    NEW YORK — Carmelo Anthony had 26 points and nine rebounds, and the New York Knicks bounced back from their first loss of the season, beating the Indiana Pacers 88-76 on Sunday.

    JR Smith added 13 points and Raymond Felton had 11 for the Knicks in their only home game in a span of seven games.

    After falling 105-95 at Memphis on Friday, the Knicks (7-1) go right back on the road to start another three-game trip Tuesday in New Orleans.

    In a game that was ugly, neither team shot 40 percent, but the Knicks built a big early lead, went up by as much as 20 and were never challenged.

    Paul George scored 20 points for the Pacers, who remained inept offensively as they played without leading scorer Danny Granger.

    They hoped they had broken out with an impressive 103-point performance against Dallas on Friday, but managed only 30 first-half points.

    David West added 14 points in Indiana’s sixth straight road loss.



    Raptors 97, Magic 86

    TORONTO — DeMar DeRozan scored 20 points and Amir Johnson had 14 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter to lead Toronto over slumping Orlando.

    Andrea Bargnani had 17 points, Linas Kleiza scored 10 of his 12 points in the fourth and Jose Calderon had a season-high 18 assists for the Raptors, who had lost six of their previous seven home meetings with Orlando.

    Glen Davis led the Magic with 16 points and 12 rebounds, E’Twuan Moore scored 16 points and Arron Afflalo had 15.

    Nikola Vucevic had 12 points and six rebounds, ending his streak of three straight double-doubles.
