Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- The New York Knicks were well-rested coming out of the All-Star break, but it was the Golden State Warriors who had more energy. Playing their second game in as many nights, the Warriors shot a season-high 59 percent from the field and held on for a 113-107 victory over the Knicks. Rookie Challenge MVP Gilbert Arenas scored 25 points for Golden State, which is 2-0 on a four-game East Coast swing. Arenas had a career-high 37 points in Tuesday's 116-113 victory at Atlanta. "We are happy going 2-0 and we just have to keep fighting for the rest of the season if we're going to make a run at the playoffs," Arenas said. The Warriors came in ranked 22nd in the NBA in shooting at 43 percent but took advantage of porous defense by the Knicks, who allowed too many easy baskets. "After leaving the locker room at half, coach said we had to win the third quarter if we wanted to win this game," Golden State guard Jason Richardson said. "We shot the ball good tonight and our defense played hard, forcing the Knicks to take bad shots." Golden State's 59 percent shooting (43-of-73) also was a season high for a New York opponent. The Celtics shot 58 percent against the Knicks on December 14. "We had no fight in us defensively at all," New York coach Don Chaney said. "On nights when we are not shooting the ball exceptionally well, you have to rely on your defense and it was non-existent, in my opinion." Adonal Foyle's jumper capped an 8-0 spurt that gave Golden State a 90-74 lead with 8:37 left. At that point, the Knicks began to hear boos from the Madison Square Garden crowd. Golden State dominated in the paint, outscoring the Knicks, 52-28. Antawn Jamison and Troy Murphy added 17 points apiece for the Warriors. "We played an emotional game last night and tonight we had a better effort," Golden State coach Eric Musselman said. "We played hard on both sides and we talked about it all season. If we want to win games on the road, we have to learn how to maintain a lead to win the game. We have established a home court but now we are starting to play better on the road and winning the two back-to-back games, I hope it puts confidence in my team." For the second straight game, New York tried to make a late comeback. On Thursday, the Knicks suffered a 114-109 setback to the Los Angeles Lakers after nearly erasing a 34-point deficit. In this one, New York closed to 110-107 on Shandon Anderson's 3-pointer with 8.5 seconds remaining. But Arenas hit 1-of-2 from the line a second later and Allan Houston missed a 3-pointer with two seconds to play. Foyle made a pair from the line with 0.4 seconds to go to complete the scoring. Houston scored 32 points and Othella Harrington added 16 for the Knicks, who embark on a crucial six-game road trip that begins Friday in Phoenix. "We needed to win this game tonight before heading on a six-game road trip," Knicks forward Kurt Thomas said. "We didn't make our shots tonight and we made one mistake after another. The intensity was there, but the shots weren't going in." Latrell Sprewell, the subject of trade rumors, turned in a forgettable performance in what could have been his final home appearance for the Knicks, scoring just 12 points of 5-of-18 shooting. "I have not been thinking about it because winning is my first priority," Sprewell said. "I hope this isn't my last game as a Knick in the Garden." The Knicks shot 50 percent in the first quarter and led by nine early, but Golden State only trailed, 30-29, after 12 minutes. New York went cold in the second period, shooting just 25 percent (5-of-25), and the Warriors took a 53-48 halftime lead. Bob Sura hit a 3-pointer with 1.8 seconds left in the third period, then scored the first four points of the fourth quarter to give the Warriors an 86-74 bulge. Jumpers by Mike Dunleavy and Foyle made it 90-74. "We struggled in the first quarter but bounced back in the third quarter and we made the Knicks take some bad shots," Musselman said. "We made a run after having a one-point lead and we never looked back." The Knicks did assert themselves on the boards, holding a 15-3 edge in offensive rebounds, which resulted in 30 more shots. But New York did not convert its opportunities, shooting under 40 percent (41-of-103) after the hot start.
