At least one NBA losing streak will end Wednesday night.
The struggling New York Knicks host the Phoenix Suns at Madison Square Garden (7:30 p.m., MSG), as both teams look to end skids.
The Knicks have lost three straight contests, including a 102-93 defeat to the Orlando Magic on Monday. Carmelo Anthony returned from ankle injury to score 33 points against the Magic and the Knicks took a two-point lead into the fourth quarter, but Ryan Anderson's hot outside shooting (30 points, including seven three-pointers) allowed Orlando to emerge with the victory.
The Suns carry a five-game losing streak into New York. Phoenix was shellacked by Chicago on Tuesday night, 117-98, despite 25 points and nine assists from Steve Nash. Marcin Gortat added 14 points and 15 rebounds in a losing fashion, but the Suns could not stop Carlos Boozer, who had 31 points before sitting out the fourth quarter.
