(AP) Carmelo Anthony had 19 points and 10 rebounds, making a pair of baskets in a finishing run after New York had blown a 25-point lead, and the Knicks beat the Milwaukee Bucks 90-83 on Wednesday night in the season opener for both teams.


Seemingly coasting to a second straight opening-night blowout, the Knicks instead were behind with under 3 minutes remaining before Tyson Chandler's follow dunk and two straight baskets by Anthony put them back ahead by five.


Chandler added another basket in the Knicks' 10-2 run to close out their sixth straight victory over the Bucks.


Raymond Felton added 18 points and Iman Shumpert had 16 for the Knicks, who shot 51 percent but committed 22 turnovers.


Gary Neal scored 16 points and fellow newcomer Caron Butler had 14 for the Bucks, who opened on the road for the 29th consecutive year.
