CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Tyson Chandler had 20 points and 17 rebounds as the New York Knicks snapped a six-game losing streak with a 111-78 rout of the Charlotte Bobcats on Tuesday night. Chandler, a former Bobcats player, shot 9 for 10 from the field as the Knicks won despite a career-low scoring output from star Carmelo Anthony. Amar'e Stoudemire chipped in with 18 points and eight rebounds while Landry Fields added 18 points and four assists for the Knicks, who won for the first time since Jan. 11. The Knicks dominated inside the paint, outrebounding the Bobcats 53-33 while handing them their fifth straight loss. Anthony missed all seven shots from the field and finished with one point. Only once in his previous 42 games with the Knicks had Anthony failed to finish in double digits. That came on March 18, 2011, when he finished with six points. His previous career low was two points when he was with the Denver Nuggets. Kemba Walker, starting at point guard in place of D.J. Augustin, led Charlotte with 22 points but struggled early on with turnovers, seemingly bothered by the Knicks' bigger guards. Gerald Henderson and Derrick Brown each scored 15 points for the struggling Bobcats. Boris Diaw, who had come up big in his previous two games against the Knicks, had just four points on 1-for-6 shooting from the field. Anthony, who came into the game shooting just 35.4 percent from the field over his past eight games, didn't score until three minutes into the third quarter when he made a free throw after a technical foul on Charlotte's Tyrus Thomas. Anthony only played 30 minutes before being removed from the game with the Knicks leading by at least 25 points for most of the fourth quarter. The Knicks jumped out to a 52-42 halftime lead behind a near-perfect first half by Chandler, who was 6 of 6 from the field with 13 points and nine rebounds and simply outplayed Bobcats center Byron Mullens. Walker was 5 of 6 from the floor for 15 points in the first half but turned the ball over four times. The 6-foot-1 Walker seemed to be bothered by the 6-foot-5 Iman Shumpert and 6-foot-7 Landry Fields. However, the Knicks failed to take advantage of very many of Charlotte's nine first half-turnovers, regularly missing easy layups. Shumpert even missed a breakaway dunk, clanging it off the back of the rim. Still, the Knicks began to pull away in the third quarter as the Bobcats shot just 6 of 24 from the field. The Knicks were a solid 9 of 10 from the field during that same span and then expanded the lead in the fourth quarter while resting their starters, including Anthony.
