Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- The New York Knicks gave Herb Williams the kind of defensive effort that can make a coach smile. Stephon Marbury scored 21 points as the Knicks tied a season low for points allowed in a 90-79 victory over the Indiana Pacers, who had a season-high five-game winning streak stopped. Williams stressed defense as a significant weakness for the Knicks when he took over as coach after Lenny Wilkens resigned on January 22. Looking for their first winning streak since a three-game streak in the end of December, it looked like a vintage defensive night for the Knicks, who played several epic games against the Pacers in the mid-1990s. New York contested shots and dove for loose balls, resulting in its fourth straight home victory and third straight by more than 10 points. "More than anything else, the guys are playing with a lot more confidence," Williams said. "They believe in what they're doing. They're out there and they're together. Tonight, we played real good defense." "We've been battling and trying to play this way for a while," Knicks forward Jerome Williams said. "Guys are just continuing to dig their way out of a hole, continue to show fight. So I think that's what's given us a bit of a turnaround." Indicative of the defensive intensity were two key stands in the second and fourth quarters. New York held the Pacers to 13 points in the second quarter and without a basket in the final 5:48 of the first half. With the lead reduced to 73-66 with 9:17 left in the fourth, the Knicks reeled off an 11-2 run while holding the Pacers without a basket for 6:15. The burst was capped by a behind-the-back pass from Jamal Crawford to Tim Thomas for a one-handed dunk with 3:40 remaining. "It was big for us because not only did we get stops, we made baskets," Marbury said. "We are playing way better than we have been playing. Whenever you can go out and hold a team to 41 percent shooting, you are doing a good job." Crawford scored 17 points and Kurt Thomas added 16, including three straight mid-range jumpers late the opening period that put the Knicks ahead for good. The game also marked the New York debuts of Malik Rose and Maurice Taylor, who were acquired from San Antonio and Houston, respectively, at Thursday's trading deadline. Rose played just nine minutes but pulled down eight rebounds while Taylor saw just five minutes. For the Pacers, it was just their third loss in 11 games and a frustrating night as they shot 35 percent (16-of-46) over the final three quarters and were outrebounded, 43-32. All-Star Jermaine O'Neal scored 24 points but also had a frustrating game for the Pacers. He picked up a technical foul in the first quarter, got tangled up with Mike Sweetney in the third and bruised his ribs in the waning moments of the game after colliding with Marbury's right knee. "The X-rays are negative for a fracture," Indiana coach Rick Carlisle said of O'Neal. "He took a knee to the lower part of the rib cage and is pretty sore. He gets banged around a lot. He's pretty much in a constant state of some sort of ailment." "We didn't bring the same energy," O'Neal said. "Right now, we can't afford to lack energy. When teams beat us for loose balls, beat us on the second chance, rebounds and beat us all around, that puts you in a tough position." O'Neal also did not think the play was intentional and said Marbury apologized to him afterwards. In his penultimate game at Madison Square Garden, Reggie Miller finished with 14 points. Miller, who intends to retire at the end of the season, makes his final appearance in New York on April 5. "Obviously, I've had some great moments as well as some lowlights," Miller said. "One of the reasons, if not the biggest reason, is the rivalry between the two teams."
