The New York Knicks beat the visiting Los Angeles Lakers 106-100 on Tuesday at Madison Square Garden.

New York led by as many as 25 points in the second quarter thanks in large part to Julius Randle, who earned a double-double with 4:21 left before halftime.

However, the Lakers fought back to tie the game at 79 after a Carmelo Anthony dunk late in the third. L.A. point guard Russell Westbrook scored 18 of his game-high 31 points in that quarter en route to a triple-double.

The Knicks bench then keyed a 20-9 fourth-quarter run that featured four Immanuel Quickley three-pointers. The final one gave New York a 105-93 edge with 5:00 left in regulation.

The Knicks only scored one point in the final five minutes, but the Lakers could not take advantage as they missed all seven of their three-pointers. L.A. cut the Knick lead to as low as five down the stretch.

The Lakers played without LeBron James, who served his one-game suspension after his altercation with Detroit Pistons center Isaiah Stewart on Sunday.

L.A. listed Anthony Davis as questionable with flu-like symptoms (non-COVID related) pregame, but he suited up and finished with 20 points on 7-of-17 shooting and six rebounds in 34 minutes.

The Knicks improved to 10-8. The 9-10 Lakers have lost four of five.
