Knicks have time on their side and beat Bucks, 95-93

February 24, 2007|From the Associated Press

NEW YORK — Channing Frye made two free throws after a video review put 0.8 of a second back on the clock, and the New York Knicks defeated Milwaukee, 95-93, on Friday night, handing the Bucks their season-high seventh consecutive loss.

The Knicks overcame 23 turnovers and a quiet night from Eddy Curry, their leading scorer, by capitalizing on a second chance after they seemed headed to overtime.

Stephon Marbury was short on a jumper as time was running out, but the officials called a loose-ball foul on Bucks center Andrew Bogut.

After reviewing video of the play, the officials found the foul came with time remaining, and Frye made both free throws. Milwaukee couldn't get a shot off after a timeout.

Marbury and Jamal Crawford each scored 22 points for the Knicks; Curry had 10 points.

Mo Williams had 28 points and 10 assists for Milwaukee, but the Bucks came up short, dropping their 11th in a row on the road and losing for the 22nd time in their last 25.

New York kept pace with ninth-place New Jersey and gained on idle Miami, which holds the eighth and final playoff spot.
