SALT LAKE CITY -- Momentum on defence is a powerful thing. Maurice Cheeks Jersey . Force an opponent into a dry spell and a team can seize an opportunity to win big games. Thats the message the New York Knicks have been receiving in the locker room. Judging by what they did to the Utah Jazz, it appears they are getting the message. Carmelo Anthony scored 34 points on 11-of-19 shooting, and the Knicks pulled away for a 92-83 victory on Monday night that kept them one game back of the final Eastern Conference playoff berth. Tyson Chandler added 15 points and nine rebounds, while J.R. Smith scored 13 points and Raymond Felton chipped in 12 points and six assists to help New York (32-43) finish 3-2 on its western trip. Anthony knew it would be tough for the Knicks to pull it out in a traditionally tough road environment. "Any time you play against Utah on their home court, it is always going to be a grind out there," Anthony said. "Ive been playing them for years. Coming in and out here, a lot of battles and a lot of scars. They are always going to play tough." It wasnt just Anthony willing his team to victory. The Knicks made a collective effort to clamp down on the perimeter in the second half and keep Utah from shooting its way back into the game. New York shot 47 per cent (33 of 70) from the field while holding Utah to just 39 per cent (33 of 85). "We really got into them with our perimeter play," Chandler said. "The guys did an excellent job tonight of closing off the dribble. Even when we did get beat, we would kind of stand on their hip and funnel them into a tough situation, which allowed myself, Cole (Aldrich) and some other bigs to come over and help." Gordon Hayward scored 18 points, Alec Burks added 17 off the bench and Derrick Favours chipped in 13 points and 13 rebounds for the Jazz, who lost for the 16th time in their last 18 contests. Utah controlled the glass, outrebounding New York 50-38. The Jazz had a 19-7 edge in second-chance points and a 42-36 edge in points in the paint. It didnt matter in the end because Utah went ice cold in a crucial second-half stretch where it produced a single basket in 7 1/2 minutes. "We hit that little lull where we just cant score and that is the difference in the game," Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said. "It happened again tonight and we just have to keep fighting and get better." The Knicks scored on four straight possessions during a 15-2 run in the third quarter. Chandler punctuated the spurt with a layup, giving New York a 63-55 advantage. The Knicks hit 6-of-9 shots to open the quarter. The Jazz chipped away and tied it at 67 on Burks 3-pointer over Anthony, but the Knicks turned up the defence to seize control. The Jazz then made just one basket over a 7 1/2-minute stretch spanning the third and fourth quarters as the Knicks went on a 17-2 run. Anthony drained a pair of baskets to cap the run and give New York an 84-69 lead with 9:53 left in the fourth quarter. "Hes doing a lot of the little things," New York coach Mike Woodson said. "Hes done that all season. Hes been there when we needed him and now everybody is starting to chip in. It doesnt matter who plays. Theyre really taking advantage of the minutes theyre getting." New York jumped on the Jazz quick before quickly fading in the first quarter. The Knicks hit 7-of-9 shots to open the quarter and took a 15-10 lead when Smith drained a jumper and Chandler threw down an alley-oop dunk on consecutive possessions. The Jazz hit their first four baskets from 3-point range. The third one, from Trey Burke, put Utah in front for the first time at 18-15 and the fourth, from Hayward, put the Jazz back ahead 21-19 after Anthony made a pair of baskets to help New York reclaim the lead. Burks made back-to-back baskets and then fed Favours for a layup to boost Utahs lead to 40-30. New York trimmed the lead down at the free throw line when the Jazz got into foul trouble. The Knicks made 5-of-6 free throws before Smiths fadeaway 3-pointer a second before halftime cut it to 49-48. NOTES: Tim Hardaway Jr. left the game with a sprained right ankle. The Knicks said X-rays were negative. ... New York improved to 7-10 on the season in the second game of back-to-back games. ... Favours had his 23rd double-double of the season and the third in Utahs last four games. .... Chandler fell one rebound shy of having his 11th straight game with 10 or more rebounds.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Entering free agency this off-season Orlando Magic general manager Rob Hennigan predicted only minor, not major tinkering with his roster unless there was a piece he and his staff felt like they had to have. Initially, the shedding of veterans Jameer Nelson and Arron Afflalo seemed to be an abrupt shift away from that plan and toward youth. But with the addition of Ben Gordon last week and official signing of free agent veteran shooter Channing Frye on Monday, Hennigan said he is happy with how the summer is playing out. "I think it would be a problem if we said we didnt like it," Hennigan said of the Magics current roster. "Were excited with where were at. Weve still got a lot of work to do -- were fully aware of that -- but we do think were heading in the right direction." In the 6-foot-11 Frye, that direction instantly gains an eight-year veteran and proven long-distance shooter with the ability to spread out defences -- a coveted commodity in the NBA. He sat out the 2012-13 season after being diagnosed with an enlarged heart, and went through an intense eight-month stretch that included him wearing a heart monitor and having closely monitored activity in which he was only able to do minimal exercise. But he eventually worked his way back to the court, and played all 82 games for the first time in his career last season. "When somethings taken away from you, you just take step back, and you really appreciate it," Frye said. "Its not so much a job. This is a blessing and opportunity. When or lose, Im always going to have a smile on my face, because any moment this can be taken away." Frye, who spent the last four seasons in Phoenix, said he had intterest from about 14 teams this summer. Jerryd Bayless Jersey. . In the end, getting a longer term deal and wanting to be a part of the Magics rebuilding process trumped signing a one- or two-year contract with a contender. Fryes deal is for four years and will play the 31-year-old about $32 million. "I think the Magic pretty much made themselves at the top of my list early on," he said. "They were the first people to call, and that means a lot." Hell also to play alongside and mentor his cousin, Magic forward Tobias Harris. It will allow Frye to step into the shoes of Grant Hill, whom he credits with being one of his biggest mentors. "I think in Phoenix we never get any respect," Frye said. "I dont listen to anybody about what were going to be next year or what our record might be. Because most of the time they dont know what theyre talking about...Its a challenge and Im ready to step up." Along with Fryes signing Monday, the Magic also announced a minor deal with Chicago in which they acquired the contract of forward Anthony Randolph, two future second-round draft picks (in 2015 and 2016) and cash considerations in exchange for the draft rights to Milovan Rakovic. The rights to Rakovic, who has played his entire career overseas, were originally acquired from Dallas in 2007. Orlando intends to waive Randolph. The Magic are still safely under the salary cap, but Hennigan said there may be a few minor pieces yet to add before training camp. "We always may have something up our sleeve. But I would think this probably serves as the bulk of what well be doing this summer," he said. "But I think we probably have a few other things to get done."
