Suns vs. Knicks final score: Phoenix's comeback falls just short in New York

US PRESSWIRE

Trailing by 17 points at the end of the third quarter, the Suns pull within four before falling to the Knicks, 106-99.

Carmelo Anthony's 34 points and six rebounds were simply too much for the Phoenix Suns to handle as the New York Knicks won at home, 106-99, despite being outscored by 10 points in the fourth quarter.

The Knicks took a 17-point advantage into halftime, but after both teams scored 30 points in the third quarter, the Suns attempted to storm back in the final period, but fell short despite a double-double from center Marcin Gortat (18 points, 10 rebounds). Gortat was one of five Suns to score in double figures, and three of those -- Sebastian Telfair, P.J. Tucker and Jared Dudley -- did so coming off the bench.

The Suns pulled to within four points late in the fourth quarter after Shannon Brown hit a running layup, but the Knicks hit their free throws down the stretch.

Anthony, combined with Knicks point guard Raymond Felton's 23 points and center Tyson Chandler's double-double, gave the Knicks just enough to hold off the comeback.
