Amar’e Stoudemire scored 21 points and Carmelo Anthony added 18 to help the New York Knicks (14-22) to a 102-92 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Knicks got a boost from Stoudemire, who went 8 for 10 from the field.
“Fantastic,” Woodson said of Stoudemire’s performance. “He got stronger as the game went on. He was a force and defensively he was solid. He’s playing well and we have to keep him at that level.”
After outscoring the Sixers 32-12 in the second quarter to take a 52-40 halftime lead, the Knicks came out strong after the break. They scored the first four points to open their biggest lead to that point — 10:56 left in the third quarter.
The Sixers never got closer than eight the rest of the way.
“We put a full game together tonight,” Stoudemire said. “That was a great win for us.”
