Terrence Ross scored all 22 of his points in the fourth quarter Sunday night as the visiting Orlando Magic earned their first win of the season by pulling away for a 110-104 victory over the New York Knicks.

Cole Anthony, playing in the arena his father called home for his first four NBA seasons, posted his first double-double with 29 points and a career-high 16 rebounds as the Magic outscored the Knicks 36-24 in the fourth to avenge Friday’s 121-96 loss to New York in Orlando.

Anthony, who also had eight assists, is the son of Greg Anthony, who opened his 11-year NBA career with the Knicks.

The win was the first for the Magic’s rookie head coach, Jamahl Mosley.
