Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- The New York Knicks put the chaos of the past week behind them and recorded a much-needed 110-105 victory over the Charlotte Hornets.

Playing only two days after president and general manager Ernie Grunfeld was demoted by Madison Square Garden boss Dave Checketts, the Knicks made the necessary plays down the stretch to move past Charlotte into eighth place in the Eastern Conference.

New York, which broke a four-game losing streak, is tied for the final playoff spot with the Toronto Raptors, who picked up a huge victory in Orlando.

"I thought offensively we did some good things," said Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy. "But defensively, we struggled with their speed."

Allan Houston exploded for a season-high 30 points and Patrick Ewing added 26, including a running jumper in the lane with 24 seconds left, as the Knicks held off the Hornets, who were trying to rally from a 14-point deficit.

"I just rolled with my game tonight," said Houston. "I just went out and let the game adjust to me. We really played well as a team tonight. If we're going to make the playoffs, we have to stick together. Right now, we need to prepare ourselves for the playoff run."

Elden Campbell scored 17 points and Derrick Coleman 16 for Charlotte, which had a nine-game winning streak stopped. The Hornets fell one win shy of tying the longest streak in team history, set from February 21-March 13, 1998.

"Losing one out of 10 is not bad," said Hornets guard Bobby Phills. "We fought hard, but still lost. We really wanted the victory, but we can't dwell on it too long. We have a game tomorrow that we must get ready for."

New York entered the fourth quarter leading by 11 points and quickly built an 88-74 bulge with 10:22 remaining when Larry Johnson completed a three-point play. David Wesley made a pair of free throws with just over six minutes left to pull Charlotte within 94-86, but it looked like the Knicks' would avoid another fourth-quarter collapse when Marcus Camby threw down a dunk, pushing the lead back to 10 points.

Charlotte quickly responded, however, as Wesley made two more free throws and Chuck Person drained a 3-pointer to make it 96-91. The teams traded baskets over the next two minutes before a bucket by Coleman and Phills' 3-pointer pulled Charlotte within 101-99 with 1 1/2 minutes to play.

"We are going to win a lot of games if we battle back like we did tonight," Hornets interim coach Paul Silas said. "We want to continue to play hard and give ourselves a chance to win. We dug ourselves a hole tonight but we dug ourselves out of it."

Ewing drove for a layup, but Coleman was fouled by Camby while converting a layup and connected on the ensuing free throw to make it a one-point contest. Camby made the first of two free throws with 47 seconds left and the Hornets inexplicably allowed the slim forward to grab his own rebound.

Camby got the ball to Ewing, who gave the Knicks some breathing room with his runner. Johnson and Houston both made a pair of free throws in the final 13 seconds as New York held on.

"I thought Camby finished around the basket well," added Van Gundy. "I thought he played outstanding tonight. With our team, it's about finding ways to win."

Camby had 18 points and 11 rebounds for New York, which held a 40-37 rebounding advantage and shot 53 percent (42-of-80), including 4-of-10 from 3-point range. Latrell Sprewell had 12 points, eight assists and six rebounds off the bench for the Knicks.

"We played well as a collective unit," said Camby. "I thought it was important that we continue to play hard.

Bobby Phills contributed 16 points, Wesley 14 and Coleman grabbed 11 rebounds for Charlotte, which connected on 46 percent (35-of-76) of its field goals. The Hornets played their second consecutive game without leading scorer Eddie Jones, who has a lacerated finger on his right hand.
