Game Story

NEW ORLEANS (Ticker) -- The New York Knicks didn't waste another strong effort by Nazr Mohammed. Mohammed had 14 points and nine rebounds as the Knicks snapped a three-game losing streak with a 86-79 victory over the struggling New Orleans Hornets, who have lost eight straight games for the second time this season. After Mohammed recorded double-doubles in back-to-back losses, New York had four starters score in double figures and played strong defense to pick up the first win of its four-game road trip. "It's all about the wins," Mohammed said. "We played good enough to win. We executed the offense and played solid defense. We had a lot of balance." Mohammed was 5-of-5 from the floor, scored 12 points and blocked a pair of shots and the Knicks shot 54 percent (19-of-35) in the first half en route to a 47-32 lead at intermission. "I've felt good lately," said Mohammed, who shot 67 percent from the floor in the last nine games and ranks sixth in the NBA in field-goal percentage. "I've felt like I can't miss." That is a recurring feeling for opposing centers playing New Orleans since the Hornets' Jamaal Magloire, an Eastern Conference All-Star last season, fractured his right ring finger at Portland November 26. In the Hornets' last four games, starting centers have shot 74 percent (34-of-46) from the floor against them, although Mohammed's big game wasn't by design. "We won't change our offense just because one player's out," Mohammed said. "I don't get a lot of shots in this offense. We have a lot of guys who can score, and we stuck to that approach." But for New York coach Lenny Wilkens, his biggest concern was defense. "You have to focus on what we weren't doing, and that was defending," Wilkens said. "I thought we played good defense in the beginning. I thought we talked more, we helped better and we pushed the ball up. There was a marked difference." The Knicks limited the Hornets to just 35 percent shooting (29-of-83). New York came in next-to-last in the league in field-goal percentage defense. After David Wesley's jumper reduced the deficit to 16-15 with 4:05 left in the first quarter, New York responded with a 17-4 run over the next six minutes. Kurt Thomas started the run with a follow of his own miss and scored six points during the outburst. Stephon Marbury scored five during the surge, which he capped with a 3-pointer at 9:41 of the second quarter, giving New York 33-19 lead. Thomas recorded 16 points, a season-high 15 rebounds and three blocks for the Knicks, who twice led by 24 points in the third quarter before the Hornets closed with a 35-18 run in the final 16 minutes. "We're just not knocking down shots," said New Orleans coach Byron Scott, whose team ranks next-to-last in the league in shooting. "Sometimes we allow our offense, when we're missing shots, to affect our performance on the defensive end. That was the case again tonight." Marbury added 22 points and nine assists and Tim Thomas scored 11 points for New York, which concludes its road trip against Washington on Friday. Former Knick Lee Nailon scored 12 of his 17 points in the second half and Dan Dickau scored a career-best 17 points for the Hornets, who fell to 0-9 at home this season. P.J. Brown had 11 points and 10 rebounds and Chris Anderson chipped in 10 and 12 for New Orleans. "Except for one or two games, that's about the way we've played in every game this season," said Wesley, who had 13 points, seven rebounds and six assists. "We play just well enough to lose. There's not a guy on this team who isn't busting his (rear) and trying to get better, but we've got to dig in a little deeper and find a way to win."
