NEW YORK, March 26 (UPI) -- Carmelo Anthony compensated for the loss of Amare Stoudemire with 28 points and 12 rebounds Monday, helping the New York Knicks beat Milwaukee 89-80.

The team announced before the game Stoudemire, a six-time all-star forward, would be out of the lineup indefinitely with a bulging disc.

New York was also without point guard Jeremy Lin, who is nursing a sore knee.

Anthony stepped up with a big game while Tyson Chandler and Baron Davis added 13 points apiece for the Knicks, who padded their lead to 2 1/2 games over the Bucks in the race for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot.

New York improved to 7-1 under interim head Coach Mike Woodson.

Mike Dunleavy scored 26 for Milwaukee, which fell for third time in four games.
