Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- Kurt Thomas helped put a smile on Stephon Marbury's face. Thomas contributed a season-high 28 points, 16 rebounds and three blocks as the New York Knicks snapped a four-game losing streak with a 94-88 triumph over the Milwaukee Bucks. Allan Houston added 26 points for the Knicks, who had been 0-2 since new team president Isiah Thomas orchestrated a blockbuster trade with Phoenix for Brooklyn native Marbury and Penny Hardaway on Monday. At the end of the game, Marbury smiled and pointed both index fingers toward the scoreboard above the court. "It was a great feeling. It was everything I imagined," Marbury said. "It was just like I saw when I grew up here and played here (in high school). It was just a great atmosphere here tonight. To have this kind of atmosphere here every night is unbelievable to basketball. The electricity is back." Marbury collected 14 points and 11 assists and Hardaway added seven of his 14 points in the fourth quarter for New York, which was crushed by Houston in Thursday's opener of a five-game homestand. In that 111-79 defeat, fans at Madison Square Garden called for Thomas to fire coach Don Chaney. In this one, New York never trailed, although it blew a 14-point first-quarter lead lead and a 12-point third-quarter advantage. But after Joe Smith tied the game, 88-88, on a dunk with 3:11 to play, Houston countered with a baseline jumper with 2:19 remaining to give New York the lead, and Milwaukee was blanked thereafter. Hardaway and Thomas each made a pair of free throws in the final seconds to cap the scoring. "They made plays down the stretch and we didn't," Bucks coach Terry Porter said. "We weren't able to make shots and make plays at the basket, and we didn't get any breaks on the road. This is the NBA and you usually don't. We put ourselves in positon to win tonight; we just didn't make enough plays to do so." The Bucks, who had committed just eight turnovers through three quarters, had nine in the fourth. "We just wanted to come out and play defense," Thomas said. "The last two nights, we weren't getting it done on the defensive end. At yesterday's practice, everybody got comfortable with each other on the offensive end and it showed tonight." The Knicks limited the Bucks to 40 percent shooting (36-of-90), including an anemic 18 percent from the arc (3-of-17). "Our guys communicated very well," Chaney said. "We had a good practice yesterday and tonight we did a good job of reacting to the ball. For the most part, we were very alert. Let's see if we can keep it going on Monday (vs. Dallas)." Michael Redd scored 19 points and reserve Desmond Mason 17 for the Bucks, who had a season-high five-game winning streak snapped. The Bucks trailed, 60-48, 2 early in the second half but pulled within 74-69 entering the fourth quarter. Milwaukee tied the game at 76, 80 and 88 but never could get over the hump. "Sometimes on the road you need a break or two and unfortunately we came up short," Redd said.
