Knicks reach 5-0; Magic skid at five

ORLANDO — Carmelo Anthony scored 25 and J.R. Smith and Raymond Felton each added 21 as the Knicks held off the Magic 99-89 Tuesday night.

The Knicks are 5-0 for the first time since opening the 1993-94 season 7-0 and reaching the Finals.

J.J. Redick scored 18 and Arron Afflalo added 13 for the Magic, which had 20 turnovers that led to 24 New York points. Orlando has lost five straight.

GAME highlights: The visiting Raptors beat the Pacers 74-72 despite setting franchise lows in the fourth quarter with one field goal and five points.

AROUND the league: Commissioner David Stern estimates revenue will be a record $5 billion this season, an increase of about 20 percent from the last full season in 2010-11. He also said expansion to Europe is probably at least a decade away and predicted adding several clubs there at once. … Grizzlies assistant GM Kenny Williamson, 65, died of cancer. He also worked for the Bobcats and Knicks, and his 21 years as a college assistant included FSU from 1988-94. … First-round pick Royce White is not with the Rockets and said they have been "inconsistent" in their agreement to help him cope with anxiety disorder. The team said "Royce is not available now" and that it supports him.

  1. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Thursday's Rays-Yankees game

    The Heater

    The 10 strikeouts look flashy, but RHP Chris Archer was not his sharpest Thursday. He allowed three runs on seven hits, including three straight in the two-run second and a Gary Sanchez homer in the third, and lasted only six innings, throwing 102 pitches.

  2. Rays fall to Yankees in 11 on Brett Gardner homer (w/ video)

    The Heater

    NEW YORK — The front office did its part Thursday, making two trades to bolster the roster in a push for the playoffs. But the Rays didn't follow up in a frustrating 6-5 11-inning loss to the Yankees.

    Rays reliever Andrew Kittredge stands on the mound and can only watch as the Yankees’ Brett Gardner starts to circle the bases after his walkoff home run leading off the 11th inning.
  3. Believe it! Rays are buyers, trade for reliever Dan Jennings and 1B/DH Lucas Duda

    The Heater

    NEW YORK — Dan Jennings' ability to render lefty hitters useless with a sinker that gets beaten into the ground and Lucas Duda's power to blast baseballs off and over outfield walls should make the Rays better.

    Lucas Duda
  4. Bucs' direction is decidedly up for first time in several years

    Bucs

    TAMPA — If you want to see a team give the Heisman Trophy stiff-arm to expectations, check out the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Tight end O.J. Howard, left, the Bucs’ first-round draft pick this year, was brought in to give QB Jameis Winston another big-play option.

    Tonight: at Yankees

    7:05, Yankee Stadium, New York

    TV/radio: Fox Sports Sun; 620-AM, 680-AM (Spanish)

    Tampa Bay Rays relief pitcher Austin Pruitt (50) in the dugout during the ninth inning of the game between the New York Yankees and the Tampa Bay Rays on Opening Day at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Sunday, April 2, 2017. The Tampa Bay Rays beat the New York Yankees 7-3.
