Johnson did assist on both Columbus goals, however, contributing to the first two goals of the season by C Ryan Johansen.

It was the second straight game in which Rangers G Henrik Lundqvist allowed six goals, the first time since December 16 and 23, 2006 that he allowed a dozen goals in back-to-back games. He did, however, allow 10 goals in 89:19 during his third and fourth games of the 2013-2014 season. Islanders C John Tavares and RW Kyle Okposo each had a goal and an assist. Okposo led the Isles with eight shot attempts (5 SOG). A day after becoming a father, Rangers LW Rick Nash scored a pair of goals, though he had the Blueshirts’ worst possession stats (8 shot attempts for, 15 against, 34.8%). More: Islanders C Mikhail Grabovski had a goal and an assist while RW Ryan Strome had a couple of assissts…In his first game for the Rangers, LW Ryan Malone had five hits and fared well in 5-on-5 shot differential (14 for, 3 against, 82.6%). DUCKS FLYING Ducks rookie C William Karlsson scored the shootout winner, one night after scoring his first two NHL goals, as Anaheim won 4-3 in a shootout at Philadelphia. Joining Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry on Anaheim’s top line, LW Matt Beleskey scored a goal, registered seven shot attempts (5 SOG) and had eight hits in 17:16 of ice time. It was the third straight game in which Beleskey has scored a goal and the last time he received more ice time in a regular-season game was March 8, 2013. Flyers C Claude Giroux had a pair of assists and tied with linemate Jakub Voracek for a game-high nine shot attempts. Voracek also had a terrific possession game (20 shot attempts for, 5 against). More: Ducks G Frederik Andersen, starting back-to-back games (after facing 12 shots against Buffalo Monday) stopped 39 of 42 shots…Flyers RW Wayne Simmonds had a strong game with a goal and an assist as well as game-best possession stats (22 for, 4 against, 84.6%). CAPITALS RALLY BEFORE LOSING IN SHOOTOUT After falling behind 4-1, the Washington Capitals forced overtime, tying the game with 4:35 remaining in the third period, before losing in a shootout. Capitals LW Alex Ovechkin led the attack with two goals, one assist and 13 shot attempts (8 SOG), playing 23:41 and starting more even-streength shifts in the defensive zone. Vlade Divac Kings Jersey. While that might reflect some level of trust from head coach Barry Trotz, it could also be questionable usage for Washington’s best offensive performer. Capitals D Mike Green contributed a goal and an assist and had a terrific possession game (22 shot attempts for, 6 against, 78.6%). Sharks C Joe Thornton had a couple assists and led Sharks forwards with 22:25 ice time. Sharks D Matt Irwin, playing his first game of the season, scored the first two goals of the game for San Jose.

Hurricanes LW Zach Boychuk had a goal and an assist, as did C Riley Nash, who played a career-high 21:20, and LW Chris Terry. This is the trio that led the depleted Carolina attack. Sabres C Tyler Ennis was dominated (3 shot attempts for, 21 against, 12.5%) in the possession game…Linemates LW Matt Moulson (4 for, 22 against, 15.4%) and RW Drew Stafford (4 for, 21 against, 15.7%) weren’t much better. More: Hurricanes D Andrej Sekera left the game with an upper body injury after slamming into the end boards…As if the Hurricanes needed another significant injury… For the second straight game, Sabres D Josh Gorges had a team-leading eight shot attempts, but had six blocked. CAMMALLERI LEADS DEVILS Devils LW Mike Cammalleri scored the game-winning goal and assisted on another in New Jersey’s 2-1 win at Tampa Bay. One night after a dominating display against Montreal, Tampa Bay’s Steven Stamkos was locked down by the Devils, finding it difficult to create any chances when matched against New Jersey’s top line of Cammalleri, C Travis Zajac and RW Jaromir Jagr, managing two shot attempts for and 10 against when Zajac and Jagr were on the ice at even strength. New Jersey had four players with more shot attempts than Cammalleri’s four, and all four were defencemen – Damon Severson (6), Marek Zidlicky (6), Eric Gelinas (5) and Bryce Salvador (5). Severson had the best possession stats (13 shot attempts for, 7 against, 65.0%) in the game for New Jersey.

Brodie and Mark Giordano each had a goal and an assist as Calgary took a 3-2 shootout decision in Nashville. Through the first four games of the season, there may not be a defence pair more valuable to their team than Giordano and Brodie, who play the hard minutes and still have outstanding relative possession numbers.

