GAME RECAP

Allan Houston scored 32 points, including a crucial three-pointer with 2:17 left, and Charlie Ward atoned for three atrocious quarters with a huge fourth to lead the banged-up New York Knicks to a 101-89 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.

Houston, who hit 10-of-19 shots from the field, answered a three-pointer by Rick Fox with one of his own. Taking a feed from Ward, Houston lined up and connected from the right wing to extend New York's lead to 92-87. Fox's three-pointer was Los Angeles' lone field goal over the final 6 1/2 minutes.

Since Patrick Ewing went down for the season on December 20th, Houston has raised his scoring average from 13.3 points per game to 19.7. He is also shooting 44 percent from behind the arc in Ewing's absence in the middle.

Ward, badly outplayed by Lakers point guard Derek Fisher over the first 36 minutes, raised his play in the fourth. With four minutes left, he came up with a steal that led to a pair of free throws by John Starks for an 87-84 New York lead. Ward, who scored 10 of his 15 points in the final quarter, then gave the Knicks an eight-point cushion with 55 seconds left, banking a driving layup high off the glass and completing the three-point play with a free throw.

Houston scored 12 of his points in the final quarter and Starks added eight of his 16 in the fourth, when the Knicks hit 17-of-20 free throws.

Los Angeles star center Shaquille O'Neal was held to 19 points by the trio of Charles Oakley, Herb Williams and Terry Cummings, as coach Jeff Van Gundy's double and triple-teaming strategy payed dividends.

Fisher, playing for the injured Nick Van Exel, posted 18 points before fouling out with three minutes to go.
