NEW YORK, MAY 4 (AGENCIES): | Publish Date: 5/4/2021 1:20:12 PM IST

 Russell Westbrook and Stephen Curry shone while Carmelo Anthony made history in Monday’s NBA action - but the night belonged to the New York Knicks who recorded their 12th win in 13 games.

The Knicks’ impressive run was extended with a 118-104 win over the Memphis Grizzlies, with Julius Randle top scoring on 28 points.

Westbrook posted his 32nd triple-double of the season with 14 points, a career-high 21 rebounds and 24 assists as the Washington Wizards won 154-141 against the Indiana Pacers.

Curry scored 42 - his ninth 40-plus point haul of the season - in the Golden State Warriors’ 123-108 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans.

And there was movement in the history books as Anthony rose to 10th in the NBA’s all-time scorers list, after his 14 points for the Portland Trail Blazers put him on 27,318 career points, surpassing Elvin Hayes.

“Top 10 in anything of all time is a special thing,” Anthony said after the Blazers’ 123-114 defeat by the Atlanta Hawks.

“I don’t want to take this moment for granted. I understand how big this moment is.” 

Elsewhere, the Los Angeles Lakers ground out a 93-89 victory over the visiting Denver Nuggets without star player LeBron James, who was resting a sore ankle.
