NDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 13 - Jamal Crawford walked away from Conseco Fieldhouse feeling woozy and battered, and such was the state of his team as the Knicks left the Midwest on Saturday night and wandered into a week that could wreck more than their bodies.

The Knicks lost the opener of a four-game trip, 103-97, to the Indiana Pacers and lost Crawford long before the game had been decided. Crawford left in the second quarter after snapping his neck in a collision with Indiana's Stephen Jackson.

Crawford was still feeling woozy hours later, and his status for the Knicks' game Tuesday at San Antonio was uncertain. A team spokesman said no tests were scheduled.
--
So an eight-day span that included a 34-point loss at home and the dismissal of an assistant coach, followed by two victories, ended with the Knicks again feeling besieged. Their best shooter, Allan Houston, is on the injured list, and his replacement is now a question mark.

And after Jermaine O'Neal worked them over for 33 points and 12 rebounds, there is little reason to believe the Knicks can contend with the gantlet of All-Star big men that awaits them next week in Texas. They get San Antonio's Tim Duncan on Tuesday, Houston's Yao Ming on Thursday and Dallas's Dirk Nowitzki and Erick Dampier on Friday.
--
A victory would have given them a winning record for the first time in nearly three years. Instead, they head to Texas for three games with the threat of an 0-4 trip looming.
--
He was cutting around a Kurt Thomas screen when he was whacked in the face by Jackson with 6:16 left in the first half. He tumbled awkwardly to the floor and lay there for a few minutes.

Quote:
"I was coming off a screen and Jackson got me," Crawford, too dizzy to meet with reporters, said through a Knick spokesman after the game.

"My neck snapped back. I don't think it hit the ground. I tried to stop it from hitting the ground, and that's how I hurt my neck."

Crawford went scoreless in 11 minutes, did not return, icing his neck on the bench in the second half, looking woozy.

He's unsure if he'll be able to play Tuesday.

He was injured. I'm not surprised that you would expect him to score from the bench or locker room. Meanwhile, the Bulls lose another one and become the only winless team in the NBA. ROFLMAO

My prediction of 62 losses this season, may come earlier than I anticipated. Losing to the Clippers? At Home? After having a 24 pt lead? LET THE EXCUSES BEGIN!

If you're going to gloat at our losing, at least get your facts right. New Orleans hasn't won yet either.

You may now resume your negativity.

I apologize, you're right on both accounts. New Orleans hasn't won either AND I have been gloating, and I shouldn't.

It really serves no purpose to dog Bulls fans for support their team. Heck, I was one of the hopeless Bulls fans for several years before Jordan and several years after. People used to rip me for supporting the Bulls and I would argue that we are building toward the future. I guess after a while the perpetual rebuilding and development draftees just to give them away to other teams has soured me to the point that I can no longer blindly support them. However that shouldn't cause me to ruin for the rest of you. I don't need to come here and tell you that the Bulls are bad again. I think their record shows that. I don't/won't need to come here and remind you that Crawford is playing well. The box scores will show that as well.

I am now turning over a new leaf. Out with the negativity and in with positivity. From now on, I wll try to only post positive comments and will refrain from venting my frustrations on this board. I think most of you will know that I am frustrated.

Peace

I apologize to Michael. I am frustrated with the team, and I should not take it out on you either!

Thanks, but no apology necessary. You're not the only one who has called me to the carpet about my negativity as of late. You just did it in manner that got through to me. I sincerely wish the Bulls and their fans the best. I hope the complement of players that they have today will be competitive in the future.

I think that Luol Deng will be a special player someday. As will Curry, just not with the Bulls. I hope I am wrong about that one. I hope he re-signs with the Bulls and acheives his true potential.

As most of you know, I'm not a fan of Crawdaddy. That said, I want to wish him the best in this injury situation and hope it is just a slight sprain and not anything more serious.

Parker had 18 points and a season-high nine assists, leading San Antonio to a 99-81 win over the New York Knicks on Tuesday night. The slick point guard, who signed a $66 million contract extension just before the season began, was held to four points or less and four assists in two of his previous three games.
--
The Knicks' starting five shot only 38 percent, but Marbury blamed the one-sided outcome on New York's inability to get back against the Spurs' running game.

``The transition defense was horrendous tonight,'' he said. ``You have to do it on both ends. Your offense can't create your defense -- your defense creates your offense.''
--
Jamal Crawford led the Knicks with 16 and Tim Thomas had 15, but together they made only 11 of 30 shots.

Nytimes take on the game:

Quote:
Jamal Crawford led the Knicks (2-4) with 16 points, but he scored just 5 in the second half and was 6 of 15 from the field.
--
Crawford had just worked out the last kinks in his neck from Saturday's tumble in Indiana, but the physical abuse began anew. The Spurs flipped their defensive assignments, sending the defensive pit bull Bowen after Crawford while Manu Ginóbili guarded small forward Tim Thomas.

Bowen is renowned as a defensive stopper, but also as a physical player whose style borders on wrestling. Crawford shot a couple of air balls, thought he drew contact and glanced at the referees, waiting for a whistle that never came. He attempted just two free throws in the game, and he was called for a technical foul for pushing over Bowen while running downcourt late in the fourth quarter.
http://nytimes.com/2004/11/17/sports.../17knicks.html


Quote:
...Jamal Crawford (15 points) scored just four second-half points. A spate of Knick third-quarter turnovers led to a series of Spurs' fastbreaks that broke open a close game in which the Knicks trailed by two points with 8:01 left in the third. In fact, the Knicks held the lead for the game's first 14 minutes.

"We weren't executing," said Marbury, who shot just 4 of 12 for 13 points, his mindset on distributing the ball.

"We weren't going all the way through our plays. I don't understand it, how you can break a play when you're scoring when you do run a play? We don't play to our third and fourth option."

Marbury said when one player breaks the play "it totally destroys the offense, whether I do it, Tim does it or Jamal does it."

if you watched the game you would know the guy who was running outside of the offense was tim thomas .

timmy would not pass the ball even if he was double teamed , anf that killed the knicks offense not JC's avg. night of 16 points ...and he did drive to the hoop last night , in fact one of his drives was on the nbatv's top 10 plays of the night, where he shook manu pretty badly and took it in for a layup.

Jamal Crawford banked in a 3-pointer at the buzzer to send the New York Knicks to their first road win of the season, 93-92 over the reeling Houston Rockets on Thursday night.

Crawford finished with 19 points, going 5-of-11 from the 3-point arc, and Kurt Thomas added 23 points and 14 rebounds to hand the Rockets their fourth loss in five games.

New York, which ends a four-game trip against Dallas on Friday, came back from an 11-point deficit to start the fourth quarter, getting plenty of clutch baskets from Crawford and Thomas down the stretch.
