Smith, who took an NBA-record 22 3-point shots in Sunday’s loss to Miami, didn’t wait long to start firing again, missing from long range on the game’s opening possession.

The outside shot was more of an option for the Raptors in the first quarter. Six of Toronto’s eight made baskets came from beyond the arc, including three from Lowry, who scored 12 points as the Raptors took a 26-24 lead after one.

Toronto made just one 3 in the second but got six points each from DeRozan and Valanciunas, overcoming eight from Anthony, to lead 47-45 at halftime.

DeRozan scored 11 points in the third but Anthony had nine, including a jump shot with 17 seconds left, as the Knicks took a 78-77 lead into the fourth.

NOTES: Toronto’s Amir Johnson returned after missing the three previous games with a sore right ankle. … Lowry increased his career-high total of 3-pointers to 180, passing Morris Peterson’s franchise record of 177, set in 2005-06. … Canadian basketball player Andrew Wiggins attended the game.