Flames rookie LW Johnny Gaudreau didn’t register a shot on goal for the third time in four games and had Calgary’s worst possession results (4 shot attempts for, 15 against, 21.1%).

Kings rookie LW Tanner Pearson had two goals and an assist to lead the way. His linemates, RW Tyler Toffoli and C Jeff Carter both had a goal and an assist. That trio has scored nine of the Kings’ 12 goals this season. With Marian Gaborik out of the lineup, Mike Richards joined Anze Kopitar and Justin Williams on what is, ostensibly, the Kings’ No. 1 line. Edmonton was missing C Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and RW Jordan Eberle, leaving LW Taylor Hall to play with C Mark Arcobello and RW Teddy Purcell on the top line. More: Oilers G Viktor Fasth left the game after allowing three goals on 11 shots on goal…Oilers D Jeff Petry was a healthy scratch and is rumoured to be on the trade block.

He was part of San Franciscos World Series championship teams in 2010 and 2012. In 2003 and 04, Mota topped National League relievers in innings pitched.

McIlroy then crushed the American 5 and 4 in a singles match at the Ryder Cup.Would the new year bring new luck for Fowler in his burgeoning competition with the worlds best player? Not quite.The friends — separated in age by six months — were grouped together for the opening two rounds of the Abu Dhabi Championship, but Fowler couldnt capitalize on a fast start that put him three shots clear of McIlroy after 10 holes on Thursday.The pair, chatting away for much of their first rounds, traded birdie putts in a high-quality back nine but a strong finish from McIlroy — and Fowlers bogey at the last — saw them post 5-under 67s.I cant get rid of him, the 10th-ranked Fowler said with a smile as he looked across to McIlroy in a joint interview just off the 18th hole.Obviously being able to go back and forth and play against each other, its good fun, Fowler added. We got to see quite a bit of that last year and hopefully theres a lot more to come this year. Its going to be a long career, battling each other.Fowler conceded on the eve of the tournament that McIlroy — the younger of the pair but on tour for two years longer — currently has the edge, chiefly because of his better ball striking and his length and consistency off the tee. Yet, the 26-year-old American beliieves his putting is stronger and that was the case on Thursday. Cheap Air Max 95 Wholesale Uk. During a hot streak from No. 15 to No. 7 (they started at No. 10), Fowler made six birdie putts ranging from 10 feet to 35 feet and was assured with his par putts from closer in, too. McIlroy said he was inspired by Fowlers brilliance on the greens as he birdied five of his last seven holes.I just needed to hang on his coattails, McIlroy said. He was kicking me on today, for sure. I was trying to keep up with him and didnt want to let him get too far ahead.Golf is always looking for big rivalries and this McIlroy-Fowler one could endure. They are good friends, too, with Fowler having pledged to play in this years Irish Open at Royal County Down that is being hosted by McIlroys foundation.Indeed, Europe could be seeing more of Fowler, who is looking to become more of a global player. Fellow American Patrick Reed announced on Twitter last month that he had become a member of the European Tour and Fowler is hinting he could follow suit.Definitely moving forward, that could be a possibility with the amount I could play in the future on the European Tour schedule, said Fowler, who is planning to play in the Scottish Open — the warmup for the British Open — again this summer.Thats for the future. As for 2015, Fowler is simply looking to make inroads into McIlroys dominance — and capture a first major title after top-five placings in the four biggest tournaments in golf last year.I guess Im not off to the hottest of starts for my career, with only two worldwide wins, one on the PGA Tour, Fowler said. Id like to start adding to that and make myself a little bit more of a prominent player. ' ' '

