NEW ORLEANS - Tyreke Evans wasnt about to let his recent shooting slump limit his aggression. Certainly not with the reeling New York Knicks in town.Evans scored 27 points, Anthony Davis added 18, and the New Orleans Pelicans dropped the Knicks to their ninth straight loss, 104-93 on Tuesday night.I knew it was going to come, said Evans, who shot 33 per cent during his previous three games, but made 11 of 15 shots against New York. A few games (were) sluggish, but I felt good tonight just attacking the basket, staying with it and staying aggressive.Omer Asik had 16 points and 14 rebounds, and Jrue Holiday scored 13 points for New Orleans (10-10), which won its second straight to pull back to .500.Amare Stoudemire scored a season-high 26 points and blocked five shots. Carmelo Anthony had 17 points for New York, which kept the game close into the fourth quarter before fading down the stretch, as the Knicks have done often this season.We battled. I keep saying that but we did battle tonight, Stoudemire said. We let that game slip away. We had a chance to win. We should have won the game. It seems to be a broken record after every game, but weve just got to be mindful of wanting to win and playing to win. We cant play not to lose.Pablo Prigioni scored 17 for the Knicks, who fell to 4-19 with what was also their 10th straight road loss.No team has more losses than the Knicks. Only Detroit has as many. There were even some fans in Knicks jerseys wearing brown paper grocery bags over their heads, as fans of the Aints once did in the Superdome next door when the Saints were at their worst.I could never imagine that coming into this season, Anthony said. Its hard to believe it at this point.Anthony attempted only 11 shots, fewer than usual, but said he could not take more with the Pelicans routinely throwing double- and even triple-teams at him.Evans scored eight points in the last 3:05 to keep the Knicks at bay. He began his decisive surge with a layup to finish off a fast break that began when Davis swatted away J.R. Smiths driving shot in the paint.That was the last of three crowd-pleasing blocks for Davis, who also cleanly disrupted Samuel Dalemberts dunk attempt from behind the Knicks reserve centre.We just know we wanted to get this win and get back to .500, Davis said. It kind of was a must-win for us, but at the same time we just stuck with our principles and tried to play hard.New York was as close as 77-73 after Smiths 3-pointer at the end of the third quarter. Then New Orleans scored the first six points of the fourth quarter on Holidays three-point play as he was fouled on a drive by Stoudemire, and Austin Rivers 3-pointer.The Pelicans shot 50 per cent (40 of 80) and dominated the interior, handily outrebounding New York, 43-30, and outscoring the Knicks 54-40 in the paint.You just shake your head at that, Anthony said. That was the game right there, points in the paint.New York attempted only 13 free throws and made 10, while the Pelicans were 20 of 26 on free throws.TIP-INSKnicks: New York had won its previous five games in New Orleans. ... The Knicks, who play Wednesday night in San Antonio, are 0-6 on the front end of back-to-back games.Pelicans: Davis was assessed a flagrant foul in the first half for elbowing Smith near his throat in the second quarter. Smith made one of the two free throws to give New York a 43-42 lead. ... New Orleans hadnt won consecutive games since beating the Los Angeles Lakers on Nov. 12 and Minnesota on Nov. 14. ... The Pelicans are 6-2 at home.AILING ANTHONYAnthony said a left knee injury that has been bothering him much of this season isnt getting better and hes not sure yet whether itll ultimately cause him to sit out more games, perhaps as early as Wednesday night in San Antonio.At this point its a matter of evaluating it and see. Some days are better than others, Anthony said. At this point its just a matter of sitting down with the training staff and coaches and seeing whats best for everybody. ... Theyre going to have to pull me out because Im not going to make that decision.UP NEXTKnicks: Visit San Antonio on Wednesday.Pelicans: Visit Dallas on Wednesday. Glover Quin Jersey .com) - The Miami Heat stopped a four-game losing streak last time out and thats the same length slide their opponents Wednesday night, the Denver Nuggets, will try to halt when the two teams meet at the Pepsi Center. Haloti Ngata Jersey . Pospisil, whose season-ending goal is to improve his ATP Tour ranking enough to qualify for one of the 32 seedings at Januarys Australian Open, dominated Karlovic in 59 minutes. The world No. 40 never faced a break point and limited the big mans threatening ace count to a mere eight, while striking five key aces of his own. http://www.authenticnfllionslockroom.com/Youth-Akeem-Spence-Elite-Jersey/. Case in point: LeBron James vs. Ben McLemore. James was driving to the rim in the first quarter and McLemore decided to try to take the charge, which was quite admirable and predictably futile. Taylor Decker Jersey . With Bernard hurt, the second-round pick has emerged.Hill ran for 152 yards during a 27-10 win at New Orleans on Sunday, his second big game. He also ran for 154 yards against Jacksonville earlier this season. D.J. Hayden Jersey . Nat Borchers headed in the sole goal in the 54th minute, getting on the end of a Kyle Beckerman free kick. The defeat cost Sporting top spot in the Eastern Conference. Even a draw would have moved the Kansas City club above Columbus.BOSTON - The Boston Bruins went to the TD Garden for Game 7 of their playoff series against Montreal knowing that someones season would end. They just never considered it might be theirs. "Oh, its tough to swallow," defenceman Johnny Boychuk said after a 3-1 loss to the Canadiens eliminated the Bruins. "We have such a good team. It shouldnt be." With two trips to the Stanley Cup finals in three years and the NHLs best record this regular season, the Bruins have established themselves among the leagues elite. Defenceman Zdeno Chara, forward Patrice Bergeron and goalie Tuukka Rask are all up for NHL honours. But in a seven-game series against their Original Six rivals, the Bruins couldnt find the form that helped them amass 117 points in the regular season. Chara was uncharacteristically indecisive on Montreal breakaway. David Krejci and Brad Marchand key scorers in the two runs to the Cup finals did not score a goal in these playoffs. "Maybe it was a lack of focus or I didnt bear down enough, but I didnt come up big when the team needed me and (its) very frustrating," Marchand said. "Its really tough. I think we expected to go all the way this year. Its very tough; its very disappointing. Its hard to really put into words. We expected a lot more." Coach Claude Julien said the team struggled to overcome injuries on defence to defenceman Dennis Seidenberg and Adam McQuaid.dddddddddddd That left them relying on a lot of young players, including Dougie Hamilton and Torey Krug, who played well in the series, and Kevan Miller and Matt Bartkowski, who didnt. "You could see tonight that there was a lot of nervousness," Julien said. "This time of year, youve got to play your best hockey of the year. And I dont think we got to that point. I dont think we played badly but we certainly werent playing as well as we could to be a team that would move ahead." Despite the injuries, the Bruins coasted through the regular season to 54 wins, then eliminated the Detroit Red Wings in five games. After dropping the opener at home to Montreal, the Bruins came back to take a 3-2 lead in the series. But Montreals Olympic gold medal-winning goalie Carey Price shut the Bruins out 4-0 in Game 6 to force the series back to Boston for a decisive seventh game. And then he held them to a single goal in the finale. "When you know that you have a team that was so good and consistent throughout the whole season, and you have a good enough team to win more than one series," it takes a while to sink in, Chara said. "Its something that youre going to be thinking about. Ill be thinking about it for sure quite a bit."
