Anthony scores 29, Knicks defeat Timberwolves 118-114

NEW YORK (AP) This time, Carmelo Anthony didn't have to hit the game-winning shot, but he did need help from his teammates.

Anthony scored 29 points, Derrick Rose had 24 and Kyle O'Quinn added season highs of 20 points and 13 rebounds as the New York Knicks defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves 118-114 on Friday night.

After hitting the game-winner in the Knicks' two-point win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday, Anthony saw O'Quinn and Rose carry a heavy load down the stretch.
