The Knicks' first regular season game in the renovated Madison Square Garden was a success.

The Knicks blew a 25-point halftime lead to the Bucks Wednesday night, but went back in front for good on a Tyson Chandler dunk with just over two-and-a-half minutes to play.

New York would go on to win 90-83.

Carmelo Anthony led all scorers with 19 points.

The Knicks play again Thursday night in Chicago.

Meanwhile, it was not as good a start for the Nets, who lost their season opener in Cleveland 98-94.

Brook Lopez led Brooklyn with 21 points.

Paul Pierce added 17, but missed a shot with about 20 seconds left that would have tied it.

The Nets play their home opener Friday night against the Heat.
