NEW YORK -- The New York Knicks spent $72 million to make Joakim Noah the anchor of their defense.On Monday, they sat him down and turned around a game.Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis each scored 24 points, and the Knicks rolled after a halftime lineup change and beat the short-handed Dallas Mavericks 93-77.The Knicks benched Noah, their big free-agent signing, starting guard Justin Holiday and moving Porzingis to center in a small lineup. They responded by scoring 31 points in the third quarter after managing just 36 in an ugly first half.Second half was really good. Coach made the decision to play small, Noah said. I didnt get to play, everybody wants to play, but its good that we won. We found a way. It was much-needed.Anthony scored 17 in the third quarter and 20 in the second half after shooting 1 for 6 in the first half. Porzingis finished with 11 rebounds, though coach Jeff Hornacek doesnt think his move to starting center is going to be permanent.Just because it was good in the second half doesnt mean were going to change it, Hornacek said.Harrison Barnes scored 20 points and J.J. Barea had 17 for the Mavericks, who are still without Dirk Nowitzki and Deron Williams.The remaining lineup was good enough to take a 39-36 halftime lead but got run off the floor once the Knicks returned with a different look.This is where everybody has got to be totally together, help each other out, really focus on doing the little things at a high level, Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said. I thought the first half we did that. In the second half we had breakdowns.Anthony made a 3-pointer to open the half and later had six straight points in the midst of the Knicks 19-6 run that Holiday capped with a 3-pointer that made it 55-45. New York outscored Dallas 31-12 in the period as the Mavs shot 5 for 20, and it was 67-51 headed to the fourth.Porzingis and Anthony made consecutive 3-pointers that pushed it to 82-64 midway through the period and soon both were on the bench for good.Noah, a defensive-minded center who battled injuries in his final season in Chicago, grabbed six rebounds in 16 scoreless minutes. He didnt play in the second half, while Holiday finished with 16 points.TIP-INSMavericks: Dallas had won five straight and 24 of the last 29 meetings. ... Barnes had scored 25 or more in a career-best three straight games.Knicks: The Knicks snapped a two-game losing streak. ... New York won for the first time in five games this season when scoring fewer than 100 points.DIRK WORKSNowitzki had a lengthy pregame workout on the court, but by then the Mavs had already determined that he would miss his fourth straight game with a sore right Achilles.I think hes really close. Hes feeling a lot better and we just dont want to rush anything, owner Mark Cuban said. Theres no reason to rush anything with him.TAKE TIMEDallas was twice called for technical fouls in the fourth quarter for calling timeout when it had no timeouts remaining.HELPING HANDHornacek asked Carlisle if Nowitzki would work out with Porzingis in September. They couldnt get anything scheduled but both sides hope they can eventually.Dirks a giver, he would love to see every international guy have the same opportunities hes had, Carlisle said. Its something that didnt work out because I think at the time in September Dirks travel schedule and Kristaps health situation didnt match up, but maybe sometime in the future. I know that Dirk would look forward to spending time with him and vice versa.UP NEXTMavericks: Visit Boston on Wednesday to finish four-game, coast-to-coast road trip that began at the Los Angeles Lakers. Dallas has won seven straight against the Celtics.Knicks: Host Detroit on Wednesday. The Pistons beat the Knicks 102-89 earlier this season.---This story has been corrected to show that Nowitzki has missed four straight games. Asics Gel Lyte III For Sale .

Newcastle coach Mark Jones has called out his attacking stars for their inconsistent form, demanding that they have more to give in the A-League.The Jets failed to take advantage of a 10-man Central Coast, settling for a 1-1 draw at McDonald Jones Stadium on Sunday, leaving them with just one win for the season so far.A frustrated Jones had particular messages for key duo Andrew Nabbout and Morten Nordstrand, the latter of whom the Jets manager described as our (Milos) Ninkovic.It was Nordstrands second-half equaliser that kickstarted the Jets against the Mariners but despite a glut of chances, couldnt find the match-winning goal.Hes just lacking a bit of confidence at the moment, Jones said of Nordstrand.He had an injury at the start of the year, so hes just getting game fitness. Hes getting better, but I think hes trying to make his way through the game.He holds himself (back) a little bit. He needs to give 100 per cent from the start. He holds himself then come second half, he run out the game quite well.ddddddddddddJones said Nordstrands game lifted following his goalscoring effort, his first for the season.Last 20 minutes after he scored, his touches on the ball were magnificent and he got involved in the play more. Maybe its just a confidence thing and hopefully it is, Jones said.You saw what he can do and Ive seen at training what he can do. Hes magnificent player and hes our Ninkovic, so to speak.Jones also challenged left winger Nabbout to improve his fitness, having only managed to last the full 90 minutes in one of his six appearances this season.The 23-year-old laid on a long-range through ball for Nordstrands effort but was substituted for Aleksandr Kokko in the 77th minute.Nabbout run out of legs at the end again which is a little disappointing. He needs to be able to play 90 minutes, Jones said. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
