NEW YORK — Carmelo Anthony followed his 62-point game with 35 more, and the New York Knicks beat the Los Angeles Lakers 110-103 on Sunday.


Anthony finished with two points fewer than he had at halftime of his record-setting night Friday, but he scored six straight New York points down the stretch after the Lakers had cut the Knicks’ lead to two with just over 5 minutes left.


And he had plenty of help as the Knicks won their second straight following a five-game losing streak.


Raymond Felton scored 20 points, Tim Hardaway Jr. had 18 and J.R. Smith 16 for the Knicks. Tyson Chandler had 13 points and 14 rebounds.


Jodie Meeks scored 24 points for the Lakers, but he was shut out in the fourth quarter after scoring 16 in the third. Pau Gasol had 20 points and 13 rebounds as the Lakers dropped their fourth straight to finish 2-5 on their Grammy Awards road trip.


Heat 113, Spurs 101


MIAMI — Chris Bosh scored 24 points on 9 for 10 shooting, LeBron James added 18 points and the Miami Heat rolled past the San Antonio Spurs in an NBA Finals rematch from last season.


Mario Chalmers scored 16 points for Miami, which used Dwyane Wade as a reserve for the first time since Jan. 6, 2008. Wade — an All-Star starter again this season — had not played in any of Miami’s most recent four games while dealing with ongoing knee rehabilitation, and finished with eight points and five assists in 24 minutes.


Michael Beasley scored 12, Norris Cole scored 11 and Ray Allen added 10 for Miami. Bosh has made 17 of his last 18 shots from the floor.


Tim Duncan led San Antonio with 23 points.


Suns 99, Cavaliers 90


CLEVELAND — Markieff Morris scored 27 points and the Phoenix Suns rallied from an 18-point halftime deficit to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers.


The Suns turned in a dominant second half, outscoring the Cavaliers 56-29. Channing Frye finished with 16 points, including four 3-pointers after halftime, and Goran Dragic scored 15 to help Phoenix pull off the comeback on the first stop of a four-game road trip.


The Cavaliers, who led by 20 late in the second quarter, fell to 1-3 on a five-game homestand considered crucial to their chances of staying in the Eastern Conference playoff race.


Kyrie Irving scored 24 points and Luol Deng added 18 for Cleveland.


Pelicans 100, Magic 92


NEW ORLEANS — Anthony Davis had 22 points, a career-high 19 rebounds and seven blocked shots, and the New Orleans Pelicans won their second straight game.


Davis’ statistical line marked the first time since the franchise was founded as the Hornets in Charlotte in 1988 that a player on the club had that many points, rebounds and blocks in the same game.


Tyreke Evans scored 13 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter to keep struggling Orlando at bay.


Led by Arron Afflalo’s 25 points, the Magic twice got as close as three points late in the fourth quarter.


Brian Roberts had 15 points and Eric Gordon 14 for the Pelicans.


Victor Oladipo 18 points and five steals for Orlando, while Tobias Harris added 17 points and nine rebounds.
