Looks like Phil Jackson got in just at the right time.

The newly minted New York Knicks president's second day on the job saw his team run its season-best win streak to seven games by topping the Eastern Conference-leading Indiana Pacers, 92-86, at a charged-up Madison Square Garden.

After receiving a standing ovation during pregame introductions, Jackson witnessed Carmelo Anthony put up 34 points and Amar'e Stoudemire pour in 21 in just 29 minutes to help continue the Knicks' late push for a postseason berth.

Tyson Chandler pulled down a game-high 14 rebounds for New York, now just four games back of Atlanta for the Eastern Conference's final playoff spot with 14 to play.

Lance Stephenson tallied 21 points and nine rebounds for Indiana and Roy Hibbert finished with 20 points, but All-Star Paul George was held to 17 on 4- of-17 shooting and the Pacers went 5-of-23 on 3-point attempts in having a string of four straight victories halted.
