Carmelo Anthony touched off a four-quarter run with six straight points Wednesday that helped New York rally to a 95-91 victory over Atlanta.
The Hawks took a 78-72 lead with 8:28 to play on a 3-pointer from Kyle Korver and then went scoreless for three minutes while the Knicks were running off 15 points in a row.
New York's advantage grew to as many as 10 points in the final two minutes and the Knicks ended Atlanta's brief two-game winning streak. After managing only 10 points in the third period, New York scored 30 in the fourth.
Anthony touched off the New York run with a free throw, added a layup and then hit a 3-pointer. The Knicks took the lead for good at 80-78 on a Raymond Felton jumper with 6:24 left.
