GAME RECAP

Larry Johnson had 23 points and John Starks scored 13 of his 15 in the first half as the red-hot New York Knicks continued their mastery over the floundering Washington Wizards, 104-82, in their final visit to USAirways Arena.

Starks, who scored 20 points in Thursday's victory over previously unbeaten Atlanta, continued his strong play off the bench. He and Johnson spurred the Knicks with 13 points apiece in the decisive first half, pacing them to a 60-41 halftime lead.

"Everybody was loose tonight. They were looking forward to the game because we don't play well coming off a big one," said Patrick Ewing. "We came out strong and everyone contributed. I'm happy any way we can win."

The Knicks posted their sixth straight victory over Washington and won for the fourth time in five games overall. New York has dominated Washington, losing only once in the last 22 meetings with the former Bullets.

"Making shots wins games and we were making them tonight," said New York coach Jeff Van Gundy. "I thought we built on last night's game. Our second unit played extremely well. Our quick feet out there were very important defensively."

Chris Webber returned from back spasms to lead the Wizards with 15 points. Rod Strickland added 14 and Calbert Cheaney chipped in with 13 for Washington, which has lost four straight.

New York led 29-28 early in the second quarter when Starks got hot and triggered a 10-0 run. With 3:22 gone in the quarter, he sank a 19-footer to double the lead. Chris Mills hit 1-of-2 from the line and Starks nailed a three-pointer. Jumpers by Johnson and Mills gave the Knicks a 39-28 edge.

"It (the second quarter) was a waste of energy," Washington coach Bernie Bickerstaff stated flatly. "If you looked at our faces, you could see the intensity of the guys trying, but with no purpose."

Johnson scored nine points and Ewing had eight of his 14 to lead the Knicks to a 27-25 lead at the end of the first. Ewing shot 9-of-15 from the field to pace New York, which made 53-percent (42-of-79) of its shots from the field. The Wizards hit just 30 percent in the first half and 36 percent (30-of-84) overall.

Washington's Juwan Howard, who shot just 4-of-16, commented on his team's shooting woes.

"I don't know if it's a phase, sad, or what," Howard said. "When you try so hard out there and you get second and third shots and miss them, it's pretty frustrating. We need to score."

"We usually get down after a big win and we didn't let that happen," said Johnson. "We're starting to show signs of consistency and we've really played as a team."

Johnson, who on Thursday admitted to the New York media that he has been slowed by a sore toe, got fired up after a brief pushing match with Webber midway through the first quarter. Both players drew technicals.

"No, I don't have a problem (with Webber), and I still don't," added Johnson. "Yes, I could say it got me a little fired up tonight."

The Wizards, who are winless in four home contests this season, have failed to reach the 90-point plateau in their last three games. They host their final game at the USAirways Arena next Saturday against the Bulls before opening at the MCI Center versus Seattle on December 2nd.

Terry Davis scored 12 points for Washington, which had all five starters reach double figures.

"Our main thing right now is to stay positive and not get frustrated," Howard said. "It's a long season. We are just trying to pull it together. Our chance will come."

The Knicks' bench outscored Washington's, 42-17, led by Starks and Chris Dudley's 13.
