Larry Brown finally got his first victory in six games as New York's coach, with rookie Channing Frye scoring 19 points in the Knicks' 105-95 win over the host Sacramento Kings last night.
Stephon Marbury had 17 points and seven assists for the Knicks, who jumped to a big early lead and hung on to halt their worst start in 18 years during Brown's first season in charge of his hometown team.
Brown's club won by making 54 percent of its shots. The Knicks wasted second-half leads in both of their last two games, and blew most of a 19-point lead in Sacramento, but hung on when the Kings couldn't capitalize on several chances to rally.
Peja Stojakovic scored 14 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter, but missed seven 3-pointers for the Kings, who are 2-5 start and were booed off the court after a first half in which New York led by 19 points.
Cavaliers 108, Magic 100 -- LeBron James became the youngest player in NBA history to reach 4,000 career points and finished with 26 to help Cleveland beat host Orlando in overtime.
James (20 years, 318 days) entered the game needing 10 points to pass Kobe Bryant (21 years, 216 days). After scoring on a jumper, two driving layups, and a dunk, James reached the milestone on a 21-footer with 58.7 seconds left in the first quarter.
Larry Hughes had 22 points for Cleveland, which has won four straight.
76ers 113, Clippers 108 -- Allen Iverson had 28 points and 10 assists, and Lee Nailon added 21 points as host Philadelphia won its fourth in a row.
Nuggets 102, Timberwolves 91 -- DerMarr Johnson scored 17 points in his first start of the season and Marcus Camby had 18 points and 22 rebounds to help host Denver tip Minnesota.
SuperSonics 126, Raptors 121 -- Rashard Lewis scored 41 points, and visiting Seattle blew an 18-point lead in the fourth quarter but recovered to beat winless Toronto.
