Knicks pound Nets again as Anthony sits (Yahoo Sports) - Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 16 points and the New York Knicks, playing without the injured Carmelo Anthony, beat the Brooklyn Nets 109-98 on Tuesday night to win the season series between city rivals. The Knicks prevented the Nets from clinching the No. 5 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs and won their third straight in their too-little, too-late strong finish. Amare Stoudemire and J.R. Smith each added 14 points. He won't play Wednesday against Toronto, the final game of the first season in his 11-year career that won't end with a playoff berth - and potentially his last as a member of the Knicks. Panthers jump Sabres to win NHL draft lottery (Yahoo Sports) - The Florida Panthers bucked the odds by jumping up a spot to win the NHL draft lottery and earn the right to the top pick in June. The Panthers, who finished 29th in the league, vaulted ahead of the last-place Buffalo Sabres, who had the best odds of winning the lottery held in Toronto on Tuesday night. The Panthers (29-45-8) had an 18.8 percent chance of winning the lottery, behind only Buffalo (21-51-10), which had a 25 percent shot. The top two projected prospects are left wing Samuel Bennett, of OHL Kingston, who finished first in the final rankings released by NHL Central Scouting last week, and OHL Barrie defenseman Aaron Ekblad. Injured Anthony will sit out Knicks' last 2 games (Yahoo Sports) - Carmelo Anthony's will miss the final two games with a torn labrum in his right shoulder, ending his first playoff-less season and potentially his New York Knicks career. But it stunningly amounted to nothing, as the Knicks were eliminated from playoff contention on Saturday night. I do,'' Knicks coach Mike Woodson said Tuesday. Anthony initially hurt the shoulder earlier this month but kept playing as the Knicks were trying to rally to grab the No. 8 seed. Hamilton back to brilliant best - Lowe - Anthony will sit out Knicks' last 2 games (Yahoo Sports) - Carmelo Anthony will miss the final two games with a torn labrum in his right shoulder, ending his first playoff-less season and potentially his New York Knicks career. The Knicks said he would not require surgery at this point and would be evaluated in about a month. Coach Mike Woodson had already said Anthony might not play against Brooklyn on Tuesday or home against Toronto on Wednesday because the games were meaningless for New York. The Knicks had been eliminated from postseason contention on Saturday night.

A quiet post-Masters for Watson, with a surprise (Yahoo Sports) - Bubba Watson decided to keep his post-Masters victory more low key this year. Before leaving Tuesday morning for The Greenbrier resort in West Virginia, Watson decided to pay an unannounced visit to the Golf Channel studio and wanted to keep it a surprise. ''True Bubba style,'' manager Jens Beck said. Beck said Watson's wife and the wife of Golf Channel president Mike McCarley are friends, and not even the top man at the network was aware of the plans. Moore to have elbow surgery, miss rest of season (Yahoo Sports) - Tampa Bay Rays left-hander Matt Moore will miss the remainder of the season after opting to have elbow-ligament replacement surgery.

Michigan losing Stauskas and Robinson to NBA (Yahoo Sports) - Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III are skipping their last two seasons at Michigan to enter the NBA draft and chase a dream they've had since they were kids. You see a lot of kids now making that jump from Canada and I'm glad to be a part of that group.'' Robinson, meanwhile, might have looked at the league a little earlier because his father - nicknamed ''Big Dog'' - was the No. 1 overall pick in the 1994 NBA draft. ''He stayed an extra year in college when he thought he wasn't ready.'' Robinson, who is from St. John, Ind., said the NBA's undergraduate advisory committee informed him he would be a first-round pick if he entered the draft and he chose to make the leap Monday night. He turned down a chance to enter the draft last year as a likely first-round pick and ended up having back surgery last season, putting his standing as an NBA prospect in doubt.
