Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- There apparently is a very big difference between seventh and eighth place in the Eastern Conference.

Kurt Thomas scored nine of his season-high 18 points in the first quarter as the New York Knicks thoroughly outclassed the Philadelphia 76ers with a 91-72 victory, solidifying their hold on seventh place.

The Knicks (20-17) have made the playoffs 11 straight seasons but entered the pivotal contest just one-half game ahead of the upstart 76ers (19-18), who have not made the postseason since 1991.

"They kicked our butts. They were much more active defensively than we were," 76ers coach Larry Brown said. "This was a team loss, it shows you one young team as oppose an older team.

"They obviously know what it takes to win a big ballgame and we haven't figured that out yet."

New York wasted no time in setting an immediate defensive tone and shutting down NBA scoring leader Allen Iverson. The Knicks led by 14 points after one quarter, 18 points at halftime and 29 points midway through the third period before cruising home.

"I don't know why we came out flat," Iverson said. "It's not experience; we beat experienced teams. They just jumped on us and we didn't recover."

"I thought our guys did a good job individually and then the team defense was good and then the third component is that he had some shots he might ordinarily make," Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy said. "If we play as good of defense the next time we play him, he might make some of those shots."

Larry Johnson scored 17 points, Latrell Sprewell added 16 and Marcus Camby 15 for the Knicks, who did not miss Patrick Ewing in the second half. The superstar center scored one point in 12 first-half minutes and did not return after aggravating his Achilles tendinitis that forced him to miss six games earlier this season.

"My Achilles is sore," Ewing said. "It was sore in the New Jersey game; that's why I came out at the end. It felt better yesterday and it felt better at the start of the game and then it got worse, so Jeff took me out.

"Hopefully I can play tomorrow (against Washington). If it's sore, I'm not going to play, if not I'll play. They tell me it's going to take eight weeks not doing anything to be 100 percent, but I don't have eight weeks."

New York has won three straight games behind improved play from Camby, who is averaging 14.3 points during the winning streak after missing two games with a strained groin.

Iverson had one of his worst games of the season, managing only 11 points on 4-of-16 shooting and committing seven turnovers. Philadelphia lost for the 18th time in its last 20 visits to New York and fell into a tie for eighth place with Cleveland.

Tonight's meeting was the first of three over the next 15 days. The Knicks hold a 2-0 edge in the season series.

Thomas, whose previous high of 17 came six days ago against the Charlotte Hornets, came out firing. Meanwhile, the Sixers were having plenty of trouble getting a shot, let alone making one.

New York raced to a 26-12 lead after one quarter, shooting 56 percent (9-of-16) while holding Philadelphia to just 27 percent (4-of-15). Iverson missed all five of his shots and committed four of the Sixers' eight turnovers.

Sprewell scored seven points in the second period as the Knicks extended to 48-30 at halftime. Philadelphia made just 11 shots in the first half.

Johnson and Allan Houston scored five points apiece in a 15-4 run that opened the second half. A 3-pointer by Johnson capped the burst and gave New York its largest lead at 63-34 with 6:38 left in the third quarter.

The Sixers closed to 68-47 entering the final period and opened the quarter with a 12-6 spurt that featured a four-point play by Iverson. A dunk by Tyrone Hill cut the deficit to 74-59 with 8:12 to go and rookie Larry Hughes stole an entry pass. But he threw away a pass of his own and baskets by Johnson and Houston sealed matters at 78-59 with 6:45 left.

Iverson, who averages 27.3 points per game, did not reach double figures until he made two free throws midway through the fourth quarter.

"We cut off the lane and stopped his first move," Knicks guard Chris Childs said. "We made him do something different every time. He likes the cross over and to get penetration and that allows their big men to get in close and then you can't box them out, so we have keep these guys out of the lane."

"They did the same thing everybody else does," said Iverson, who still is nursing a thigh bruise. "I just missed shots I normally make and could never get in a rythum. I don't think it was one little particular thing they did. Don't get me wrong; they played good defense. But a lot of it was me."

Houston scored 13 points for the Knicks, who shot 46 percent (36-of-78), held a 38-34 rebounding edge and forced 27 turnovers.

Hughes scored 12 points and Hill and Matt Geiger added 10 apiece for the Sixers, who shot 38 percent (23-of-60). Philadelphia was without starting forward George Lynch, who was placed on the injured list earlier in the day with a knee sprain.
