Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- Allan Houston wasn't going to let Peja Stojakovic keep shooting without firing back. In an old-fashioned shootout, Houston got the best of Stojakovic with a season-high 39 points as the New York Knicks rallied for a 114-111 victory over the Sacramento Kings. A showdown of two of the top shooters in the NBA saw Houston score 16 points in the fourth quarter, when the Knicks erased an 11-point deficit and notched their first home win of the season. He fueled the decisive run, then made a pair of clutch jumpers and two free throws in the final two minutes. "I just wanted to not expect too much, just go out and kind of read the defense and make good plays," said Houston, who made 13-of-22 shots and 11-of-11 free throws. "A lot of times, things happen good for you if you just play within yourself and just let it come to you." "They made a lot of tough shots," Stojakovic said. "We were contesting Allan Houston, but you have to give him credit." Stojakovic scored a season-high 36 points and had Houston and the rest of the Knicks watching in wonderment as he put on a shooting clinic. During a 12-minute stretch that began late in the second quarter, he scored 23 points on an assortment of jumpers, giving the Kings a 75-66 lead with 4:19 left in the third period. "I was just thinking, 'Let's not let him take over the game in our building,'" Houston said. "That's what I didn't want to happen. I didn't care about trading baskets. I was worried about stopping him." Houston scored 13 points in the period, keeping the Knicks within striking distance at 87-80. Things looked bleak when the Kings turned a pair of turnovers into layups to open the fourth quarter, but Houston found his stroke again. He scored eight points in an 18-2 surge that featured four 3-pointers by the Knicks and virtually no defense by the Kings. Houston's second 3-pointer of the spurt made it 98-93 midway through the quarter. While Houston was squeezing off rounds, Stojakovic was shooting blanks. He went scoreless for the first eight minutes of the quarter as he became fatigued trying to defend Keith Van Horn, who scored 20 points. "Maybe I got tired," Stojakovic admitted. "At that time, Allan and Van Horn got hot and I was exhausted trying to defend them." According to Van Horn, that was part of the plan. "You have to make him play defensively and wear him down a little bit," Van Horn said. "I tried to bang him down low a couple times. You have to make him play both ends of the court and try to wear him out. I thought we did a good job of that." Houston helped the Knicks hold on down the stretch, making a 20-footer and a driving pull-up that kept the lead at 110-106 with 33 seconds to go. Both shots came against Kings guard Doug Christie, an All-Defense selection the last three years. "You've got to get space against a guy like that," said Houston, who scored 35 points in Wednesday's loss to Milwaukee. "He's one of the better ones. I really don't worry too much about the defender as long as I'm trying to be patient and aggressive." Six seconds later, Stojakovic made a 3-pointer - his only basket of the fourth quarter. But Dikembe Mutombo and Houston each made two free throws around a pair by Mike Bibby, and the Kings never got off a potential tying shot. Stojakovic also made 13-of-22 shots. The two-time defending champion of the Shootout at All-Star Weekend was coming off a 34-point outburst in Wednesday's overtime win at Minnesota. "You cannot let a game like this get away," he said. "I thought we had this game." The Kings have lost seven straight visits to Madison Square Garden dating to January 13, 1996. They fell to 1-1 on their road trip, which concludes Saturday in Boston. Kurt Thomas had 17 points and 14 rebounds and Van Horn swept 13 boards for the Knicks, who held a huge 47-29 advantage on the glass. Charlie Ward had 13 points and 13 assists for New York, which improved to 1-2 at home. Bibby scored 19 points, Vlade Divac added 14 and Christie 12 for the Kings, who shot 52 percent (45-of-87) and had 36 assists but did not defend when it counted. "When they score 71 points in the second half, you're not going to win games," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "Sometimes we have a kind of tendency to relax when we get the lead," Stojakovic added. With about four minutes to go in the first half, Stojakovic became unstoppable. He made a fadeaway jumper, four free throws and a tough running banker just before the horn, building a three-point lead to 51-43 at halftime. In the first eight minutes of the third quarter, Stojakovic made a reverse layup, a pair of 3-pointers, another long fadeaway and a runner that turned into a three-point play, keeping the lead at 74-66. "He's a guy that you can't play normal defense on," said Van Horn, the victim on many of those shots. "You can't really be on the weak side to help out and I tried to do that a couple times. You have to play him almost totally different than you do any other player in this league." Houston warmed up for his finish by scoring eight points in the final 2:18 of the period.
