The New York Knicks (30-42) avoided another embarrassing loss by defeating the Sacramento Kings (25-46) 107-99 on Wednesday at Sleep Train Arena.

Things got a little too close for comfort when the Kings cut what was once a 24-point lead all the way down to two in the fourth quarter. Timely shooting from Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith helped stave off the collapse.

Anthony led the Knicks with 36 points on 12-of-21 shooting. Smith made 9-of-12 threes and added 29 points of his own.

The Kings were led by their monster inside. DeMarcus Cousins went off for 32 points on 10-of-15 shooting. He also grabbed 15 rebounds and dished out eight assists.

He wasn't able to carry the Kings to victory though, as his teammates shot 42 percent from the field and grabbed 17 boards.
