Auburn Hills, Michigan:

Amare Stoudemire scored 22 points and Mike Bibby added 16 to lead the New York Knicks to an easy 103-80 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Saturday night.

Carmelo Anthony scored 13 points in three quarters for New York, which led 64-42 at halftime and by 29 after three. The Detroit fans had little to cheer about - except when highlights of Lions touchdowns from their playoff game in New Orleans were shown on the big screen.

Brandon Knight led the Pistons with 19 points.

Bibby has scored 27 points in his last two games after scoring seven through New York's first six.

Detroit guard Rodney Stuckey sat out with a groin injury, and the Pistons were also without forwards Austin Daye and Charlie Villanueva, who had sore ankles.
