Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) - After Patrick Ewing's retirement ceremony ran long, former teammate Latrell Sprewell put his long range game to good use for the New York Knicks. Sprewell nailed four 3-pointers and scored 18 points in the final 10 minutes en route to his second career triple-double as the Knicks outlasted the Orlando Magic, 118-110, in double overtime. The night was reserved for Ewing, one of the NBA's 50 Greatest Players, and the 7-foot center saw his No. 33 jersey raised to the rafters in Madison Square Garden. He became the eighth Knick to be honored with plenty of NBA greats - past and present - on hand. Sprewell helped steal some of Ewing's spotlight with 28 points, a season-high 11 assists and 11 rebounds, helping New York to its second win in its last seven games. Still, the sellout crowd was vocal throughout in cheering for Ewing, whom many believe is the best player in franchise history. "It was Patrick's night," said Sprewell, a teammate of Ewing's for two seasons. "I was just glad to be able to experience it. That was very special." Ewing's former teammates on hand for the 45-minute halftime ceremony included Charles Oakley, John Starks and Magic coach Doc Rivers. Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley and fellow Georgetown alumni Dikembe Mutombo and Alonzo Mourning also took part in the festivities, as did former Knicks Willis Reed, Walt Frazier and Earl Monroe. Reed and Mourning each gave short speeches about Ewing, who then took the microphone himself. Ewing, known for his surliness to the New York media, used no notes as he thanked the fans, teammates, coaches and everybody else in an emotional speech. "I'll always be a New Yorker," Ewing said. "It couldn't have gone any better," Rivers said. "It was nice to see him give so much emotion to the crowd." Sprewell shook off 3-of-14 shooting in regulation to help rally New York from a 103-97 deficit in the first overtime. He nailed back-to-back 3-pointers to tie the game and scored all eight of the team's OT points. "We had to climb out of a little hole," Sprewell said. "I was able to hit a couple of threes in the first overtime to tie the game." After Orlando rookie Gordan Giricek opened the second overtime with a basket, Sprewell again connected on consecutive 3-pointers to give New York the lead for good. He added a jumper on the baseline with 60 seconds left for a 111-107 advantage. Othella Harrington, another Georgetown alumnus, and Howard Eisley each scored 21 points as New York placed six players in double figures. Clarence Weatherspoon added 15 points and a career-high 24 rebounds as the Knicks enjoyed a 61-48 cushion on the glass. Allan Houston helped rally New York in the fourth quarter and finished with 19 points. Houston and the Knicks all wore "33" jerseys during the halftime show, and the team's captain presented Ewing with the keys to a new Hummer. "It was a lot of fun," Houston said. "It's almost a relief it was over. It was amazing actually seeing that many great players." Orlando had a four-game winning streak snapped and suffered its first loss since the acquisitions of Giricek and fellow rookie Drew Gooden. Tracy McGrady scored 24 of his 34 points after halftime and handed out 13 assists. "You have to be mentally strong to get through games like this," McGrady said. Giricek and Gooden each netted 20 points and Gooden also grabbed 18 rebounds. Pat Garrity drilled five 3-pointers and scored 19 points. Ewing was cheered throughout and had a courtside seat next to Jordan, who eliminated the Knicks five times in the playoffs. After Houston made two free throws for a 114-107 advantage with 23 seconds left, Ewing exited to a final round of applause. "It was an honor for me to be here," Houston said. "I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for Patrick."
