Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- Larry Johnson celebrated his 30th birthday by scoring 13 of his 19 points in the second half as the New York Knicks held off the Charlotte Hornets for a 94-86 victory.

The Hornets closed to 80-79 with 5:56 remaining when David Wesley drained a 3-pointer. Johnson scored five points and Latrell Sprewell had four, fueling a 12-3 surge that pushed the lead to 92-82 with 1:36 to play.

Allan Houston scored 20 points and Sprewell added 16 for the Knicks, who won for the fourth time in their last 10 games and rebounded from an embarrassing 76-63 loss at Chicago on Friday.

Playing his second game since being acquired from the Los Angeles Lakers, Eddie Jones scored a season-high 23 points to lead Charlotte, which fell to 2-9 away from home.

"I'm feeling confident and I'm feeling confident in my team," Jones said. "I'm cheering for everybody and I want everybody to get in there and play well. Once you have a team concept where everybody is cheering for each other, that's how you win ball games."

"It's not going to be an overnight thing, but I can see real good things happening for us," Charlotte coach Paul Silas said. "You hate to lose any of them but you can find good things in every loss. I just want the guys to understand that it's going to take some time but we will get there."

Derrick Coleman returned to the Hornets' lineup after missing the last four games with a sprained foot and scored 17 points.

The Knicks held a 59-50 advantage with just under eight minutes left in the third quarter after Johnson converted a three-point play. But Jones scored five straight points and Coleman had four to help the Hornets draw even.

Jones connected 8-of-15 shots for the Hornets, who shot 42 percent (28-of-66) from the floor.

With an NBC report circulating before the game that New York coach Jeff Van Gundy could be fired if the Knicks did not win tonight, his team responded in the first half.

Following a lackluster first quarter from both teams, the Knicks seized control in the second period.

After Jones hit 1-of-2 free throws to bring the Hornets within 36-33, Marcus Camby had a layup and Houston nailed a 3-pointer to trigger a 12-1 burst that gave the Knicks their biggest lead at 48-34 with three minutes to play before intermission.

The Knicks led 52-42 at the half. Houston, who made 6-of-16 shots, scored 14 points in the opening half.

Johnson, one of the Knicks' leaders on the floor, praised his coach afterwards.

"I'm a Jeff Van Gundy fan," he said. "Now, I'm not trying to push him, push him and push him, but it's a fact that we're the most prepared team in the NBA."

Van Gundy thought his team's effort was sparked by Friday's embarrassing 76-63 loss to the Bulls rather than rumors about his future.

"I think it was a response to pride," he said. "No one involved was proud of the game in Chicago. I think it was more of a response to their own individual and team play."

In addition to Sprewell's effort off the bench, Chris Childs added 12 points for the Knicks' reserves, who outscored the Hornets' bench, 32-11.

New York also got a spirited effort from center Chris Dudley, who was making his third straight start in place of an injured Patrick Ewing. Dudley grabbed 13 rebounds as the Knicks held a 49-35 rebounding edge, including an 18-8 mark on the offensive boards. Ewing is day-to-day with Achilles tendinitis.

The Knicks shot 42 percent (31-of-74) and made 27-of-35 free throws. New York came into the contest ranked 25th in the league in foul shooting.
