Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- In front of both their former nemesis and general manager, the New York Knicks came alive late in the fourth quarter and rolled through overtime for a 111-101 victory over the previously undefeated Milwaukee Bucks.

Allan Houston scored a season-high 30 points -- all in the first three quarters -- and Marcus Camby added 23 points, 13 rebounds and six blocks for New York, which outscored Milwaukee 19-4 over the last five-plus minutes.

Latrell Sprwell scored 21 points for the Knicks and began the game-ending run with a pair of free throws cut the deficit to 97-94 with 42 seconds left in the fourth quarter.

After Milwaukee's J.R. Reid missed a layup and Houston missed a 3-pointer, Sprewell nailed a basket from behind the arc on the right wing to tie the game with 7.9 seconds left. The basket came after Charlie Ward intercepted a bad pass by Milwaukee center Ervin Johnson, who rebounded Houston's miss.

"This game was won on effort, who wanted it more down the stretch," Camby said. "We just kept fighting and chipping away at it and eventually Latrell hit that big 3."

"I was calling for it," Sprewell said. "I don't know if (Ward) heard me, but he made a very unselfish play and I was fortunate the shot went in. It's about getting the ball to go in. That's all I was thinking about, getting that shot up and getting it to go down."

Sprewell opened the overtime with a 15-footer from the right corner and Chris Childs and Camby followed with baskets to push the lead to 103-97 with 3:03 to play.

Camby and Sprewell both were acquired when Ernie Grunfeld was the Knicks' general manager. Grunfeld held that title for four seasons and spent a total of 18 years with the Knicks as a player or executive.

Grunfeld had differences with coach Jeff Van Gundy over playing time for Camby and Sprewell and was fired during last season. With a roster he constructed, the Knicks went on to the NBA Finals. Grunfeld was hired as general manager of the Bucks.

"This team showed character to comeback like they did tonight," Van Gundy said. "The biggest factor was Marcus getting up off the floor and going back in. It would have been easy to take the rest of the night off. I thought that was the biggest factor, having a chance to come back. We came back."

Michael Jordan, who time after time ended New York's hopes for a championship as he led the Chicago Bulls to six titles in the 1990s, received a standing ovation when he was shown on the scoreboard monitor in the second quarter.

Glenn Robinson scored 23 points and Ray Allen added 18 for Milwaukee, which was off to its third 3-0 start in four seasons. Allen is one of five players chosen by Jordan to endorse his line of Nike apparel.

"The toughest thing about a game like this is to go into overtime and lose," Allen said. "The game was going in our favor, we had battled them to the point where all we needed to do was deliver some knockout blows. But instead we just gave the ball away in the fourth quarter and they hit their free throws."

The Bucks had a chance to win in regulation but NBA Player of the Week Sam Cassell missed a 3-pointer with 2.9 seconds left. Robinson, who had nine boards, grabbed the miss but his shot from the paint bounced off the glass and rim as time expired.

Milwaukee was held scoreless in overtime until Danny Manning made a 14-footer to cut the deficit to 103-99 with 2:50 to play. After Houston missed a 3-pointer, Manning hit another 14-footer with 2:11 left.

But Sprewell, who scored 13 points in the fourth quarter and overtime, sank a 20-footer to push the lead to 105-101 with 95 seconds left. Sprewell converted two free throws 33 seconds later and Childs made four from the line in the final minute.

Houston scored nine points in the opening quarter, including a 15-footer that gave the Knicks their biggest lead of the game, 32-19, with 1:11 left.

The Bucks chipped away at the deficit in the second period and pulled within 48-47 when Robinson made a jumper from the right corner with 2:02 left, capping a 7-0 burst.

Allen converted a three-point play with 8:26 left in the third to cap another 7-0 spurt and give the Bucks a 62-56 advantage. The Knicks tied it when Houston made two free throws with 5:14 left before the Bucks scored eight straight points, taking a 75-67 lead on Robinson's follow shot with 2:53 to go.

Robinson made a jumper from the left corner to give Milwaukee its biggest lead, 83-73, 43 seconds into the fourth quarter. Camby converted two free throws to cap a 10-2 surge and pull the Knicks within 91-90 with 3:51 left.
