Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- Stephon Marbury helped Lenny Wilkens earn a measure of revenge against the Toronto Raptors. Marbury poured in 24 of his 28 points after halftime to go with 14 assists as the New York Knicks won their fourth straight game, a 90-79 victory over the Raptors. Wilkens, the NBA's all-time winningest coach, was fired after a 24-58 campaign with Toronto last season. One of his critics was Raptors superstar Vince Carter, who missed his second straight game with a right quadriceps strain. "It's different when you move from one situation to another," said Wilkens, who downplayed the matchup. "I don't pay attention to the past." After a quiet first half, Marbury helped jump-start the offense by making 9-of-16 shots after intermission. He scored 13 points in the third quarter and 11 more over the final 12 minutes, picking up the slack for scorers Keith Van Horn and Allan Houston. "Keith and Allan weren't having their normal All-Star performances," Marbury said. "I took it upon myself in the second half to push the issue." The Knicks used a 13-0 run bridging the third and fourth quarters to take command. Marbury scored six points and Houston's 3-pointer capped it for a 75-61 cushion with just over 10 minutes left. Toronto had some rough stretches without Carter, shooting 23 percent (5-of-22) in a 12-point second quarter. The Raptors were also held scoreless for more than 5 1/2 minutes during the Knicks' decisive run. "We're building some momentum," Marbury said. "The reason why is because of our defense. We're stopping people when it counts." Toronto closed to 84-78 on Morris Peterson's three-point play with 1:43 to go. Marbury answered by feeding Kurt Thomas for a basket and sinking two foul shots to seal it. "Stephon was great," Knicks swingman Penny Hardaway said. "Normally he's dishing the ball around. He took over the game for us and finished it." Houston netted 17 points and Thomas chipped in 16 for New York, which also got a big effort from its bench. The Knicks' reserves outscored the Raptors backups, 25-6. Jalen Rose scored 22 points and Donyell Marshall added 21 to lead Toronto, which dropped its second straight game without Carter. The Raptors are 6-35 in the last two seasons without their leading scorer. "When we're short anybody at all, it's going to be difficult for us to win a basketball game," said Raptors coach Kevin O'Neill, a former Knicks assistant. "The Knicks played well today and they deserved to win." Toronto has dropped six straight visits to Madison Square Garden.
