Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- The New York Knicks followed up their best offensive performance of the season with one of their worst.

Rookie Chucky Atkins tied a season-high with 22 points off the bench on 10-of-16 shooting and reserves Monty Williams and Michael Doleac contributed 14 each as the undermanned Orlando Magic defeated the cold-shooting Knicks, 98-77.

Trailing 70-52 after three quarters, the Knicks opened the final period with an 8-0 run as Marcus Camby scored six points, including a tip-in with 10:01 to play.

But Orlando went on a 13-5 burst over the next 4:52 to put away the game. Pat Garrity, who scored 10 points off the bench, started the run with a 3-pointer and two free throws by Doleac allowed the Magic to build a 83-65 advantage with 5:09 to play. The Knicks never got closer than 16 points thereafter.

Playing with only nine players after completing a five-player trade with Denver earlier today, the Magic shot 52 percent (38-of-73) from the field and their bench outscored New York's reserves, 60-33.

"It's the biggest win of the season, easily," Orlando coach Doc Rivers said. "I was surprised by the final score. I was not surprised, however, in our effort. We knew that we only had nine guys, but that doesn't change the intensity we came here with."

Orlando, which never trailed, posted its fifth win in seven games after losing eight straight.

Camby scored 23 points off the bench on 10-of-17 shooting and Larry Johnson added 17 as the Knicks shot 40 percent (30-of-77) en route to their third loss in eight games. New York fell one game behind idle Miami in the Atlantic Division.

"I really just believe that it is my job to get them to have the intent to win every night," New York coach Jeff Van Gundy said. "We had no intent on playing correctly tonight to win -- smart shot selection, defense, rebounding. That's my job."

The Knicks, who scored 66 points in the first half of Sunday's 120-111 win over Sacramento, continued their home woes against teams under .500. New York also has lost to Denver, Washington and Cleveland at Madison Square Garden.

"We have to be ready to play every night. We just can't take nights off," said Knicks guard Allan Houston, who was named to the All-Star game earlier in the day but was held to 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting.

"I don't know if it is the nature of this team, but we have shown a lot of character and a lot of heart, but it has to be on a consistent basis," he added. "I don't know if it comes from people like myself with the leadership, but we have to do it collectibly."

Leading by 13 at intermission, Orlando opened up a 19-point cushion in the third quarter as Darrell Armstrong completed a 6-0 run on a running basket with five minutes to go. The Knicks shot 28 percent (4-of-14) in the period as Orlando extended its lead to 18 entering the fourth quarter.

The Knicks shot a dismal 17 percent (3-of-17) in the first quarter as Orlando opened a 20-10 lead. Atkins scored 11 points in the second quarter and Doleac added 10 as Orlando shot a blistering 83 percent (15-of-18) to move out to a 53-38 advantage.

"We threw a whole different game plan at them this time, from what we did the last time we played them," Atkins said. "We limited Houston's and (Latrell) Sprewell's touches and threw them off their game."

Sprewell, who averaged 19 points coming in, managed only eight on 3-of-8 from the field.

Bo Outlaw grabbed 11 rebounds and Ben Wallace added 10 boards as the Magic outrebounded the Knicks, 44-36.

The Magic traded guard Tariq Abdul-Wahad, forward Chris Gatling and a first-round pick to the Nuggets for guards Chauncey Billups, Ron Mercer and Johnny Taylor earlier in the day. Rookie Corey Maggette, starting in place of Abdul-Wahad, had seven points and four rebounds in 19 minutes.
