MELO, KNICKS RISE AS THEY DEFEAT MAGIC IN OT
Wed, 30 Mar 2011 06:33 PM EDT

There was no doubt that Carmelo Anthony was starting to panic as his much-hyped arrival hasn’t lived up to expectations. “Almost a must win” declared Anthony earlier before the game, a phrase that got him under the spotlight and added more pressure to him and the 7th-seeded New York Knicks. Basketball lines.

Several hours after putting high importance to the game, the Knicks were lucky to get away with a 113-106 over-time win over the Orlando Magic. Star forward Anthony scored 39 points, his best since joining the Knicks. His effort was outstanding and he managed to help the Knicks to end their six-game losing streak.

Amare Stoudemire had 20 points, new-comer Chauncey Billups added 17 and recent-surging star Toney Douglas finished with 16 points to help New York earn their first playoff berth since 2004.

The Knicks won for the second time in eleven games and are now 8-12 since the February trade deadline when they acquired Melo and Chauncey among others, from the Denver Nuggets. Basketball betting lines.

The team from the “Big Apple” got some help when Orlando’s All-Star center fouled out after regulation. To make it even worse, he picked up his 17th technical foul of the season, which makes him the league’s leader. Nevertheless, D-12’s performance throughout the game was impressive. Howard finished with 29 points and pulled down 18 boards for his team.

Jason Richardson made some great contribution for the Magic too, he nailed the tying 3-pointer and registered 24 points for the Magic. Turkish star Hedo Turkoglu scored 18 points, and also fouled out. The Orlando Magic were not satisfied with Monday’s officiating down the stretch.

During OT, the Magic made some bad decisions and when Howard tossed the ball to the other side of the court after receiving a whistle for his 6th foul, it all went downhill from there. After Dwight and company snapped due to some doubtful officiating, Melo, Billups and Amare managed to take over from there and got away with a much-needed victory for their playoffs aspirations.

The Magic were without point guard Jameer Nelson because of a sprained left knee, giving Gilbert Arenas his first start with Orlando but leaving the Magic of perhaps their best clutch player.

Orlando is sitting at the 4th position in the Eastern Conference standings, while the Knicks are clinging to the 7th spot. Playoffs start in late April. The “Beasts of the East” are heating up and preparing their arsenal for the postseason, so stay tuned! Basketball scores.
