Anthony, Knicks Top Pacers for 7th Straight Win
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Carmelo Anthony scored 34 points, making the go-ahead jumper with 4.9 seconds left and blocking a potential winning attempt, helping the New York Knicks beat the Indiana Pacers 110-109 on Sunday night for their seventh straight win.

Chauncey Billups had 21 points and seven assists, and Toney Douglas scored 14 for the Knicks (42-38), who moved a game ahead of idle Philadelphia for the No. 6 seed in the Eastern Conference playoff chase.

Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire missed his second straight game with a sprained left ankle. Coach Mike D'Antoni said he could return Tuesday against Chicago.

Danny Granger had 20 points and Roy Hibbert added 19 points and 10 rebounds for Indiana (37-44). The Pacers are locked into the No. 8 seed.
