Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Allan Houston refused to let the New York Knicks die. Houston's pull-up jumper with 4.4 seconds left in overtime gave the Knicks a wild 94-92 victory over the Utah Jazz that kept alive their flickering playoff hopes. "I thought this said a lot for us in terms of our maturity," Knicks coach Don Chaney said. "If you think about the beginning of the year, we would collapse in games like that. When teams would start coming at us, we would just fold." After the Knicks blew a 10-point lead in the last four minutes of regulation, there were just three baskets in overtime. John Stockton gave the Jazz a 92-90 lead on a layup with 3:49 left, but Utah did not score again. "We didn't make any shots," said Stockton, who committed seven turnovers. "They played good defense and they made just enough shots. It wasn't pretty." A jumper by Kurt Thomas tied it midway through the extra session and neither team scored again until the final seconds. From the right wing, Houston dribbled around the taller, defensive-minded Andrei Kirilenko. He pulled up, let Kirilenko fly by him and nailed a 15-footer, giving the Knicks the lead. "He's a good athlete and he's long," Houston said. "He's a guy that can back up off you because he's so long and still be able to contest your shot." "It's his normal shot from mid-range, so that's my fault," Kirilenko said. Thomas blocked Stockton's leaner in the lane on the final possession as the Knicks (34-42) improved to 2-0 on their road trip. With six games left, they remained 3 1/2 behind Milwaukee in the race for the Eastern Conference's final playoff berth. "This is how I want to finish," said Chaney, who knows the playoffs are a near impossibility. "I truly believe that we have to finish this way to carry into next season." "It's a shame, I think, if we don't make the playoffs," Knicks swingman Latrell Sprewell said. "We've played hard. This is one of those games where a lot of people chipped in for the win." Houston scored 27 points and Thomas added 20 and nine rebounds. The Knicks held the Jazz to 38 percent (34-of-90) from the field but were outrebounded, 59-39. Karl Malone had 23 points and 11 rebounds and Kirilenko added 16 and 12 for the Jazz (45-31), who fell into a tie with the Los Angeles Lakers for sixth place in the Western Conference. Utah had won eight of its last nine games. Midway through the third quarter, Malone had a brief scuffle with Knicks forward Clarence Weatherspoon. Chaney came onto the court to protect his player and got into it with Malone. "I'm too old for him, but I'm not gonna get pushed around," Chaney said. "I wasn't coming at him; I was trying to keep 'Spoon from hitting him." Houston's turnaround jumper gave the Knicks an 88-78 lead with 4:06 left in the fourth quarter before the Jazz came storming back. Kirilenko hit a 3-pointer, Matt Harpring converted a three-point play and Stockton sank two free throws to make it a two-point game with 2:31 to go. "We made the stops," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "We got up and after them a little bit, but you have got to do that for 48 minutes." Two foul shots by Malone tied it at 88-88 with 32 seconds remaining. Thomas made a foul-line jumper with 14 seconds left, but Malone's lob pass found Greg Ostertag for a lay-in with 3.7 seconds to play. Kirilenko blocked former Jazz Shandon Anderson's shot, forcing overtime. Anderson scored 17 points and Weatherspoon shook off a hand injury to add 10 and nine boards for the Knicks, who shot 43 percent (37-of-86). Calbert Cheaney scored 13 points, Harpring added 12 and 10 rebounds and Ostertag had eight and 11 for the Jazz, who have lost consecutive home meetings with the Knicks after winning the previous eight.
