Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- It took over three quarters, but the slumping offense of the New York Knicks finally woke up.

Marcus Camby scored 23 points and grabbed 20 rebounds as the New York Knicks used a big fourth quarter and took advantage of the absence of Tracy McGrady to post a 94-82 victory over the Orlando Magic.

McGrady strained his right quadriceps while chasing Camby downcourt and left the game with 3:40 remaining in the second quarter. Seventh in the NBA in scoring at 27.2 points per game, he did not return and finished with four points in 15 minutes.

It did not seem to matter as Orlando used the hot shooting of rookie Mike Miller to build a 66-58 lead with 5:39 left in the third quarter. Named co-NBA Rookie of the Month earlier in the day, Miller had 10 of his 27 points in the third as the Knicks went with their reserves on the court for most of the period.

"It had nothing to do with giving them (starters) a break," New York coach Jeff Van Gundy said. "I am done talking to the starting group about their responsibilities. They have to get loose, get into a sweat and they have to play well and if they don't, they are coming out."

Camby and Latrell Sprewell were re-inserted and each had four points as New York closed the quarter with an 8-2 spurt to trail, 68-66, entering the final quarter.

After a free throw by Bo Outlaw gave Orlando its last lead at 69-68, Sprewell scored six straight points to give the Knicks the lead for good at 74-69 with just over nine minutes remaining. Kurt Thomas had a free throw and Charlie Ward nailed a 3-pointer for a 78-71 lead with 6:42 to play.

Sprewell finished with 14 points, including 12 in the second half. Both Sprewell and Camby suffered from early foul trouble, with each picking up a pair in the first quarter.

"I think we made stops, defended better and got a couple easy baskets in transition," Sprewell said. "I never got in the game early with the foul trouble but (once) I got one or two to go down, I got in a flow."

Miller's final basket brought the Magic within 84-78 with 4:14 to play but a jumper by Sprewell, a dunk by Camby and a fast-break layup by Glen Rice gave New York a 90-78 advantage with 3:02 left.

Orlando shot just 32 percent (6-of-19) and scored 14 points in the final quarter.

"We were like a dam trying to hold on," Orlando coach Doc Rivers said. "Once it broke, we just couldn't score at the end. We ran out of players at the end. Losing Tracy was one thing and then Darrell (Armstrong) going down, we didn't have anyone left."

McGrady will receive treatment and may play Wednesday, depending on his response. Rivers indicated that Armstrong was hurting toward the end of the game but the exact injury was not disclosed.

Camby had 16 points and 14 rebounds in the second half. Fifteen of his rebounds came on the defensive end as New York held a 46-38 edge on the glass.

"I was just being aggressive," Camby said. "I didn't want to wait for other guys. I have been working on my jumper and I am just trying to be consistent."

Kurt Thomas made 6-of-7 shots for 15 points off the bench while Ward and Glen Rice each added 11. New York's reserves outscored Orlando's, 37-31.

"Kurt really struggled early in the game and then he really played good basketball," Van Gundy said. "In the past we have had trouble guarding John Amaechi in the post and I think that Kurt defended him pretty well and got us a couple of second shots in the first half that kept us afloat."

The Knicks shot 47 percent (35-of-75) captured the season series from the Magic, 3-1.

Armstrong and Outlaw each scored 10 points while Amaechi added nine off the bench. Rookie of the Year candidate Miller made 10-of-16 shots, including 6-of-10 from beyond the arc.

"Somebody's got to step up and do something," Miller said. "I think the confidence is coming and (Rivers) did a good job of putting that confidence in me, telling me to shoot."

Orlando shot 41 percent (32-of-78) and made just 10-of-18 free throws.

The first half featured 17 lead changes and seven ties as the teams went into the locker room knotted at 49-49. Miller had 12 points at halftime while Allan Houston scored all 11 of his points in the first half.
