Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- The Toronto Raptors' nightmarish road trip finished in the worst possible place. The Raptors completed a winless five-game road trip with their sixth consecutive loss to the New York Knicks, who got 26 points and 14 rebounds from Kurt Thomas in a 95-75 victory. Toronto's losing streak reached a season-high eight games with its fourth straight loss at Madison Square Garden. The Raptors have lost six straight road games and 12 of their last 13 overall. "I'm glad this trip is over," Toronto coach Lenny Wilkens said. "They just have to end it. Right now, the way things are going we have to have everybody working on all cylinders. When all cylinders aren't working, we struggle. We need to work on some things and we need to practice." "We came into the game pumped up, we were ready to go. Guys were excited, we were trying to get on a winning track, and start the year off fresh," Raptors forward Jerome Williams said. "A few mistakes and the walls caved in." New York held Toronto under 100 points for the 23rd consecutive game - the fourth-longest such streak in the shot-clock era. Allan Houston scored 15 points and Michael Doleac and fellow reserve Charlie Ward added 11 apiece for the Knicks, who have won the first two games of a four-game homestand. The Knicks had a 38-35 lead late in the second quarter before scoring 12 of the final 14 points in the first half. Houston sparked the run with a jumper and Charlie Ward and Latrell Sprewell made 3-pointers around a dunk by Thomas. Houston capped the quarter with a jumper with one second remaining to give New York a 50-37 halftime cushion. "We came in at halftime and we were upset that we let them get back into the game," Thomas said. "We just wanted to come out and jump on them early. Not give them an opportunity or any kind of confidence." The Raptors did not get closer than 10 in the second half and the Knicks had their largest lead at 91-69 on a 14-foot jumper by Thomas with 5:13 remaining. New York shot 48 percent (37-of-77) from the floor, despite Sprewell's 1-of-8 performance, and committed only nine turnovers en route to its third win in four games. "We're trying to establish some consistency," Houston said. "I think that is what we are doing. In a long season you are going to have stretches where you're not playing well. You have to find a stretch where you find the rhythm and find some consistency. I think we're putting a lot of effort into it." Toronto was limited to 38 percent (31-of-81) shooting, including 3-of-14 from 3-point range, and had as many turnovers as assists with just 14. Alvin Williams scored 15 points as the Raptors lost for the 14th time in 18 road games this season. Voshon Lenard scored 13 points and Jelani McCoy collected 13 and 15 rebounds for Toronto, which could not capitalize on a hot start. The Raptors made 10 of their first 15 shots but still was clinging to a 21-19 lead after Lindsey Hunter's 3-pointer with 65 seconds left in the first quarter. Ward responded with a 3-pointer and the Knicks took the lead for good when Doleac opened the second quarter with a long jumper for a 24-23 edge. "I was very concerned once we got the lead, because usually when you get a lead you have a tendency to relax," New York coach Don Chaney said. "You tend to be not as sharp and not as intense. I thought our second unit really kept the pressure on and kept the intensity level high."
