Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- Allan Houston and Latrell Sprewell survived rollercoaster games and the New York Knicks rebounded from a brutal loss to hand the Golden State Warriors their 10th straight setback, 89-83.

Sprewell, facing antagonist and former coach P.J. Carlesimo for the second time in three weeks, came out blazing with 21 first-half points. But he was scoreless in the second half, missing all seven of his shots.

"I am glad these games are over," Sprewell said. "I just couldn't get into the flow in the second half. I missed some shots."

Houston was plagued by foul trouble and nearly cost the Knicks by committing a turnover and missing a pair of free throws in the final 21 seconds. But he also had a clutch basket, a steal and two free throws down the stretch.

Larry Johnson sealed the contest with two free throws with 2.9 seconds to go as the Knicks rebounded from an embarrassing 80-78 home loss to the Denver Nuggets on Sunday. The win was the fifth in seven games for New York.

"I saw a lot of flashbacks (to Sunday's loss) in the fourth quarter," Houston said. "We haven't learned from the last game but we caught ourselves at the last seconds tonight. One time you can understand, but not twice in a row."

Antawn Jamison had 25 points and a career-high 17 rebounds for the Warriors, who are in the midst of their longest losing streak since dropping 14 in a row during the 1997-98 season. That losing streak began less than a month after Sprewell choked Carlesimo at a practice, leading to his suspension and eventual trade to the Knicks.

The game also marked the return of former Knick All-Star John Starks, who was greeted with a standing ovation. Sent to Golden State last January as part of the package for Sprewell, Starks endured a brutal game, making just 3-of-12 shots -- including a pair of wild misses in final three minutes -- and committing five fouls.

"It felt real good to see them stand up and show their appreciation," Starks said. "My whole focus was for us to come in and get a win. The memories that were going through my mind were nothing but fond."

New York got key contributions from its bench. Johnson had 15 points and six rebounds, Marcus Camby had 13 points and nine rebounds and Chris Childs came off the bench to record eight assists, matching his season high.

The Warriors (2-15) were 1-of-14 from 3-point range but held a 54-45 edge on the glass. The Knicks led 79-68 midway through the final quarter but former Knick Terry Cummings scored five straight points for Golden State.

Kurt Thomas sank a short jumper with 4:47 remaining to give the Knicks an 81-73 lead but Cummings followed with two more baskets to shave the deficit to 81-77 with 3:02 to go. Houston answered with two free throws for New York 11 seconds later and it was a two-possession game until the final seconds.

The Knicks led by three when Houston traveled with 21 seconds to go but Mookie Blaylock rushed a 3-pointer and Houston was fouled with 5.4 seconds left.

"We were looking for a quick two or a quick 3, we wound up taking a quick 3," Carlesimo said. "Our guys had a lot of open looks. It just felt like we didn't hit a 3-pointer all night."

An 84 percent foul shooter, Houston missed both. Golden State did not get a chance at a tying 3-pointer as Mills was fouled on the inbounds pass, making 1-of-2. Johnson and Houston each made two free throws to seal it.

"It happens," said Houston, who missed a crucial pair in the loss to Denver. "I have been a career 85 percent shooter and that is not going to change. All I want to do is make a contribution when it counts and win the game."

The Knicks have won eight of the last nine meetings between the teams.
