Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Gilbert Arenas gave the New York Knicks a dose of reality. Arenas scored all of his 14 points in the final six minutes as the Golden State Warriors rallied from a nine-point deficit and snapped a three-game losing streak with a 111-107 victory over the Knicks. "I was just trying to get my team involved," Arenas said. "The last three games, I tried to do it all myself when we got down. But today I just let everybody else do it and I just tried to take it over in the fourth quarter." After opening its six-game western swing with two wins, New York has dropped three in a row and needs a victory in Sacramento on Sunday to salvage a .500 trip. The Knicks let one get away and it was a nightmarish night for former Warrior Latrell Sprewell. Booed every time he touched the ball, he made just 4-of-17 shots and was held to nine points. Arenas was held scoreless for 3 1/2 quarters and the Knicks appeared in control when Clarence Weatherspoon's follow shot made it 96-87 with 6:36 remaining. But the former Arizona star took over down the stretch, sparking a 16-2 run. Arenas drove the length of the court for a spectacular dunk that put Golden State ahead, 97-96, with 4:21 left, then drilled a 3-pointer to make it 103-98 with 2:44 to go. "We had nobody on the floor that could guard him," New York coach Don Chaney said. "At the three-minute mark, I told our guys, this is the guy that takes over. I've watched tape after tape, he just takes over games." The Knicks regrouped and regained the lead, 105-104, with 1:24 left on a jumper by Kurt Thomas, who scored 32 points, one shy of a career high. But New York allowed three shots on Golden State's next possession and the Warriors took the lead for good on Antawn Jamison's jumper in the lane with 55 seconds remaining. Jamison finished with 31 points for Golden State, which swept the season series from New York with its first home win over the Knicks since November 17, 1994. The Warriors shot a season-high 59 percent from the field in a 113-107 victory at Madison Square Garden on February 12. Following an airball by Sprewell, which drew howls from the crowd, Arenas got free for an uncontested layup that made it 108-105 with 17 seconds left. "I knew that he wasn't aggressive (in the first three quarters)," Jamison said. "It's a learning process and he's learning how to play this game. Gilbert knows that we need him as much as anybody for us to be successful." "We've never told him not to score," Golden State coach Eric Musselman added. "He's got great ability to get to the basket. It got to the point where at the six-minute mark, I screamed at him to start shooting the ball. I hadn't said anything up until that point." The Knicks went inside to Allan Houston, whose layup again made it a one-point game with 13 seconds left. But New York was caught napping as Troy Murphy hit Jamison for a breakaway dunk off the inbounds pass. Thomas fouled Jamison, who missed the foul shot to give the Knicks a chance to tie with a 3-pointer. This time, Arenas came up with a key play on the defensive end, knocking away the ball from Howard Eisley as he went up for a 3-pointer. Thomas controlled the loose ball with time running out and launched a 3-pointer that missed everything. Murphy made 1-of-2 from the line with 0.2 seconds remaining for the final margin. "It was their size," Thomas said. "They were able to get inside and tip the ball, get second shots. They killed us on the boards and that was the turning point in the game." The Warriors outrebounded the Knicks by a commanding 62-39 margin, including a 32-12 edge on the offensive end. Murphy grabbed 14 rebounds and Adonal Foyle 10. "If you give up 32 offensive rebounds, you can't win a game," Chaney said. "With a team like that, because they have so many offensive weapons, you can't allow them to get second and third looks. I think the biggest thing in this game is that we gave up second shots and the fact that Arenas beat us to the basket." Jamison scored 17 points while Erick Dampier, Jason Richardson and Bob Sura contributed 11 apiece in the first half, helping Golden State build a 61-57 lead at intermission. Murphy finished with 17 and Sura 16 for the Warriors, who shot just 42 percent (41-of-98). The Knicks clamped down defensively in the third quarter, taking a 70-67 lead on Eisley's 3-pointer with 6:45 left. New York stretched its advantage to 81-71 late in the period. Shandon Anderson contributed 18 points and Houston chipped in 17 for the Knicks, who shot 48 percent (46-of-95).