Everton Preview West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has been around the game long enough to not get too high when things are going well and not get too low when they arent.GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Minnesota Wild were reeling. The Phoenix Coyotes were rolling. Then the teams met Saturday night and everything turned around. Zach Parise scored two of Minnesotas three third-period goals and the Wild rallied to beat the Coyotes 3-1 on Saturday night in a game with important playoff implications. "We need to use this as a game we can kind of springboard something off of," Minnesota coach Mike Yeo said. "Weve had enough games where there have been some bad feelings afterward. Lets use this as one that hopefully we can build something off of." Phoenix nursed a 1-0 lead through two periods on Mikkel Boedkers early power-play goal, but the Coyotes went 24 minutes, 28 seconds without a shot. After giving up five goals in each of its previous two games, Minnesotas defence was outstanding with Ilya Bryzgalov in net. Parise tied it from the top of the circle off a faceoff 8:03 into the final period, and then came Jared Spurgeons slap shot from the top of the right circle with 7:03 to play. Parise added an empty-net goal in the final minute. The Coyotes would have moved ahead of Minnesota into seventh with a victory." "We cant let them come out in the third and let them score two and an empty-net goal," Boedker said. "Thats not how we do it around here, and obviously this was a good opportunity for us to jump up to seventh, but thats the way it goes." The Wild pulled three points ahead of Phoenix for the No. 7 spot in the Western Conference. The Coyotes are just a point ahead of Dallas for the No. 8 spot. The Stars won at St. Louis 4-2 Saturday. "Its going to be like that," Phoenix coach Dave Tippett said. "It is why you cant get too high right now and you cant get too low. ... Its like a playoff series. You forget the one you just played and move on whether you won or lost." Minnesotas win also clinched a playoff berth for the Chicago Blackhhawks, the defending Stanley Cup champions. Discount Nike Shoes From China. The Wild won for only the second time in six games and fourth time in 12 games. Phoenix, just back from a three-game trip east, lost for just the third time in eight games. Bryzgalov, 3-0-2 as a starter since being acquired by the Wild in a trade deadline deal from Edmonton, had 21 saves for Minnesota. "A lot of this goes to Bryz. Its 1-0 and he makes and unbelievable glove save in the second period and keeps it at 1-0," Yeo said. "Thats an important one." Thomas Greiss had 27 for Phoenix, without their usual goalie Mike Smith due to injury. Just 2:28 into the game, Minnesota was penalized for too many men on the ice. Forty-eight seconds later, Shane Doans close-range shot deflected off Boedkers leg into the net, the power-play goal giving Phoenix a quick 1-0 lead. It was Boedkers team-high eighth first-period goal of the season and his 19th overall. Each team also killed a penalty in the second period. The Coyotes didnt get a shot from the time Doan missed with 7:49 to play in the second period until Radim Vrbadas with 1:56 left in the game. Minnesota finally tied it off a face off on a shot by Parise from the top of the circle and it was 1-1 with 11:57 to play. It was a set play, Parise said. "Weve tried that before," he said. "Its just never worked." Spurgeons powerful slap shot sailed past Greiss high into the net to put the Wild ahead. Doan disputed stats on the long span without a Phoenix shot, blaming it on the scorer. "It wasnt that long between shots," Doan said. "The guy just doesnt keep track very well." The Wild had three penalty kills after the Coyotes power play goal. Notes: The Wild won the season series 2-1 and would have the tiebreaker. ... The Coyotes are 13-5-0 when Boedker scores a goal. ... Minnesota didnt have a power play until there was 5:17 left in the second period. ' ' '

