Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks ended the Heat's 17-game home winning streak, though the win came with an asterisk as Miami rested LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Mario Chalmers for the second straight game.

Anthony tied a career high with 50 points on an efficient 18-of-26 shooting night, including 7-of-10 from behind the arc, as the Knicks pulled away down the stretch for a 102-90 victory at American Airlines Arena.

New York, winners of nine in a row, got 14 points from J.R. Smith and 10 points and nine assists from Raymond Felton while also welcoming back All-Star center Tyson Chandler, who missed 10 games due to a bulging disc in his neck.

The Knicks pulled even with the Indiana Pacers for the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference behind the Heat with nine to play. They also have two games in hand on Indiana.

Chris Bosh, who drained a game-winning 3-pointer in San Antonio on Sunday, once again paced the Heat with 23 points, while Mike Millers added 18 with eight rebounds in the loss.
