Carmelo Anthony scored 40 points as the Knicks defeated the Magic in Orlando 114-106. The Knicks have won two straight overall and four in a row over the Magic, dating back to last season.
The Knicks came within 21 seconds of beating the Celtics in Game 1. Amar’e Stoudemire, Sunday’s star on offense, says the Celtics won’t be able to stop him in Game 2.
Opening the preseason with back-to-back games was bad enough. The last thing Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers wanted was overtime.
