NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Carmelo Anthony capped a 42-point performance with three clutch baskets in the last two minutes, and the New York Knicks snapped a three-game skid with a 98-91 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night.
    
A night after losing at Memphis, New York blew a 13-point, fourth-quarter lead before Anthony, coming off a 30-point outing in the All-Star game in the same arena Sunday, took over by hitting a pair of pull-up jumpers from the left side of the lane. He hit the first of them over Pelicans All-Star Anthony Davis, who blocked five shots in the game.
    
J.R. Smith had 19 points and Tim Hardaway Jr. added 16 for New York. Tyson Chandler had 11 rebounds and a pair of blocks.
    
Eric Gordon scored 28 for the Pelicans, but was shut out in the fourth quarter. Davis had 14 points and 10 rebounds.
