Carmelo Anthony scored 41 points, tying a franchise record with this third straight 40-point game, and the New York Knicks beat the Milwaukee Bucks 101-83 on Friday night for their 11th win in a row.
Anthony, who had 50 points and 40 in his previous two games, equaled Bernard King's 1984-85 mark.

Brandon Jennings scored 25 points for the Bucks.
