had eight points and four rebounds.

Carmelo Anthony scored 28 points, Kristaps Porzingis had 19 and the host New York Knicks beat the Brooklyn Nets 10891 on Friday night to get back to .500. Arron Afflalo added 18 points for the Knicks (10-10), who dominated lowly Philadelphia and Brooklyn in their last two games after a four-game losing streak. They reclaimed city bragging rights with ease, leading by as much as 31 points. Brook Lopez scored 21 points, and Thaddeus Young had 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Nets. They had won two in a row and have a lot to fix before they host the Golden State Warriors on Sunday. Lopez beat twin brother Robin to take the opening tip, and it was soon clear that was all the Nets would be winning. The Knicks blitzed them with a season-best 42 points in the first quarter, led 65-42 at halftime and opened their first lead of 30 or more since the 2013-14 season in the third period. The Nets had allowed 91 points or fewer in three straight games, but the Knicks already surpassed that with a 9267 cushion heading to the fourth quarter. Brooklyn fell to 1-11 on the road. Former St. Louis University star Willie Reed made his debut with the Nets. He

Beal lifts Wizards • Former Chaminade star Bradley Beal scored 34 points, Ramon Sessions added 18 and the host Washington Wizards rallied to beat the Phoenix Suns 109-106 in a turnover-filled game. Otto Porter Jr. the former Georgetown star from Scott County (Mo. ) Central, added 13 points. Before the game, the Wizards said center Marcin Gortat traveled home to Poland because of a family emergency and will miss at least one other game. Clippers have key injuries • Inflamed rib cartilage will prevent perennial All-Star point guard Chris Paul from playing when the Los Angeles Clippers host the Orlando Magic on Saturday night, Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. Rivers added the Clippers probably also will be without starting shooting guard J.J. Redick, who sprained his right ankle Wednesday night.“We’re going to have to do it a little bit without two key guys, but everyone goes through injuries,” Rivers said before the Clippers’ practice Friday. “We’re not the only team. The key for us, what we haven’t done well this year, is we haven’t won games when guys have been out. I think we may have won one.
