(Continued)

 
The Hawks shot a season-high 60 percent from the field but had their three-game winning streak snapped when Josh Smith, burned on Anthony’s basket, missed a 3-pointer on Atlanta’s final possession.
 
Amare Stoudemire and J.R. Smith each had 18 points for the Knicks, who were 16 of 27 (59 percent) from 3-point range. Raymond Felton had 12 points and 10 assists in his second game back after a 10-game absence with a broken right pinky.
 
Jeff Teague scored 27 points for the Hawks. Smith added 20 and Al Horford had 16.
 
MAVERICKS 110, SUNS 95
DALLAS — Shawn Marion scored 18 points for Dallas in his 1,000th game, and Dirk Nowitzki also had 18 while passing Allen Iverson on the career scoring list.
 
It was the 10th straight home win for the Mavericks against the Suns, who haven’t won in Dallas since March 14, 2007.
 
Nowitzki passed Iverson for 18th on the NBA’s scoring list with a third-quarter jumper that stopped a Phoenix run, and his 3-pointer early in the fourth started a surge that put Dallas in control for good.
 
Phoenix rallied from a first-half deficit and made it interesting for a second straight night in Texas after losing at Western Conference-leading San Antonio. Goran Dragic led four players in double figures with 18 points.
 
HORNETS 91, GRIZZLIES 83
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Ryan Anderson scored 22 points for New Orleans, connecting on seven 3-pointers.
 
Anderson was 7 of 13 from the field, all of his attempts coming from outside the arc. Fellow reserve Jason Smith was 5 of 7 from the field for 16 points, and Anthony Davis was the only New Orleans starter to finish in double figures with 10 points.
 
The Hornets had dropped consecutive games.
 
Zach Randolph led Memphis with 20 points and 13 rebounds for his league-leading 28th double-double. Marc Gasol had 14 points and 11 boards, and Jerryd Bayless also scored 14. Rudy Gay had 10 points, but was 3 for 17 from the field, including a 1-for-7 performance from long range.
