The New York Knicks responded from a slow start with a dominating 120-81 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden.

The Kings opened the game with a 13-3 run, but it was dwarfed later in the half by New York 38-4 run, helping the Knicks to a 56-33 halftime lead.

J.R. Smith off set a poor shooting night from Carmelo Anthony to lead the team with 25 points, including seven of the Knicks’ 19 3-pointers. Steve Novak was 5-7 from beyond the arc to account for all of his 15 points.

Amar’e Stoudemire scored 21 in the 21 minutes of action, while Tyson Chandler snatched 20 rebounds for the second straight night becoming the first Knick to do so in more than a decade. Chandler and Kurt Thomas each had 11 points.

DeMarcus Cousins paced his team with 25, but it was Sacramento seventh loss in the last eight games, and dropped their season road record to 5-20.

The Knicks (30-15) have won four straight heading in a Monday night meeting with the Pistons at MSG.
