ORLANDO, Fla. Demarcus Walker Jersey . -- The New York Knicks have been looking for any kind of continuity they can find as injuries and losses have continued to pile up this season. The injury bug isnt done biting them just yet, but they remained healthy just long enough Monday night to get a much-needed victory. Carmelo Anthony had 19 points before leaving the game with a sprained left ankle in the third quarter, but the Knicks were able to stave off a fierce charge and hang on for 103-98 victory over the Orlando Magic. New York led by as many as 25 points before having its lead cut all the way to a point in the fourth quarter. Beno Udrih hit six straight free-throws in the final 26 seconds to help preserve the win, which was the Knicks eighth straight over the Magic. It also was a big win for embattled Knicks coach Mike Woodson, whose job security has been called into question in recent weeks. "All teams make runs and they made a helluva run, but I applaud our team because we withstood the run," Woodson said. "We made plays. It was a total team effort. After losing two starters, I applaud our guys." Along with losing Anthony, the Knicks also saw point guard Raymond Felton go down late in the fourth quarter with a groin injury. He was just making his return Monday after a six-game absence with a strained left hamstring. Woodson said the status of both players will be evaluated Tuesday. New York plays Oklahoma City on Christmas Day. J.R. Smith added 18 points and 10 rebounds. Felton had 13 points and four assists before his injury. Afterward Smith said his teams injury issues are bothersome as they try to get back their season back on track. "Im concerned (about Melo), but Im not as worried about him as Im worried about Ray, the way he came back and then to go down again. Its tough," Smith said. "Hes our point guard, for sure." Arron Afflalo led Orlando with 26 points. Glen Davis added 20 and Jameer Nelson 17. The Magic have lost three straight and 11 of their last 13. Orlando coach Jacque Vaughn applauded his teams resolve in the second half. "We responded to their hit in our face," Vaughn said. "It took us a whole half, but then we responded by coming out and realizing that its OK to hit first. I think we were the aggressors in the second half." The Knicks seemed to be cruising in the third quarter with a 25-point lead before Anthony went down with about seven minutes left in the quarter. It helped stretch a Magic 27-8 run that cut New Yorks lead to just 76-70. The Knicks carried an 84-76 edge into the fourth, but the Magic kept attacking as New York began to settle for jump shots. A tip-in by Jason Maxiell cut it all the way down to a point with 8:28 to play in the game, prompting Woodson to call a timeout. New York responded, and got a mini-spurt that pushed its lead back to 89-83. It was short-lived, as the Magic got within 91-89 on a jumper by Nelson. Orlando had a chance to tie it on a fast break following a Knicks miss, but Tobias Harris layup attempt was blocked by Smith. Felton got tangled up with another player during the play and limped off the floor. The Knicks steadied, and got a steal and layup by Iman Shumpert that gave them a 97-91 cushion. "They tightened up once they seen the lead completely evaporate," Afflalo said. "They did a good job of once we cut it to one or two, not allowing us to get over the hump." Felton made his presence felt in the first few minutes of action with a pair of jumpers and assist on a Tyson Chandler. It helped provided a jolt for the Knicks, who shot 52 per cent in the first half. A big half it turned out the Knicks would need down the stretch. "(Orlando) played very good in that third quarter," Knicks forward Andrea Bargnani said. "Youve got to give them credit, they made some very tough shots so they came back. We made the right plus at the end. "The team was upset when Carmelo went out, but we got over the shock." Notes: The Magic are now 0-14 this season when an opponent scores 100 or more points. ... Anthony picked up his third technical foul of the season for arguing with referee Ed Malloy in the third quarter. Riley Dixon Jersey . Hes coming back to fulfil them.

Watch all the action live on TSN1, TSN3, TSN4, TSN5 and TSN GO at 8pm et/5pm pt with pre-game coverage beginning at 7pm et/4pm pt. You can also hear the game live on the TSN Radio Networks. Canada is looking to end a five-year gold medal drought that dates back to 2010, when a loss to the United States in the final snapped a previous run of five straight titles from 2005-2009. There is unfinished business for many returning players after a fourth-place finish last year. A 2-1 loss to Russia in the bronze medal game sent Canada to its second straight tournament without a medal - only the second time in World Junior history that Canada has been held without a medal in consecutive years (1979-1981) Canada has seven returning players with forwards Curtis Lazar, Connor McDavid, Sam Reinhart, Nicolas Petan, Frederik Gauthier, defenceman Josh Morrissey and goaltender Zach Fucale. I was disappointed with how we played last year and the result we got, Lazar told the Canadian Press on Monday, reminiscing on the loss to Finland in last years semis and the defeat to Russia in the bronze-medal game. Second chances dont come around too often. Were fortunate to have this chance. Lazar, on loan from the Ottawa Senators, was named team captain on Monday with Buffalo Sabres prospect Sam Reinhart and potential No. 1 pick in the 2015 NHL draft Conner McDavid assigned as alternates. I want it to be loud. Thats the biggest thing, said Lazar. Regardless if were out there blocking a shot, hitting a guy or scoring a goal, we want our fans to support us and cheer us on. Its going to be huge, but in saying that we need to be able to manage the crowd and get them behind us right off the start. If we can get that momentum rolling through the tournament it will be really beneficial to us. World Juniors in Canada. Theyre here to support us and its up to us to put on a show. Fucale will start in net for Canada opposite Dennis Godla for Slovakia. Emmanuel Sanders Jersey. Fucale was named the starter during Thursdays practice, though head coach Benoit Grouxl would not name the starter for Canada. In Slovakia is an opponent who has captured just one medal in tournament history - a bronze in 1999. Montreal Canadiens prospect Martin Reway, Boston Bruins prospect Peter Cehlarik and Robert Lantosi are the only three returning forwards this year but a young group of talent including the likes of Matus Sokel, Patrik Koys and Dominik Briestensky give Slovakia a few legitimate offensive options. With only one defensive returnee, 17-year-old 2015 draft prospect Erik Cernak, the Slovaks will face an uphill climb against a superior Canadian attack. We want to play a fast game. Fast on the forecheck, fast with the puck, fast at getting the puck back, Groulx said on Tuesday. On Thursday, the head coach said he was ready to see his team on the ice in a meaningful game, Its time to play and well be ready. We dont want to be part of scrums after the whistle or anything like that, said Groulx. When you look at our team, we have a lot of skilled players that dont play like that (in the CHL/NHL). I dont expect discipline to be an issue.
