The New York Knicks ended their three-match losing streak by defeating the San Antonio Spurs 105-101 at the AT&T Center in Texas.
Eastern Conference franchise the New York Knicks have had a miserable festive period as they lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder and lost both ties of their double header with the Toronto Raptors.
However Mike Woodson's side bounced back to claim a surprise victory against the Raptors.
Carmelo Anthony, on his return from an ankle injury, was in devastating form for the Knicks - scoring 27 points and 12 rebounds.
Anthony's teammate Iman Shumpert was also in fine form - recording his highest score of his career to date with 27 points.
Woodson, speaking to ESPN, said after the game that he was hoping members of his side could continue to put in superb individual displays like they had last season.
"I keep harping on last year. There were a lot of times last year when somebody would step up and do something amazing to help you win games.
"We just haven't been able to experience much of that this season."
The Knicks go into tonight's encounter against the Houston Rockets with a record of 10 wins from 31 games.
