Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- A record-setting night by Latrell Sprewell kept the New York Knicks from their first three-game losing streak against the Los Angeles Clippers in over two decades. Sprewell set an NBA record by making all nine of his 3-pointers and scored a season-high 38 points as the Knicks ended a two-game slide to the Clippers with a 105-92 victory. The previous record for 3-pointers without a miss was eight done three times, most recently by San Antonio's Steve Smith on November 3, 2001. Jeff Hornacek was the first player to hit all eight, doing it for Utah on November 23, 1994. Sam Perkins was next, making all eight for Seattle on January 15, 1997. Coming off a 3-for-14 performance in Saturday's loss at Milwaukee, Sprewell also tied his own team record for 3-pointers and shot 14-of-19 overall as New York won for the sixth time in its last seven home games. Sprewell's performance helped the Knicks avoid losing three in a row to the Clippers franchise since dropping the first three meetings of the 1977-78 campaign, when the club was known as the Buffalo Braves. Sprewell scored 17 points in the third quarter as New York opened an 85-72 lead. He had seven 3-pointers entering the fourth quarter and was on the bench as the Clippers tried to rally. "I didn't know about it until right after the game," Sprewell said. "I'm glad my shot was going on and never knowing about the streak. There was a couple that left my hand that I thought wasn't going in. But it went in." "I really wasn't aware that he had made that many consecutive threes," Knicks coach Don Chaney said. "I knew they were going in, but I didn't know that they were that consecutive. He has an unbelievable work ethic. He's the last one to leave the gym. He gets his shots in every day. I'm just happy to see the benefits of that after all that hard work." Los Angeles was within 93-82 when Sprewell checked in for Shandon Anderson at the 6:02 mark. He tied the record with 5:07 remaining and gave the Knicks a 96-84 advantage. Just 22 seconds later, he set the record from in front of the Clippers' bench, increasing the lead to 99-86. Sprewell had a chance to increase his total but instead assisted on two straight baskets by Kurt Thomas for a 103-86 advantage with 2:20 to go. The Knicks nearly tied another record by making 14-of-24 from the arc. They were two off the club record for three-pointers set at Philadelphia on January 10. New York was clinging to a 55-51 lead after Los Angeles' Corey Maggette hit a layup with 10:48 left in the third period. But Houston's only 3-pointer of the night sparked a 27-12 run that rebuilt the lead to 82-63 with 2:26 to play. During the spurt, Sprewell drilled four 3-pointers, a layup, a short jumper and a free throw. He entered the final quarter with 30 points on 11-of-16 shooting. "It just shows how solid Spree is as a player," Clippers coach Alvin Gentry said. "The last couple of 3-pointers, Quentin Richardson was in his face and he was still making his shots. He was in a zone tonight." "Spree was on fire and there was nothing anyone could do tonight," Richardson added. "Every time we got close, he came down, hit a couple of baskets and started another Knick run." Los Angeles scored the game's first basket but never led thereafter. Sprewell had eight points through the first 12 minutes as New York raced out to a 25-17 lead. The Knicks led 55-47 at halftime. Houston added 20 points and Howard Eisley 11 for the Knicks, who shot 50 percent (40-of-80) for the fifth time this season and improved to 20-19 with Sprewell in the lineup. "It gets to a point that you just want him to keep shooting," Houston said. "It was a special night to see him not miss. It's special to let every shot go with the flow, especially when you're in the zone like Spree was in tonight. You could see the Clippers faces drop every time they got close and Spree hit a couple of 3-pointers." Richardson led the Clippers with 19 points but just six after halftime. Elton Brand had 16 and 12 rebounds and rookie Marko Jaric chipped in 14 as Los Angeles dropped its fifth straight road game.
