Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) - The voice from the sideline was different but the result remained the same for the reeling New York Knicks. Under interim coach Herb Williams, the Knicks again failed to execute down the stretch and absorbed their season-high sixth straight loss, a 101-96 setback to the Milwaukee Bucks. For the third time in four seasons, the Knicks changed coaches. Jeff Van Gundy suddenly resigned just 19 games into the 2001-02 season and was replaced by Don Chaney, who lasted until January 2004. Williams coached one game, a win over Orlando, before team president Isiah Thomas hired Lenny Wilkens. Wilkens, the winningest coach in NBA history, guided the Knicks to a 23-19 record and their first playoff appearance in three years. He got New York off to a respectable 16-13 start this season before the team dropped nine of its first 10 games in January. That led to his resignation Saturday, less than 24 hours after a 92-91 loss to Houston. Williams, an assistant with the Knicks since December 2001, was promoted and may keep the job for the remainder of the season. During his postgame news conference, he emphasized poor board work and perimeter defense for the loss. "Tonight it was our rebounding," he said. "Not only our rebounding but our perimeter play. Our forwards were getting beat off the pick-and-roll." "I'm going to lean towards defense. Lenny was real good at running the offense, but you have to shut things down in this league." The Knicks fell to 5-14 in games decided by six points or less. During their longest slide of the season, they have dropped three games on shots with less than five seconds remaining. New York trailed, 75-70, at the start of the fourth quarter, twice fell behind by nine points and pulled within 91-89 with 2:21 to play. But it got no closer as Williams fell to 1-1 all-time as a coach. After four free throws by Stephon Marbury, who scored 33 points, made it a two-point game, Milwaukee's Maurice Williams made a lane jumper at the 1:28 mark. Jamal Crawford missed a jumper and Michael Redd drilled a 3-pointer for a 96-89 lead with 54 seconds to go. Under Wilkens, the Knicks struggled defensively, allowing 97.7 points per game. In this one, Redd's shot came as a result of a defensive breakdown. While employing a zone, New York did not defend a pick-and-roll play and left Redd open on the left side. "They were playing that zone defense and the ball went to Keith (Van Horn) on the pick-and-roll and Keith swung it to Des (Desmond Mason) and he swung over to me," Redd said. "It still comes to desire," Knicks forward Jerome Williams said. "Guys still have to want to play defense. You have to want to go out there and play defense like you want to go out there and score." Crawford answered with a 3-pointer, but Zaza Pachulia slammed home a follow shot with 31 seconds left. Milwaukee made 3-of-4 free throws to seal its third win in four games. "Right now the only thing that is going to get us out of this is better defense," Marbury said. "Having these lapses do not translate into winning." Desmond Mason scored 22 points to lead six Bucks in double figures. "We came out with a lot of energy and intensity," Milwaukee coach Terry Porter said. "It's always tough coming here when a new coach comes in and the players are excited about trying to play well for that new coach." "I know we are a better team than this," said Crawford, who scored 20 points. "Besides the Toronto game, we have lost our last four by a combined 10 or 11 points."
