Good luck Lenny!!

Seattle vs. New York

Jan 16, 2004

- Game begins at 7:30 PM ET


Seattle (19-17) at New York (16-24) 7:30 pm EST
----------------------------------------------------------------
NEW YORK (Ticker) -- Lenny Wilkens will make his debut as coach
of the New York Knicks on Friday when he faces one of his former
teams, the Seattle SuperSonics, at Madison Square Garden.

Wilkens, a Hall of Famer who has more wins and losses than any
coach in NBA history, will coach his sixth different team.
Wilkens, who last coached the Toronto Raptors, owns a career
record of 1,292-1,114 and won the 1979 championship with
Seattle, where he makes his home.

Wilkens guided the Raptors to the only two playoff appearances
in franchise history. Last season, his injury-riddled team went
24-58 and lost its last eight games.

"Midseason adjustments are never easy, especially on offense,"
Wilkens said. "They will have to be made quickly. We have six
games in the next nine days, so there aren't many practices."

Don Chaney was fired Wednesday and Herb Williams coaches the
Knicks in a 120-110 victory over Orlando on Wednesday. Stephon
Marbury had 26 points and 10 assists and Keith Van Horn added 22
points and 10 rebounds.

Marbury is averaging 18.4 points and 10.6 assists through his
first five games with New York. The Knicks are just 2-3 in that
span.

Seattle is opening a four-game road trip after consecutive
losses to Golden State and Cleveland. Ray Allen scored 25 points
and Calvin Booth blocked a career-high 10 shots in only 17
minutes.

The SuperSonics have split 16 road games and are just 6-9
against Eastern Conference foes.

Vladimir Radmanovic scored 21 points as Seattle posted a 95-87
victory over New York on December 3. The Knicks have won five
straight at home against the SuperSonics.

Looking for Marbury to get his fifth straight game with 10 assist. Possibly another high scoring game with the Sonics since they shoot alot of three's.

Yeah Marbury will Break a Knicks record or something if he gets 10 assists again right?

I'm not sure Starbury03. I thought I did hear something about one more game would break a record or something. I could be wrong though.

Good 1st quarter. Offense is clicking. 34-26. Need to do a better job of not giving Ray Allen so many open looks though.

This game is just blowout city at this point. 86-61 Knicks with the third quarter finished. I'd cherish Van Horn's 10-15 shooting, because I don't see that happening again anytime soon :grinning:

Actually Van Horn has been pretty hot lately MJG. He has put up 20 points or more almost every game the last 2 weeks
Well we gonna win this one for sure. Marbury 17 assists!!! A memorable debut for coach Wilkens. And it was beautiful to see Marbury and Van Horn sitting next to each other chatting and smiling on the bench.

Oh yea, I was talking more about the shooting percentage as opposed to the points. Though I do admit to not following his box scores too much, so has he really been shooting this well? Certainly would be nice to see him finally put his skills together and be able to play this well consistently.

yeah 10-15 is a hot night for sure, he has been around 45 percent and shooting well all year. He still has the turnover struggles though.
