The Knicks snapped a seven-game losing streak with a 118-106 defeat of the Timberwolves.
After New York took a 66-55 lead into the half, the Timberwolves roared back into the game with a 31-point third quarter. However, the Knicks responded with a 30-point fourth quarter to quell the rally.
All five Knicks starters — Carmelo Anthony, Amare’ Stoudemire, J.R. Smith, Raymond Felton and Tyson Chandler — scored in double figures. Anthony led the way with 33 points. Chandler had a double-double (15 points, 14 rebounds)
The Knicks shot almost 41-percent from beyond the arc, while the Timberwolves shot worse than 27 percent.
With the win, the Knicks pulled within six games of the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference.
It was the Knicks’ third win since Feb. 7 and the most lopsided victory since they topped Denver, 117-90.
The Knicks host the Utah Jazz on Friday at 7:30 p.m.
