NEW YORK -- New Yorks once faint, nearly unrealistic playoff hopes have become a real possibility. Jonathan Ogden Womens Jersey . The Knicks intend to seize the opportunity and run with it. "We know what we want," Carmelo Anthony said. J.R. Smith had 24 points, eight rebounds and six assists, Anthony added 23 points and 10 rebounds, and the Knicks beat the city rival Brooklyn Nets 110-81 Wednesday night to move percentage points ahead of Atlanta for the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot. The Knicks were 21-40 on March 3 after a seven-game skid and are still just 33-43. But they know that record gets wiped away if they can finish off this turnaround. "We want to get there. Thats the goal," Anthony said. "Despite this emotional season, this up-and-down season, I think it would be a big deal to get in that spot." Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 17 points a game after spraining his right ankle to help the Knicks win for the 12th time in 15 games, dominating a team that had the best record in the Eastern Conference since the new year. New York won its third straight. The Knicks made 24 of 36 shots in taking a 63-38 halftime lead in front of new president Phil Jackson, who wouldnt have much to fix if they looked like this more often. They finished at a season-high 60 per cent and outrebounded Brooklyn 41-23. "Our guys are hungry," Knicks coach Mike Woodson said. "Normally anybody that comes off the West Coast, when youve been out there for a while, that game coming back is normally a tough game, but our guys came out with energy and came out ready to play." Joe Johnson scored 16 points for the Nets, who had won three straight. A night after clinching a playoff berth by beating Houston, they were out of the game by the opening minutes of the second quarter. "It was very frustrating the way we got blown out," Johnson said. "For whatever reason, we had a few guys fighting and a few guys who wasnt fighting. If were not all on the same page, you get a lopsided score like that." In a game that both clubs need for different reasons, the Knicks were the more desperate team, taking a 2-1 lead in the season series. None of the games has been close, but both have bigger concerns than city bragging rights, anyway. The Knicks have almost no margin for error in a final seven-game stretch against playoff-bound opponents. They had no problem with the first one and will face the Nets one more time on April 15 on the second-to-last night of the season. Brooklyn is hoping for home-court advantage in the first round, but fell 2 1/2 games behind Toronto and Chicago for a spot. The Nets led 20-19 late in the first quarter, but Anthony had two baskets, Smith made a 3-pointer and found Hardaway for another at the buzzer as the Knicks scored the final 10 points for a 29-20 lead. Hardaway made another 3 to open the second and Iman Shumpert scored to make it a 15-0 run and give the Knicks a 34-20 advantage. Anthony had the first six points of an 8-0 burst that pushed it to 58-34 with 1:36 remaining in the half, and it was 63-38 at the break. The Nets were angry with the officiating, with Johnson picking up a technical foul at halftime and coach Jason Kidds assistants stepped in front of him as he tried to yell toward the refs. Brooklyn got within 14 with 2 minutes left in the third, but the Knicks, unveiling a small lineup that had Anthony as its centre, stretched their lead to 82-61 heading to the fourth. "They were the better team tonight," Kidd said. "Lose by one, lose by 100, its just a loss. We move on." Knicks guard Raymond Felton went the locker room early in the third quarter with bruised ribs and back after a hard landing while trying to grab an offensive rebound, but was able to return early in the fourth. NOTES: The Nets had won two in a row at Madison Square Garden. ... On World Autism Awareness Day, the Knicks honoured Tarrytown, N.Y., educator Virginia Campbell with this months Sweetwater Clifton "City Spirit" Award for her more than 18 years teaching and helping more than 100 autistic children. The award is named for Nat "Sweetwater" Clifton, the first African-American to play for the Knicks. ... Referee Dick Bavetta was honoured before working his 2,633rd consecutive game assignment, an ironman streak even longer than the one compiled by baseball Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. Justin Tucker Womens Jersey . Costa injured his right thigh muscle against Barcelona last Saturday and had sought treatment in Belgrade from a doctor specializing in using fluid derived from horse placenta to repair damaged cells. Iman Marshall Womens Jersey . On Sunday, head coach Patrick Roy said the teams leading scorer will skate at Mondays morning practice and the club will make a decision on his status for