Burke leads Knicks past Magic to end 8-game losing streak

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) The New York Knicks got a season-high 26 points from Trey Burke and put up 120 playing without their All-Star.

Yet all they talked about was defense after breaking an eight-game losing streak with a 120-113 victory over the Orlando Magic on Thursday night.

"Our defense was pretty much the reason we won," said Burke, who came off the bench to hit 12 of 22 shots. "A lot of people look at the offensive end, but defense allowed our offense to get some good looks."
