Magic Vs. Knicks Final Score: Orlando Rallies In Second Half For 102-93 Victory

The Orlando Magic picked up their fourth consecutive victory Monday afternoon when they defeated the New York Knicks, 102-93, at Madison Square Garden behind a career-best 30 points from Ryan Anderson. Orlando's fourth-year stretch forward shot 11-of-19 from the field and 7-of-13 from three-point distance in helping Orlando rally from an early first-half deficit. J.J. Redick, starting for the injured Jason Richardson, added 21 points on 8-of-12 shooting.

After intermission, Orlando shot 11-of-18 on three-pointers and 55.9 percent overall while limiting the host Knicks to 42 points and 35.9 percent shooting. After a dominant, 20-point first half, Carmelo Anthony struggled in the third and fourth quarters, missing 12 of his 17 shots and committing three turnovers.

The Magic took the lead for good with a banked-in triple by Hedo Turkoglu with 5:32 remaining. New York drew no closer than two points the rest of the way.

Dwight Howard had a rough game, fouling out and committing six turnovers in 38 minutes while scoring just eight points (3-of-6 from the field, 2-of-9 on free throws). Orlando prevailed on the strength of its defense and three-point shooting, not Howard's dominance on the interior.
