NEW YORK, Feb. 2 (UPI) --
J.R. Smith put in seven 3-pointers en route to 25 points for the Knicks Saturday and New York used a 46-7 run to crush Sacramento 120-81.
Amare Stoudemire added 21 points, going 10-for-10 from the field, and Steve Novak converted 5-of-7 from long range for 15 points as New York was true on 19-of-43 overall from 3-point range.
The Knicks earned the victory despite getting just nine points from Carmelo Anthony, whose streak of scoring at least 20 was snapped at 31 games.
DeMarcus Cousins scored 25 points for the Kings, losers of seven of their last eight games.