Game 6 at that point.Trevor Bayliss has implied Virat Kohlis critique of Englands failed bid to save the second Test is little more than mid-series mind games. After India went 1-0 up with three to play following a 246-run win in Vizag on Monday, their captain expressed his surprise that Englands batsmen had shown no intent as they instead embarked on an attempted blockathon to bat out 150-plus overs to achieve a stalemate.Englands tactics appeared to be working while captain Alastair Cook and his teenage opening partner Haseeb Hameed were sharing a defiant stand of 75 in more than 50 overs. The best of the action from day five in Visakhapatnam But once they were both gone on the fourth evening, England folded fast on the final day - bowled out for 158 shortly after lunch.England must therefore plot a route back into the series, starting in Mohali on Saturday - and from the tone of Bayliss response to Kohlis observations, it seems unlikely they will be distracted by any such noises off the field.He can say that. Hes just playing the game as well, said the Australian, who like Cook before him voiced no regrets about the collective decision to cut out the strokeplay - in theoretical pursuit of a national-record 405 to win - and stick to all-out defence instead. Kohli said Englands batsmen showed no intent during the second Test We could have been 180 [on Sunday night], or we could have been six down as well. We felt we had to have as many wickets in hand as possible [the next morning].England still had eight, despite the hammer-blow departure of Cook to the last ball of the fourth day, but no one could get set again to launch a rearguard as Ravichandran Ashwin finished with an eight-wicket match haul.Bayliss added: Yes, wed love to have had a few more runs on the board. But some [people] have criticised us in the past for losing too many wickets going for runs. Ian Ward, Nasser Hussain, Michael Atherton and Ian Botham sat down to discuss Englands 246-run second Test loss to India in Visakhapatnam The way they went about things was fine. All we asked the players to do was go out and play as well as they can in their fashiion. Lamar Jackson Ravens Jersey. Two guys at the top of the order got their heads down and showed the other guys what was possible.England cannot afford to be sidetracked by arguments over past events, of course, if they are to battle back into the series - as they did so wonderfully under Cook on their last Test tour to India, when they won 2-1.Bayliss has issued a statement of intent to repeat the dose.Were not here to make up the numbers, he said. Were here to compete and to win a Test series. Sky Sports Black Friday sale Upgrade to Sky Sports now and get 12 months half price! If they are to be successful, they must also avoid any more self-inflicted setbacks such as their first-innings collapse to 80 for five in reply to 455 in Vizag - the passage of play which put them in a perilous position, long before it came to how best to try to salvage a draw two days later.We lost four wickets in a short space of time, said Bayliss.It put us under pressure for the rest of the match, and the boys are very disappointed at losing a Test.[But] weve competed very well in both these Tests and put India under pressure as well. Our challenge is to continue doing that to give ourselves a chance of winning. Will Jos Buttler come into Englands Test side after defeat to India in the second game of their five-match series? England are expected to make at least two changes for the third Test, where a renewed emphasis on seam over spin may be in the offing for both teams - at this venue only.As for Englands batsmen, Bayliss believes they have fared as well as anyone could have expected, considering only three have previously been on a Test tour to India - and of them, Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow played just one match apiece four years ago.Weve come to India with basically only three guys who have been here before, and only one of the batters, he said. Englands problem positions Bob Willis assesses Englands selection dilemmas ahead of the third Test with India I think what weve done here in the first two matches is a feather in the cap to the young guys.Theyre learning all the time. Theyre disappointed in there, but theyre learning all the time. Theres no disgrace in the way theyve played.Even so, England are expected to drop out-of-sorts No 4 Ben Duckett in favour of a return for Jos Buttler - as a specialist batsman rather than wicketkeeper.The tourists, who flew to Chandigarh on Tuesday and will not practise on Wednesday, appear unlikely at this stage to risk Stuart Broads foot injury at the weekend - with Chris Woakes fit again after resting his knee niggle.Upgrade to Sky Sports now and get 12 months half price.
