Tyson Chandler had 15 points and tied a season high with 17 rebounds, and the New York Knicks rebounded from their first loss under Mike Woodson by routing the Detroit Pistons for the third time this season, 101-79 on Saturday night.
Amare Stoudemire scored 17 points for the Knicks, who are 6-1 since Mike D'Antoni resigned. They lost 96-79 on Friday night in Toronto, but had no trouble with the Pistons for the third time in three meetings this season.
Carmelo Anthony finally got his shot to fall in the third quarter and finished with 15 points, while Jeremy Lin had 13. The bench put it away early in the fourth, allowing some banged-up Knicks to get some extra rest. Lin sat down with a sore left knee but could have returned, while Stoudemire went out with a sore lower back and the Knicks said at the time his return was questionable.
Ben Gordon scored 20 points for Detroit, which lost its fifth straight.
