Recap


Raptors 92, Knicks 88: Alan Anderson scored 26 points in a reserve role as visiting Toronto defeated New York for its fourth straight win.

Anderson connected on six 3-pointers to help overshadow a dismal night from Rudy Gay as the Raptors used a big third quarter to improve to 7-19 away from the Air Canada Centre. DeMar DeRozan added 20 points while Gay had just nine on 4-of-21 shooting.

J.R. Smith's 26 points off the bench led the Knicks, who shot 35.4 percent while making only 9 of 25 attempts from 3-point range. Raymond Felton had 16 points while Carmelo Anthony was held to 12 points and 12 rebounds.

The Knicks' defense held Toronto at bay in the first half, limiting the visitors to 33.3 percent shooting en route to a 42-37 advantage at the break. It didn't last, as Anderson torched the hosts for three 3-pointers in a 3:37 span late in the third quarter and added a layup with 1:15 remaining as Toronto went into the fourth with a 65-60 advantage.

The Knicks made it a one-possession game on several occasions in the final quarter, the last coming on Anthony's 3-pointer with 2:59 remaining. New York proceeded to miss its next five shots while Toronto stretched the lead to 86-80 on a John Lucas jumper with 54 seconds remaining.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Toronto had a season-low 14 points on 3-for-18 shooting in the first quarter. Gay missed all five of his shot attempts. ... The Raptors inserted SF Landry Fields into the starting lineup against his former team in place of Amir Johnson. Fields had four points and 10 rebounds in 23 minutes. ... Anderson finished one point shy of his career high.
