Felton, unbeaten Knicks rally past Spurs 104-100
Question of the Day
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Instead of watching their season-opening winning streak come to a messy end, the New York Knicks served notice that they can’t be counted out in the fourth quarter.
Trailing by 12 with 7 minutes left in the game, the Knicks (6-0) closed on a 22-11 run to remain the NBA’s only unbeaten team.
“It shows me that this team is for real,” New York coach Mike Woodson said. “We beat a great team tonight — a well-coached team. It’s the first time I’ve ever won in San Antonio, so I feel pretty good about that. It’s tough to win here.”
San Antonio grabbed its largest lead at 89-77 with 7:14 remaining when Tiago Splitter’s free throw completed a three-point play. That capped a 13-point run by Splitter in the fourth after he failed to score while playing just a few minutes through the first three periods.
“He had some great minutes in there,” Duncan said. “He got himself rolling there for a little while and kind of got us on the board.”
“I called one timeout, and it was kind of disarray in the timeout,” Woodson said. “I was screaming and they were screaming, but we were still in the game.”
“He does it every single time,” Chandler said. “I said it last game, whether it is a steal or a 3-pointer or something (else), he seems to always get it done.”
San Antonio missed seven of its last nine shots and had two turnovers in the final 2 minutes. The Spurs had won 18 of 19 regular-season games against New York.
The late defensive push offset an uncharacteristic start by the Knicks.