Its been over two weeks since the Toronto Maple Leafs last picked up a point, dropping the club from contender in the Atlantic Division to the outside of the current wild card race. Chris Paul Jersey . With their chances at a second straight playoff berth quickly disappearing, the Leafs look to snap a six-game losing streak on Friday night when they visit the Philadelphia Flyers. You can listen to the game live tonight on TSN Radio 1050 starting at 7pm et/4pm pt. The Maple Leafs held a three-point edge for second place in their division following a victory over the Los Angeles Kings on March 13, but have failed to notch a victory since. The clubs current 0-6-0 drought has knocked it out of the playoff picture as Toronto is one of four clubs tied for the two wild card spots with 80 points. However, Toronto has the fewest games remaining on its schedule with just eight, while the Washington Capitals and Detroit Red Wings have nine games remaining. Detroit is the current occupier of one of the playoff spots, along with the Columbus Blue Jackets, who have 10 games left to play and host the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight. The Caps and Red Wings are idle. Toronto, of course, snapped a franchise-worst seven-year playoff drought last season. The first five games of the Maple Leafs losing streak came without No. 1 goaltender Jonathan Bernier, sidelined with a groin injury. He returned to action on Tuesday against the NHL-leading St. Louis Blues and made 44 saves, but the Leafs lost a 5-3 decision. Carl Gunnarsson and James van Riemsdyk scored third-period goals to pull Toronto to within one before St. Louis iced the game with an empty-net goal. Joffrey Lupul also scored. "The whole year weve thought we were a playoff team, and we still believe that now," said Lupul. "Realistically were still right there with these other teams." The Maple Leafs now try to avoid losing seven in a row for the first time since an 0-6-2 slide from Oct. 28-Nov. 13, 2010 and have a chance to sweep their season set from the Flyers. Toronto notched a 3-1 victory in Philly on Oct. 2 before recording a 4-3 overtime victory at home on March 8. The Leafs have won four of their last five versus the Flyers overall and two in a row in Philly, where they have still lost eight of their past 12. Bernier is 2-1-0 with a 3.86 goals against average in three meetings with the Flyers, who try to avoid a third straight loss overall tonight. Philadelphia won five straight to grab hold of second place in the Metropolitan Division, but has since lost games to the Los Angeles Kings and New York Rangers to fall into third. A 3-1 setback to New York on Wednesday moved the Flyers three points behind the Rangers for second place, but Philadelphia does have two games in hand and New York is visiting the Calgary Flames tonight. The Flyers also are three points ahead of the Blue Jackets and Capitals for the third and final automatic playoff berth out of the Metropolitan Division. Philadelphia failed to solve New York netminder Henrik Lundqvist on Wednesday until Jakub Voracek scored with 1:53 to play. It was Voraceks 100th career goal as he tallied for a third straight game. Steve Mason made 26 saves as the Flyers dropped their eighth straight game at Madison Square Garden. "I think we didnt play our game. Its like we didnt have any energy," said Flyers forward Claude Giroux, who is tied for fourth in the NHL with 75 points after notching an assist. The Flyers practiced today with veteran forward Vincent Lecavalier skating on their fourth line.  Lecavalier has just six points through 12 games in the month of march. Mason is 2-3-1 with a 3.96 GAA in six career meetings with the Leafs. JaMychal Green Clippers Jersey . Meanwhile, the Jets extended their winning streak to four and remain perfect under Paul Maurice.

