Even without Carmelo Anthony the New York Knicks were able to post an impressive 112-92 road win in Miami to stay in control of the Eastern Conference.

Normally a facilitator, Raymond Felton had a season-high 27 points and seven assists to lead the Knicks to a fifth straight win, while moving to 14-4 overall.

Steve Novak made 4-of-9 3-pointers to finish with 18 points, with Tyson Chandler adding 13 points and nine rebounds as New York outboarded the Heat 46-43 – a rare occurrence for the Knicks.

LeBron James had 31 points, ten rebounds and nine assists for Miami (12-5), who lost their second in a row, and first at home this season. Dwayne Wade was held to 13 points on 3-of-13 shooting, as the Knicks have taken the first two meetings between the two teams this year.

Rasheed Wallace missed all six of his 3-point attempts but ended with 12 points and seven rebounds. Kurt Thomas has four points and seven boards in 11 minutes of work.

One night after a shoddy shooting performance that ended with a game-winning bucket, J.R. Smith struggled to find his stroke again, scoring 13 on 4-of-15 from the floor.

‘Melo was not in the lineup after receiving five stitches in the middle-finger of his non-shooting hand on Wednesday while diving in the bench after a loose ball.

The Knicks travel to Chicago next to face the Bulls on Saturday night.

The Heat host the Hornets on Saturday.
