    Carmelo Anthony had 29 points and 13 rebounds, and the New York Knicks beat the New Orleans Pelicans 95-87 on Sunday.

    Langston Galloway scored 15 points and fellow reserve Kevin Seraphin had 12 for New York, which was coming off consecutive losses to Charlotte and Cleveland. Rookie Kristaps Porzingis had 10 points on 4-of-15 shooting.

    Anthony Davis had 36 points and 11 rebounds for New Orleans, and Ryan Anderson scored 16 points.

    The Pelicans have lost three in a row and nine of 10 to begin the season. They are winless in six road games.

    Anderson made two foul shots and Jrue Holiday had a driving layup to trim New York's lead to 89-85 with 1:53 left. But Anthony made four free throws and Galloway also hit two foul shots to help the Knicks hold on.

    Seraphin, a Frenchman who shaved "PARIS" into his hair in remembrance of the terror attack in France, had 10 points, seven rebounds and no assists in six games coming into the day. He was 6 for 8 from the field in 14 minutes against New Orleans, and also contributed three rebounds and two assists.