"Maybe they dont fear us as before," Pique said on Monday, "because in the last two years we didnt win the Champions League.MIAMI -- Nick Martinez enjoyed his homecoming. And, after an anxious ninth inning, his friends and family got to celebrate a win. Martinez allowed two runs and struck out a career-high seven in six innings of work, Alex Rios drove in two runs and the Texas Rangers survived Miamis last-inning rally to beat the Marlins 5-4 on Wednesday afternoon. Marcell Ozuna and Jarrod Saltalamacchia homered in the ninth for Miami, but the Rangers held on for a split of the quick two-game series. "It was great," said Martinez, who had about 100 family and friends in the stands. "It was very special. I got to pitch where it all started against a team I grew up watching. I thought that was pretty cool and even better than we came out on top." Martinez (3-9) allowed six hits and threw 62 of 96 pitches for strikes. He was born in nearby Hialeah and pitched at Belen Jesuit Prep, about 12 miles from Marlins Park. Leonys Martin had three hits for Texas, which grabbed a 5-0 lead after two innings. And after giving up the two solo homers, Neftali Feliz got his fifth save in six tries, striking out Donovan Solano to end the game with the tying run on base. Feliz closed it out moments after manager Ron Washington visited the mound and nearly pulled him. "He said, Give me one more hitter and he said it like he meant it," Washington said. "So I gave him one more hitter." Marlins starter Nathan Eovaldi (6-8) gave up nine hits and five runs, four earned, in five innings. Martinez had a 3-0 lead before taking the mound in his home city for the first time. Texas -- which had been held to three runs or less in 14 of its last 18 games entering Wednesday -- strung together four straight two-out hits in the opening inning. J.P. Arencibias double brought Rios home with the first run, and Adrian Beltre came around when Marlins shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria dropped the relay. Martins single made it 3-0, and Rios second-inning double -- on a popup that dropped in right -- pushed tthe lead to 5-0. Kawhi Leonard Jersey. "I was leaving the fastball up in the zone, couldnt get that slider to have that good bite to it," Eovaldi said. "Its tough for us to come back from 5-0 after two innings but we were right there, knocking on the door at the end." Martinez gave up an RBI double to Ozuna in the fourth, then let Ozuna score Miamis second run on a wild pitch. Otherwise, he largely escaped trouble. Ozuna and Christian Yelich each had three hits for Miami. "Too many runs early," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "Its a day game, 12:40 start, weve got to come out of the chute and put up some zeroes, give our offence a chance to get going. To give up five runs in two innings, that cant happen." TRAINERS ROOM Rangers: In his fifth rehab outing, LHP Derek Holland (microfracture surgery on left knee) gave up seven hits and two earned runs in five-plus innings for Triple-A Round Rock against Tacoma on Tuesday night, earning the win. The Rangers still lead big league teams with 14 players on the DL. Marlins: The Marlins hope to get reliever Dan Jennings back in the coming weeks, and the bullpen will get a boost in the interim. LHP Brad Hand starts Sunday, meaning RHP Brad Penny is eligible for relief work. UP NEXT Rangers: Texas is off Thursday. RHP Colby Lewis (8-10, 5.52) gets the ball for the Rangers on Friday night when they open a weekend homestand against Kansas City and Royals right-hander Yordano Ventura (9-9, 3.48). Itll be the first meeting between the clubs in 2014. Marlins: Following a day off Thursday, the Marlins open a nine-game road trip when RHP Henderson Alvarez (9-5, 2.43) starts Friday at Colorado. LHP Franklin Morales (5-6, 5.04) is the scheduled starter for the Rockies. HOME LETDOWN The Marlins three-game home winning streak was snapped. Miami hasnt won four straight at home since May 4-7. SIZZLING MARTIN Martin is batting .500 (15-30) in his last eight games for Texas, including five multi-hit games. ' ' '
SAN ANTONIO -- The previous time the Spurs and Golden State Warriors squared off, it was all about sharp shooting from both teams. Wholesale NFL Jerseys China . That was in the second round of the Western Conference playoffs last season, which San Antonio won in six games. On Friday night, defence took over, particularly in the final 2:23, when the two teams were a combined 0 for 8 from the field. Tony Parker provided a late surge for the second consecutive game by scoring 18 points, including the last seven for the Spurs as they held off the Warriors 76-74. "Again, Tony made some huge buckets to keep the lead when we were dry," Spurs guard Manu Ginobili said. Parker, who scored 15 of the Spurs final 16 points in a victory over Phoenix two nights earlier, left the AT&T Center immediately after the win and was not available to the media. Golden State star guard Stephan Curry did not play after bruising his left ankle Wednesday night against Minnesota. Minus him, the Spurs won their 30th straight regular-season home game against the Warriors. But they still had a chance to end the streak after Parker missed two free throws with 16.4 seconds remaining. Andre Iguodala drove to the basket and tried a layup that rolled off the rim at the buzzer. "I got a decent shot off," Iguodala said. "Tim (Duncan) did a good job of making me alter the shot a little bit." After Golden States David Lee hit two free throws with 2:23 left, both teams failed to find the basket. "Were two teams that lay a solid foundation of solid defensive principles," Warriors coach Mark Jackson said. "It was a grind out there. It was tough to score on both sides." Golden State entered the night ranked second in the league in field goal percentage at slightly over 50 per cent. But a stout San Antonio defence held the Warriors to 40 per cent. "Overall, theyre a hard team to guard, so I thought the defence was some of the better defence weve played this year," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "(We) did a lot of one-on-one on the post and one-on-one on the perimeter. We certainly couldnt put it in the basket, so the defence was really important for us tonight." Kawhi Leonard added 13 points for the Spurs, who improved to a conference-best 5-1. Toney Douglas came off the bench to lead Golden State with 20 points. Lee added 13 and Clay Thompson had 11. The Spurs shot 39.2 per cent from the field, marking the fifth time in six games this season that Golden State held its opponent to under 40 per cent from the field. San Antonio jumped out to an early double-digit lead, but struggled in the second quarter, hitting just two field goals in the first seven minutes. Still, the Spurs managed to maintain the lead by plugging their big men in the middle and forcing Golden State to take outside jumpers. NOTES: With the win, Duncan and Parker are now No. 4 all-time in league history for victories by teammates with 597. ... Harrison Barnes, who missed the Warriors first four games of the season with left toe inflammation, made his first start of the season, filling in for Curry. Barnes scored five points. ... Spurs F Matt Bonner missed his second straight game with tightness in his left calf. ...

BOSTON -- John Lackey pitched seven strong innings, Jackie Bradley Jr. Rick Mahorn Jersey . singled in two runs and the Boston Red Sox snapped a three-game losing streak with a 5-1 win over the Texas Rangers on Monday night. The Red Sox never lost more than three straight last year when they won the World Series. They avoided dropping their first four home games for the first time since 1984. Lackey (2-0) allowed an unearned run and five hits in seven innings five days after giving up two runs over six innings in a 6-2 win at Baltimore. Chris Capuano pitched the eighth and Koji Uehara escaped a second-and-third jam in the ninth in a non-save situation.

