY'S GAMES

Knicks 95, Hawks 82: Carmelo Anthony scored 40 points, Raymond Felton had three straight baskets in a key spurt, and New York beat Atlanta for its 10th straight victory. Anthony, coming off a 50-point effort against Miami on Tuesday, scored 24 points in the first half. He shot 17 of 27 from the field and was 5 for 6 from the free throw line.

"Melo is smart enough to know that if he's doubled, he'll sacrifice the ball," said Knicks coach Mike Woodson. "And we've got enough shooters around him that are making big shots. That opens it up for him even more."

  • Hawks center Zaza Pachulia will miss the remainder of the season after having surgery to repair his sore right Achilles.

    Nets 113, Cavaliers 95: Deron Williams scored 24 points and Brooklyn ended an eight-game road trip by crushing Cleveland, giving the Nets a record for road wins in a season. Brooklyn's 21 road wins are the most for the franchise, which moved to the New York City borough from New Jersey this season.

    Grizzlies 94, Trail Blazers 76: Mike Conley scored 20 points and Memphis set a franchise record for wins in a season.

    Rockets 112, Kings 102: Chandler Parsons scored 29 points and James Harden added 21 to lead Houston over Sacramento.
