Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) - With his team's first win within reach, New York Knicks coach Don Chaney didn't want to take Lee Nailon out of the game. Nailon scored 10 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter before tiring as the Knicks surprised the Sacramento Kings, 95-88, to end their worst start in 15 years. Signed as a free agent a week ago after being waived by New Orleans, the 6-8 Nailon quickly has gotten acclimated to his new surroundings. His flurry in the final period helped the Knicks extend a two-point lead to 86-77 with 6:36 to play. But Nailon, who played just 35 minutes as the Knicks lost their first four games, was winded and asked out of the game. Chaney, who has watched his team blow 18 double-digit leads in the last one-plus seasons, first ignored the request before finally giving in. "You kiddin' me?" Chaney said. "There was no way I was takin' that guy out the way he was playing. (But) he was about to die. I tried to ignore him a little bit, but then I knew I had to get him out." "I was asking to come out," said Nailon, who made 9-of-15 shots. "I had played three games and hadn't played that many minutes." Nailon did not score again, but the Knicks built their lead to 13 points and held on down the stretch as the normally sharpshooting Kings misfired from everywhere. With Antonio McDyess out for the season and Latrell Sprewell sidelined with a broken hand, the burden of the Knicks' offense has fallen to Allan Houston. When Nailon became available, Chaney was overjoyed. "I was very happy that we had a guy who knows how to score and score in many ways, in the low-post area, outside the lane," Chaney said. "He has a very good offensive presence. Not only can he score, but he makes great decisions. In talking to (Hornets coach) Paul Silas, that was the one thing he said to me. This guy can truly score and you can go to him late in games. We need a guy other than Allan as an option to go to late in games." "It was a big lift for us because we definitely needed that spark. We know that we have someone that can give us that spark, that lift." Providing points is nothing new for Nailon, who averaged 10.8 a game for the Hornets last season, starting 41 games in place of the injured Jamal Mashburn. He is unconcerned whether he starts or comes off the bench. "I've been a backup ever since I've been in the league, so it's not an adjustment for me," Nailon said. "I'm glad that I'm here and not there (New Orleans) because I'd probably be fighting for minutes." Houston scored 21 points to lead six players in double figures for the Knicks, who avoided their first 0-5 start since the 1987-88 season. Chris Webber had 22 points and 11 rebounds and Peja Stojakovic scored 19 points for the Kings, who dropped the final three games of their four-game road trip to teams that finished a combined 26 games under .500 last season. Madison Square Garden was sold out again and remained a house of horrors for the Kings, who are 1-16 here since moving to Sacramento in 1985. In the final period, the Kings were 3-of-15 from the field and 9-of-16 from the line. "We are going through some tough times," Kings center Vlade Divac said. "We have to survive and get through this. We haven't been playing the way we usually play. We're not making shots. We're not rebounding well. We have to pick up those things." Stojakovic scored 14 points in the third quarter as Sacramento erased an eight-point deficit and pulled into a 72-72 tie before Howard Eisley's only basket of the game gave New York the lead for good entering the fourth quarter. Working against Stojakovic, Nailon opened the period with a pair of jumpers. He used a crossover dribble for a driving layup that made it 80-76 with 8:43 left. "He got hot," Stojakovic said. "He got everything going." Shandon Anderson had a steal and thunderous dunk over Gerald Wallace before Nailon provided a corner jumper and baseline drive around a free throw by Webber, extending the advantage to nine points before asking out. "The last two or three games, our fourth quarters have been bad," Nailon said. "I wanted to step up and let everyone know we can win games." A well-rested Houston replaced Nailon and also abused Stojakovic for a pair of baskets, making it 90-77 with 3:52 to play. The Kings closed to 90-85 but twice lost possession out of bounds. Kurt Thomas finally cashed in with a basket at the 1:01 mark that sealed it. Anderson and Charlie Ward each scored 15 points and Thomas and Othella Harrington added 10 apiece for the Knicks, who shot 44 percent (39-of-88) and held a 44-37 rebounding edge. Bobby Jackson scored 16 points and Divac added 11, eight rebounds and seven assists for the Kings, who shot less than 40 percent (31-of-78). Nailon also provided a boost in a seesaw second quarter, scoring eight points. He helped the Knicks build a 38-31 lead with a basket and two free throws, then added a pair of layups as New York erased a 52-44 deficit with a 10-0 spurt in the last 71 seconds of the first half.
