The New York Knicks took a commanding early lead against the Los Angeles Lakers and held on for a 116-107 victory.

Mike Woodson's club earned a win against their former coach Mike D'Antoni, and the Lakers continue their ineffective play and fall to 9-14.

Carmelo Anthony was on fire for the first two-thirds of the game, but he went down with an ankle injury in the 3rd quarter. The supporting cast stepped up and made enough plays to thwart a Kobe Bryant-led comeback.
