GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) -- Carmelo Anthony recognized the beautiful view the San Antonio Spurs enjoyed Sunday - and what to do with it.

''I know my eyes get bigger if I don't see a shot blocker in the paint,'' he said Monday. ''So I guess that was their game plan, to attack, attack, knowing we didn't have any shot blockers in there.''

And the New York Knicks won't for a few more weeks while Tyson Chandler recovers from a broken leg.

The Spurs sure took advantage, with Knicks coach Mike Woodson counting 17 layups in their 120-89 victory on Sunday. It was the second game Chandler missed, and the Knicks (2-4) will be in real trouble if more opponents punish them the way San Antonio did.