LOUIS -- When Braves second baseman Tyler Pastornicky backpedaled into shallow right field to catch the popup and Jason Heyward didnt arrive fast enough to take charge, Kolten Wong got the green light.CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bulls were open all over the floor, so Joakim Noah kept collecting assists. Jumpers for Jimmy Butler and Kirk Hinrich. A dunk for Taj Gibson, another jumper for Butler, and on and on it went. The All-Star centre put on quite a show. Noah had 14 assists in his fifth career triple-double, leading the streaking Bulls to a 109-90 victory over the New York Knicks on Sunday. "Its really all my teammates," he said. "I think were getting better every game." Noah also had 13 points and 12 rebounds in his second triple-double of the season, but it was his deft passing that really stood out. It was the most assists by an NBA centre since at least the 1985-86 season and a franchise record for his position. "What can you say? He is playing MVP basketball," Gibson said. "He is doing everything in all facets of the game." Chicago had seven players score in double figures and set a franchise record by committing only three turnovers in its ninth win in the last 10 games. The Bulls also reached 100 points for the fourth consecutive game for the first time since Oct. 30-Nov. 5, 2010. D.J. Augustin had 21 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter as Chicago (33-26) improved to 21-8 since Jan. 1 and a season-high seven games above .500 overall. Butler scored 19 points and Carlos Boozer had 14. "Weve hit a stretch where we have guys that are healthy playing that I think they know what to expect from each other," coach Tom Thibodeau said. "I think theyre playing to their strengths." While the Bulls are galloping through the weak Eastern Conference, the Knicks are floundering. Carmelo Anthony scored 21 points and Tyson Chandler had 22 rebounds, but New York dropped its sixth consecutive game. The Knicks (21-39) are just 6-16 since Jan. 14. "Its embarrassing," Anthony said. "Its frustrating and its embarrassing." Swingman Iman Shumpert had three points on 1-for-6 shooting in his return to the lineup. He missed five games after he sprained the medial collateral ligament in his left knee during New Yorks 98-91 victory over New Orleans on Feb. 19. Noah rolled his right ankle at the beginning of the second half and got it re-taped before comingg back in at the start of the fourth quarter. Bill Laimbeer Pistons Jersey. He heard more chants of "M-V-P! M-V-P!" when he went 1 for 2 at the line to make it 89-70 with 9:26 to go. There were more loud cheers when Jimmer Fredette checked in with 3:08 left after joining the Bulls earlier in the day. The sharp-shooting guard drilled a long jumper on his first shot, making it 107-83 with 2:16 remaining. Fredette, the 10th overall pick in the 2011 draft, was bought out by Sacramento on Thursday and cleared waivers on Saturday. His contract with the Bulls covers the rest of the season. "It was great. I mean, these guys did a great job the whole game and got a big lead and I was able to get into the game," Fredette said. Led by Noah, the Bulls jumped all over the Knicks right at the start. He capped Chicagos opening 16-1 run with a driving layup and rebound tip-in. It just kept getting worse for New York, which shot 32 per cent from the field in the first quarter. Butler scored 10 points and also found Gibson for a big dunk as Chicago jumped to a 37-16 lead, setting a season high for points for the opening period. "They came out with more energy than we did, took advantage of us," Chandler said. "On the defensive end, backdoor cuts that pretty much changed the game." The lead grew to 25 early in the second before Anthony and Amare Stoudemire started to heat up. Anthony made a nice pass to Stoudemire for a reverse layup that got New York within nine with 3:33 to go. Anthony drove the baseline for a smooth jam, but Noah found Butler for a jumper that lifted Chicago to a 59-48 halftime lead. Noah had 11 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds at the break. "You cant come on the road and start like that and expect to win," Knicks coach Mike Woodson said. NOTES: Anthony has said he plans to become a free agent this summer, and there was at least one sign calling on him to come to Chicago. "I cant see next year," Anthony said. "I cant even see tomorrow at this point." ... Stoudemire and Tim Hardaway Jr. had 14 points apiece for New York. ... The Bulls improved to 14-2 this season when they score 100 or more points. ... The Bulls and Knicks have one more scheduled meeting, on April 13 in New York. ' ' '
