New York, NY (Sports Network) – It was the Amare Stoudemire show in the fourth quarter but it was Raymond Felton who made the game-winning three-pointer with 2.7 seconds remaining, as the surging New York Knicks snuck past the Toronto Raptors, 113-110, at Madison Square Garden.
Stoudemire ended with 34 points and 14 rebounds and has now tallied 30 or more points in six straight games. The star forward needs one more game like that and he will match the team record of seven straight 30-point efforts set by Willie Naulls from February 22 – March 4, 1962.
Felton finished with 28 points and 11 assists for the Knicks, who have won six in a row and 11 of 12 overall. Danilo Gallinari chipped in with 20 points and nine boards for New York, which got 14 points and six rebounds from Wilson Chandler.
Andrea Bargnani made 16-of-24 shots from the field en route to a career-high 41 points for the Raptors, who have lost three straight contests. Bargnani also grabbed seven boards and dished out six assists.
DeMar DeRozan added 19 points and five rebounds, while Jose Calderon tallied 11 points and seven assists in defeat.
