Carmelo Anthony scoring a game-high 39 points, including the game-winning shot with 1 minute, 40 seconds remaining Sunday, to help lead the New York Knicks past the Atlanta Hawks 113-112 at the Phillips Center. Anthony scored the Knicks' last seven points, while rookie Iman Shumpert played outstanding late-game defense to help New York pull out the road victory.
Amare Stoudemire added 22 points and 12 rebounds for the Knicks (34-30), who did not play a lot of defense -- center Tyson Chandler was held out for a day of rest -- but scored enough points to improve to 34-30 with two games remaining on the regular season schedule.
Marvin Williams scored a team-high 29 points for the Hawks (38-26), who led 112-111 with 1:50 to go after Joe Johnson nailed a 3-pointer. However, the Knicks quickly got down the court and a Hawks' defensive lapse led to Anthony being wide-open for a go-ahead jumper, which gave New York a 113-112 lead.
