    Carmelo Anthony had 19 points, 11 rebounds and six assists, and the New York Knicks quickly jumped on an Orlando team that appeared to still be staggered by Stephen Curry, beating the Magic 108-95 on Friday night.

    A night after yielding 51 points and 10 3-pointers to Curry in a 130-114 loss to the Golden State Warriors, the Magic were barely in a game after the first 10 minutes that their coach said they needed to win.

    Kristaps Porzingis added 18 points for the Knicks, who won for only the third time in 16 games. Jose Calderon, Robin Lopez and Arron Afflalo all finished with 14.

    Nikola Vucevic scored 18 for the Magic, and Aaron Gordon had 17 points and eight rebounds.
