Knicks roll to 11th straight win

NEW YORK (AP) -- Carmelo Anthony scored 41 points, tying a franchise record with this third straight 40-point game, and the New York Knicks beat the Milwaukee Bucks 101-83 on Friday night for their 11th straight victory.

Anthony, who had 50 points and 40 in his previous two games, equaled Bernard King's 1984-85 mark. New York matched the third-longest winning streak in franchise history.

J.R. Smith added 30 points for the Knicks, who used a huge third quarter to turn around the game after a lackluster first half on the night they honored their 1972-73 NBA championship team.

Brandon Jennings scored 25 points for the Bucks and JJ Reddick had 18.

After scoring just 36 points in the first half and trailing by nine, the Knicks poured in 42 in the third quarter, with Anthony scoring 18 and Jason Kidd ending the period with a 59-foot heave at the buzzer.

"We were a little dead in the first half," Anthony said.

Milwaukee led 57-48 after Jennings hit a jumper with 8:46 left in the third before the Knicks scored the next 16 points.

Anthony started the streak with a layup, free throw and short jumper. Smith followed with a 3-pointer and Anthony's long jumper with 6:25 to go gave New York a 58-57 lead, its first since late in the first quarter.

McIlroy 3 back at Texas Open

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Rory McIlory found the groove he was looking for when he made the last-minute decision to sign up for the Texas Open.

McIlroy matched the low round of the day with a 5-under par 67 on Friday and moved within three shots of the lead, continuing his last-minute preparations for next week's Masters.

The world's No. 2 golfer, who decided to play in the tournament late last week, had seven birdies -- including his final three holes -- and overcame a bogey on No. 9 after driving into the rough and catching his left shin on a nearby cactus.

The misstep dropped McIlroy to 1 under, but he rebounded with key putts on the final three holes for birdies and pulled well within reach of the leaders entering the weekend.

The 23-year-old two-time major winner is three shots back of leader Billy Horschel, who birdied his last two holes to post his second straight 4-under 68.
