GAME RECAP

Muggsy Bogues hit two key baskets and a pair of free throws in the final four minutes as the Golden State Warriors claimed their fourth road win of the season by defeating the New York Knicks for the first time in more than three years, 87-82.

With the shot clock winding down and Golden State nursing an 81-78 lead, the diminutive Bogues sank a wild left-handed hook shot over John Starks with 90 seconds left.

"In the backyard you mess around with those shots," said Bogues. "You get the feel for the basket and throw up trick shots. It's an instinctive move. You just have to be aware of the shot clock and basicaly make sure the ball gets to the rim. And fortunately it went in. Hopefully it (the shot) will indicate a change of direction for this franchise."

"It was supposed to be a left-handed jump shot, not a lefty hook," said Golden State coach P.J. Carlesimo jokingly. "But those are the kinds of things that have been happening against us."

After Charlie Ward sank a pair of free throws to cut the deficit to 83-80 with 41 seconds to play, Clarence Weatherspoon chased down Donyell Marshall's missed three-pointer and handed the ball to the 5-3 Bogues, who was fouled. Bogues, who finished with eight points, nailed a pair of free throws, giving Golden State an 85-80 cushion with 27 seconds left.

The Warriors, who improved to 12-42, have won four of six games and snapped a three-game road losing streak. They have still dropped 12 of their last 14 games away from home and 24 of 28 on the road this season.

"We have new guys here who have brought some fire to the team," said Marshall of the recent acquistion of guard Jimmy Jackson and forwards Clarence Weatherspoon and Jason Caffey. "We seem to be a better all-around team after the trades and its reflecting in our play."

"It's a totally different ballclub," said Bogues, who was traded from Charlotte with guard Tony Delk in November. "Now we have guys who understand the game. We have guys who can finish. Inside we have presence with Caffey, Weatherspoon and (Erick) Dampier. And we have good perimeter players with Jackson, Delk and Marshall."

Weatherspoon finished with 13 points and 10 rebounds and Dampier added 15 points, five rebounds and four blocks.

The Knicks fell to 6-2 since the All-Star break and lost to Golden State for the first time since November 17th, 1994 in Oakland. They had not lost to the Warriors at Madison Square Garden since February 10th, 1994.

New York grabbed its first lead of the second half on Larry Johnson's shot in the lane with 4:08 to play, but Golden State went on an 8-0 run to take an 81-75 advantage with 2:13 to go.

Bogues sank a floater in the lane with 3:51 remaining, tying the game at 75-75. Marshall, who led the Warriors with 19 points, hit two free throws and, after Starks missed a three-pointer, Weatherspoon sank a pair of free throws with 2:55 left. Dampier capped the run with two of his 15 points on a baseline jumper with 2:13 to play.

Allan Houston, who led all scorers with 25 points, hit a three-pointer to cut the Warriors' lead to 81-78 with 1:55 to go before Bogues hit his hook shot. Charlie Ward hit two free throws with 41 seconds remaining to draw the Knicks to within 83-80, but New York could get no closer.

Marshall, who also grabbed 12 rebounds, scored 14 points in the first half, including 12 in the opening quarter as the Warriors built a 20-16 lead.

Chris Mills gave the Knicks a 26-24 edge on a driving layup with 8:02 left in the second quarter before Golden State used a 12-0 run to take a 36-26 lead with 3:25 left before halftime.

Houston scored just seven points in the first half and shot 2-of-10 from the field before heating up in the third quarter. With the Knicks trailing 55-46, he scored nine points during a 13-5 run to help close the gap to 60-59 with 1:06 to play in the period.

"We played like this in the first half against Miami and then we let them kind of take it to us in the second half," said Carlesimo of the team's 90-82 loss to the Heat on Sunday. "The Knicks came at us tonight in the second half, but we were able to match their aggressiveness and competed on the boards, defensive end and made free throws (16-of-18)."

Johnson had 19 points and 14 rebounds for New York, which had its four-game home winning streak snapped as they attempted to go 10 games over .500 for the first time this season.

"We don't worry about things like this (the loss) because the Warriors are not really an 11-42 team," said New York coach Jeff Van Gundy. "They have some veterans on this team and they have been playing well of late. We just didn't shoot well enough tonight (40.5 percent) and committed too many turnovers (17)."

"We have to get ready to play every single night," said Houston. "Championship teams can go into a game like this and get a win. We weren't able to do it tonight. We still have plenty of room for improvement."
