Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- Stephon Marbury came up big at the line and on defense down the stretch against the Portland Trail Blazers. Marbury made three free throws with 1:24 left and forced Damon Stoudamire to shoot an airball just before the buzzer as the New York Knicks edged the Trail Blazers, 92-91. Tim Thomas scored 11 of his 26 points in the fourth quarter and Marbury added 23 points, eight assists and seven rebounds for the Knicks (25-40), who maintained a one-half game lead over the Boston Celtics for seventh place in the Eastern Conference. Thomas returned from a four-game absence with a groin injury, but the Knicks still were without Allan Houston (bruised left quadriceps) and Penny Hardaway (strained right groin). "We need everybody back, the more the merrier. We definitely need everybody back," Thomas said. "I'm just happy to get this win tonight. Now we can just move forward." "Tim Thomas is good," Portland coach Maurice Cheeks said. "It's unfortunate that he had to come back against us. He put the ball on the floor and shot the ball when he had shots. He made a difference tonight." The Knicks trailed, 89-87, before Darius Miles was whistled for fouling Marbury near the top of the arc with 84 seconds remaining. Marbury, who faked Miles into the air before colliding with him, sank all three free throws and Vin Baker made a hook with 38 seconds left to give the Knicks a 92-89 edge. "I never do that. I don't like shot-faking and then jumping into the man," Marbury said. "I always felt that you might not get the call, but I saw him running at me. He knew I was going to shoot the three, so I shot-faked." Stoudamire felt that Marbury was inside the arc when the contact with Miles happened. "Marbury got three free throws when he should have got two," Stoudamire said. "I'm not going to blame the loss on that one play, but at that time in the game, it was too critical. When you lose by one point, there could be a lot of things you could have done throughout the game, but to have a play like that at the end of the game is questionable. This is a tough loss to swallow." Theo Ratliff dunked seven seconds later to cut the deficit to one and Thomas missed a jumper with six seconds left. But the Trail Blazers had no timeouts remaining, and after Stoudamire raced upcourt, Marbury forced him into a difficult fadeaway jumper. "I knew he was going to get the ball and try to make the last shot," Marbury said of Stoudamire. "Moochie (Norris) was screaming and running across the court to pick him up. I heard him, so I squared Damon up and made him shoot over the top of me." "They made the plays they had to make," Cheeks said. "Every time we made a play, they came back to make a bigger basket." Stoudamire scored 20 points and Zach Randolph added 19 for Portland (37-36), which slipped one-half game behind Utah for the eighth and final Western Conference playoff berth. "Every team needs to win, that's what's unfortunate," said Cheeks, whose team was opening a three-game road trip against teams in the Eastern Conference playoff hunt. "This one hurts. It always helps to get the first one and get the momentum to go get the second one. We're still there, so we have to keep fighting."
