GAME RECAP

Larry Johnson scored 19 of his 23 points in the first half and the New York Knicks used a 16-1 run in the second quarter to cruise to an 88-75 victory over the Golden State Warriors, who suffered their eighth straight loss.

Allan Houston added 18 points for the Knicks, who snapped a four-game road losing streak and won for just the fourth time in 12 games overall. New York, which avenged a February 24th home loss to Golden State, was winless on the road since a February 20th victory over Portland.

The Knicks moved into sixth place in the Eastern Conference playoff race, one-half game in front of Cleveland.

Jim Jackson poured in 19 points to lead Golden State, which also suffered its fifth straight home loss. The Warriors are averaging 81.7 points in their last four defeats.

After Jackson hit a jumper to bring the Warriors within 39-36 with 5:17 left in the second quarter, the Knicks took control. Reserve Herb Williams ignited the 16-1 burst with a hook shot with 4:21 remaining and Johnson, who scored eight points in the spurt, capped the run with a three-pointer at the buzzer for a 55-37 lead at intermission.

"It was a great win," Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy said. "We played well offensively. "I thought the last seven minutes of the second quarter were the most crucial as we brought up or defensive intensity."

Johnson was brilliant in the opening half as the Knicks hit 61 percent (23-of-38) from the field. He made all nine of his shots en route to an 11-of-15 performance from the floor.

"I know we could've played a lot better," Golden State coach P.J. Carlesimo said. "We were in it until Larry (Johnson) started scoring. The Knicks did a very good job of spreading the floor, causing us to make mistakes."

The Knicks maintained a double-digit lead throughout the second half. They took their biggest advantage at 82-61 on Terry Cummings' layup with 4:26 to play in the final period.

New York shot 51 percent (38-of-75) from the field compared to 43 percent (31-of-73) by the Warriors, whose 21 turnovers were turned into 22 points by the Knicks.
