The New York Knicks were able to pull away from the New Orleans Hornets in the fourth quarter for a 100-87 win on Sunday afternoon. Carmelo Anthony led the way with 25 points, Chris Copeland put in 22 and the Knicks canned 11 three-pointers on their way to the victory.
The win snapped a three-game losing skid for New York, its worst mark under Mike Woodson. The Knicks' victory also ended a four-game winning streak for the Hornets, a team that had made a living of battling back from double-digit deficits over the past few games.
New Orleans put a bit of a scare into the Knicks in this one, but ultimately, New York was just too much for Monty Williams' ballclub.
This was a solid win for a Knicks team that really needed one.
