Anthony scored four of the Knicks’ six points in the extra session, and New York allowed only four free throws while forcing the Suns to miss all seven shots.

Raymond Felton added 19 points for the Knicks (15-22), who climbed into a tie with Brooklyn for eighth place in the Eastern Conference.

Goran Dragic had 28 points and eight rebounds for the Suns, who dropped their third straight. Leandro Barbosa scored 21 in his best game since rejoining his old team on a 10-day contract.

SPURS 101, PELICANS 95

NEW ORLEANS • Tony Parker capped a 27-point outing with several clutch layups in the final minutes, and San Antonio beat reeling New Orleans for its fifth consecutive win.

Tim Duncan scored 18 points before fouling out with 6:02 to go in what turned out to be a surprisingly tense game between the Western Conference-leading Spurs and a hobbled Pelicans squad that has lost six straight since an injury to leading scorer Ryan Anderson.

Manu Ginobili added 14 points, Kawhi Leonard 13 and Marco Belinelli 12 for San Antonio.

Anthony Davis had 22 points and 11 rebounds, and gave New Orleans its last lead at 87-86 with 7:08 to play. Brian Roberts, starting at point guard for the injured Jrue Holiday, scored 19.

WIZARDS 102, BULLS 88

CHICAGO • John Wall and Nene had 19 points apiece, Trevor Ariza scored 16 and Washington snapped Chicago’s five-game win streak.

The Wizards led by 13 early in the fourth quarter and hung on after the Bulls made one last push.

Nene scored eight points in the final period and Bradley Beal came on strong down the stretch to finish with 13. He hit a jumper and 3-pointer during a nine-point run that bumped Washington’s lead to 96-82 with about 3 minutes left.

Wall scored four points during that spurt and had seven assists in the game. The Wizards had dropped five of seven.

Carlos Boozer scored 19 for Chicago and Joakim Noah grabbed 16 rebounds, but with a chance to reach .500 for the first time since November, the Bulls came up short. They also lost for the first time since trading Luol Deng to Cleveland last week, after winning three without him.

ROCKETS 104, CELTICS 92

BOSTON • Dwight Howard had 32 points and 10 rebounds, and Houston sent skidding Boston to its ninth consecutive defeat.
