NEW YORK, Dec. 23 (UPI) -- Carmelo Anthony struck for 33 points and hit the go-ahead basket late in the fourth quarter Sunday, helping to rally the New York Knicks over Minnesota 94-91.

The Knicks trailed much of the game, but Anthony took over down the stretch, scoring 19 of his points in the fourth quarter as the Knicks won for the second time in three games.

His 3-point play with 1:13 remaining put New York ahead to stay, while J.R. Smith provided 19 points and seven assists.

Tyson Chandler (16 points, nine rebounds) and Raymond Felton (15 points) also played big roles for New York.

Nikola Pekovic supplied 21 points and 17 rebounds for the Timberwolves, who were playing without all-star forward Kevin Love (eye injury).
