Carmelo Anthony scored 27 points, Tyson Chandler became the first Knick since Willis Reed to grab 20 rebounds in three straight games, and the New York Knicks topped the Detroit Pistons 99-85 on Monday night for their fifth consecutive win.

The Knicks jumped out to a 26-point lead in the first half as the team hit on 10 of its 20 three-point attempts, but the Pistons made it tough in the second half, capitalizing on some mistakes and poor shooting by New York and trimming the lead to 12 in the fourth quarter.

Regardless, it never felt like the Knicks were in any danger of losing this game, even though they went four of 14 from long range in the final 24 minutes.

Jose Calderon led Detroit with 15 points.
