Ryan Anderson made seven three-pointers and scored 31 points, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame the loss of Anthony Davis to a broken left hand to beat the Knicks, 103-99, Sunday night in New York.
Tyreke Evans had 24 points, including 10 in the fourth quarter, as the Pelicans sent the reeling Knicks to their ninth consecutive loss overall and seventh in a row at home. New York is 3-13, tied with Milwaukee for the worst record in the Eastern Conference.
Davis had seven points and four rebounds in the first quarter before leaving with what the Pelicans said was a non-displaced fracture in his left hand. The team said a timetable for his return had not been determined.
Carmelo Anthony finished with 23 points and rookie Tim Hardaway Jr. had 21 for the Knicks, who haven't won at home since beating Milwaukee on Oct. 30 in their season opener.
at Oklahoma City 113, Minnesota 103: Kevin Durant had a triple-double with 32 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists, and the Thunder, which has made a habit of fourth-quarter rallies, again surged in the final period to win its seventh in a row and improve to 9-0 at home. Durant also had four steals and four blocks, making him, according to Elias Sports Bureau, the first NBA player to record 30 or more points, 10 or more rebounds, 12 or more assists, four or more steals and four or more blocks in one game since blocks and steals became official NBA statistics during the 1973-74 season.
at Miami 99, Charlotte 98: Chris Bosh scored 13 straight points in the final minutes, including a trio of three-pointers in a 79-second span to cap a late rally, and the Heat extended its winning streak to 10 games and beat the Bobcats for the 14th straight time.

at Detroit 115, Philadelphia 100: Andre Drummond set career highs with 31 points, 19 rebounds and six steals. He is the first player to have at least that many points, rebounds and steals in a game since Hakeem Olajuwon in 1990.
