Carmelo Anthony scored a game-high 33 points vs. the Wolves during Wednesday's 118-106 win with five boards, five assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 43 minutes.
Anthony went off down the stretch last year and he looks poised to do it again this season. Over his previous 10 games, he averaged 32.4 points, 8.0 boards, 2.7 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.5 blocks and 3.8 triples on 47.3 percent from the field. The Knicks snapped their seven-game losing streak and could work on a winning streak as they host the struggling Jazz on Friday.
Amare Stoudemire played 31 minutes against the Wolves on Wednesday, scoring 18 points with eight boards, one assist, one steal and two blocks.

It was one of his best games in quite some time and he's played over 30 minutes in consecutive games for the first time all season. After the game, coach Mike Woodson said he likes STAT in the starting lineup, but he's a little worried about managing his minutes. Stoudemire is going to need his days off, but it's not a bad idea to pick him up for owners with some dead weight.
Tyson Chandler's inflated rebounding numbers continued on Wednesday vs. the Wolves, grabbing 14 boards with 15 points and one turnover in 35 minutes.
He grabbed 14.2 rebounds per game in his previous 10 games and has been playing 36.1 minutes per game over that span. Chandler's minutes jumped up to 33.3 per game in February after just 25.5 in January, so he looks like he's ready to roll the rest of the way.
