Carmelo Anthony scored 34 points as the New York Knicks won their third straight game and remained unbeaten at home with a 106-99 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Sunday.
Raymond Felton added 23 points and seven assists for the Knicks, who are 7-0 at Madison Square Garden and 12-4 overall, a half-game behind Miami for the best record in the Eastern Conference.
Tyson Chandler finished with 15 points and 13 rebounds for the Knicks, who shook off the first ejection of Rasheed Wallace's comeback -- after a mere 1:25 of playing time -- that left them short-handed. They were already without Jason Kidd for a fourth straight game.
Marcin Gortat had 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Suns.
