Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- The New York Knicks exacted their revenge against Chris Childs.

Clearly perturbed by Childs' antics in a 10-point loss to the Toronto Raptors on March 4, the Knicks shut out their former point guard and rolled to an 88-72 victory.

The Knicks dealt Childs to the Raptors for Mark Jackson an hour before the NBA trade deadline. Childs expressed some bitterness over the deal and taunted his former team when he won the first battle of the point guards, scoring 12 points and holding Jackson to four in the Raptors' 98-88 win.

Afterwards, Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy called Childs a "barking dog" and Jackson labeled him a "jerk."

On Wednesday, Childs played his first game at Madison Square Garden as a member of the Raptors, was vociferously booed and missed all four of his field goal attempts, although he led the team with eight assists in 24 minutes off the bench.

"I don't think he was the main reason why they won up there in Toronto and he certainly wasn't the main reason why they lost tonight," Van Gundy said. "He didn't make a shot, but other than that, I thought he played well tonight. I like him, I like what he did for us."

Van Gundy and Childs had a rocky relationship in their five seasons in New York. Several days after the trade, Childs took a verbal shot at his former coach by claiming the Toronto offense allows him to be more creative. But after Thursday's game, he praised the Knicks.

"They outplayed us. That's the bottom line," Childs said. "They came out there and were more aggressive than we were. I'm going out there and continue playing. It's not about me, it's about the team."

Jackson finished with 11 points and three assists, but refrained from taking any verbal jabs at Childs afterwards.

"It is not a battle of me and Chris Childs. He said some things and I said some things," Jackson said. "He's a good guy, we work out together in the summer sometimes. It could have been blown out of proportion with our help, too."

Kurt Thomas led New York with 22 points on 8-of-11 shooting and nine rebounds. After sitting out one game with an upper respiratory infection, Latrell Sprewell scored 21 points for the Knicks, who snapped a six-game regular-season losing streak against the Raptors. New York swept Toronto in a best-of-five playoff series last season.

Vince Carter led Toronto with 22 points on 8-of-20 shooting. The Raptors shot just 37 percent from the field.

"They did a good job of doubling (Carter) and we didn't move the ball as well as we should have, and it cost us," said Raptors coach Lenny Wilkens.

Alvin Williams, Toronto's starting point guard, missed 11-of-13 shots and scored four points.

There were 15 lead changes in the first half, which ended with New York ahead, 45-44.

Sprewell opened the second half with a jumper and a layup and Thomas converted a layup, increasing the lead to 51-44.

New York closed the third quarter with a 14-4 run as Jackson and Thomas scored five points apiece and Sprewell and Glen Rice each added a pair of free throws for a 69-56 advantage.

Toronto pulled within 69-62 on a layup by Keon Clark with 9:58 left in the fourth quarter, but New York responded with a 10-4 run. Othella Harrington hit a pair of hook shots, Sprewell and Allan Houston each made a jumper and Thomas scored on a layup, giving the Knicks a 79-66 advantage with 6:04 left.

The Raptors got no closer than 11 points the rest of the way.
