GAME RECAP

John Starks scored 12 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter as the New York Knicks extended their home winning streak to eight games with a 95-83 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.

Allan Houston shook off a thigh injury to score 23 points and Patrick Ewing added 17 and 13 rebounds for the Knicks, who have not lost at Madison Square Garden since their home opener against Detroit on November 2nd.

The Knicks limited the 76ers to 38 points in the second half as they avenged an embarrassing 15-point loss in Philadelphia last Sunday after which coach Jeff Van Gundy labeled himself a "disgrace."

"I didn't have a sense when I walked in the locker room tonight that we would rise to the challenge that stood before us," Van Gundy said. "Six days ago they humiliated us, and they have some terrific 1-on-1 players, but tonight we showed some energy and confidence."

Allen Iverson scored 29 points for the Sixers, who have lost three of four overall and 15 of 18 at New York. Fellow guard Jerry Stackhouse, coming off a season-high 32 points in a win against Denver on Friday, managed just five points.

The Knicks took a six-point lead into the fourth quarter and quickly expanded it to 72-61 on a layup by Houston and a three-pointer by Starks with 9:48 to play.

But Philadelphia's Terry Cummings scored four points in an 11-1 burst. Iverson's baseline jumper pulled the Sixers within 73-72 with 6:20 remaining. A jumper by Jimmy Jackson kept Philadelphia at 75-74 before Starks had six points and a steal in a key 11-3 burst.

Starks made two free throws, then stole the ball and fed Charlie Ward for a layup. Houston's third three-pointer built the lead to 82-74 with 3:46 left. Iverson had a three-point play, but Starks buried a jumper from the top of the key and added a layup to cap the spurt at 86-77 with 2:40 left.

"You never really know if tonight's the night," Houston said. "All you can hope for is the right shot selection and that they go down when you take them."

Chris Mills scored 13 points and Charles Oakley pulled down 11 rebounds for the Knicks, who shot 46 percent (38-of-83) from the field and held a 50-43 rebounding edge. Starks made 10-of-15 shots.

Jackson and rookie Tim Thomas scored 11 points apiece for the Sixers, who shot under 40 percent (30-of-76), including 3-of-14 from three-point range. Iverson made 12-of-13 free throws but just 1-of-6 three-pointers.

Stackhouse, who was 12-of-20 from the floor against Denver, shot 1-of-9 in 34 minutes.

"Starks was great the whole game, Houston played with unbelievable energy and Patrick's just Patrick," Philadelphia coach Larry Brown said. "They played better than us, it was a good learning experience."

Dormant Eric Montross scored nine points in the first quarter -- eclipsing his season high -- as Philadelphia built a 26-23 lead.

Starks scored eight points in the second quarter as the Knicks rallied for a 50-45 halftime lead. Houston left midway through the period, favoring his left thigh, but later returned. New York expanded its lead to 67-61 despite 10 third-quarter points by Iverson.
