They trailed by 15 in the fourth quarter and ended up tying the game, but things might have turned out better for the Knicks had they not fallen behind by 15 points in the first place. The Knicks lost their sixth straight, 120-118, to Denver to start a four-game Western road trip. Raymond Felton had 19 points, eight rebounds and 11 assists, but he couldn't bring his team back from the dead.

Carmelo Anthony, so long rumored to be the object of the Knicks' affections, had 25 points but didn't play well down the stretch. The Knicks move on to Sacramento on Wednesday.
