Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- Playing their third game in as many days, the New York Knicks practically had the night off against the lifeless Los Angeles Clippers.

Latrell Sprewell came off the bench and scored 20 of his season-high 31 points in the first half as the Knicks posted their third straight win with a wire-to-wire 113-89 rout of the Clippers.

"The most important issue after the Chicago game is we came out and put a little run together," said Sprewell, referring to the Knicks' 76-63 setback to the Bulls on Friday. "We had a meeting to talk about things and since then we've played well as a team. We're getting to where we want to be, moving the ball around and just playing and having fun."

The Knicks (14-9) opened the contest by making four straight 3-pointers, including a pair by Larry Johnson, who added a layup to give New York a 14-0 lead less than four minutes into the game.

"They just started out with the three by Johnson," Los Angeles coach Chris Ford said. "The guy that was guarding him forgot to guard him and it was an onslaught from there. They were 8-for-11 in the first quarter and we weren't doubling down. We just weren't playing defense. The guys that started the game just came out not ready to play basketball."

Sprewell, who scored 28 points in Milwaukee on Monday, hit a 3-pointer to spark a 10-0 second-quarter run as the Knicks opened a 57-38 lead with 1:12 left in the half and never looked back.

New York has dominated Los Angeles, winning 22 of the last 25 meetings. The Knicks have won five straight and 11 of 13 at home vs. the Clippers.

Allan Houston scored 24 points and Johnson added 20 for the Knicks, who have won four of five since losing leading scorer and rebounder Patrick Ewing, who is sidelined with Achilles tendinitis.

"We got into the flow out there and you quickly forget about playng three games in three nights," Houston said. "You just start playing ball and the energy level goes up."

Maurice Taylor and Lamond Murray scored 18 points apiece for Los Angeles, which is winless in 10 road games this season and has not won away from home in 364 days. The Clippers have dropped 18 consecutive road contests dating to a 107-102 victory at Golden State on March 17, 1998.

"This is the same thing that happened in my rookie year," said Murray, who was a member of the 1994-95 Clippers that dropped their first 17 games. "We did the same things that we did before. I know what it takes to win, guys know what it takes. We just had a few letdowns the last couple of games. We just have to go out there and do it for 48 minutes."

The Clippers (1-20) have lost three straight since posting their lone victory of the season against Sacramento on Thursday.

"After the Sacramento game, we were playing pretty good defense," Ford added. "Then we take a step back. We have so many guys who are going to be free agents and I've been juggling lineups here and there, giving them opportunities and guys aren't taking advantage of it. It would be a golden opportunity for somebody to go out there and really try and work hard to get a future contract or minutes. Guys are just passing up the opportunities."

Charlie Ward collected 15 points and Kurt Thomas added 12 and 12 rebounds for New York, which shot a season-high 56 percent (38-of-68) from the field. The Knicks held a 36-26 advantage on the boards.

Rookie Michael Olowokandi scored 12 points and Pooh Richardson added 10 for the Clippers, who shot 44 percent (30-of-68) and yielded 28 points on 19 turnovers.

Charles Smith finally got the Clippers on the board with a 19-footer from the left corner that made it 14-2 with 8:06 left in the opening period.

Johnson responded with another 3-pointer and Houston buried a 20-footer to open a 19-2 cushion with 6:54 left.

New York was a sparkling 9-of-14 from long range, including a combined 8-of-12 by Johnson, Houston and Sprewell.

Ward drained a pair of free throws to give the Knicks their biggest lead of the night, 113-81, with 2:30 to play.

New York posted back-to-back 100-point efforts for the first time this season and came within two points of matching their season-high total, which came in a 115-113 overtime victory over Minnesota on February 25.
