Knicks, Trail Blazers seek to end losing streaks

Jan 3, 2007 - 4:28 PM New York (13-21) at Portland (13-19) 10:00 pm EST

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- The New York Knicks and Portland Trail Blazers seek to snap three-game losing streaks when the teams meet on Wednesday.

This is the fourth leg of the Knicks' five-game road trip. Jamal Crawford scored 28 points in New York's 112-100 loss at Sacramento on Tuesday.

The Knicks continue to get a major boost from second-year forward David Lee, who has collected a double-double in seven of his last nine games.

Trail Blazers star Zach Randolph scored just nine points in an 89-81 loss to Boston on Monday.

Rookie Brandon Roy, the sixth overall pick in the draft, has been impressive since returning from a nagging heel injury on December 20. Roy is averaging 14.6 points in his last six contests for Portland.

The Knicks have not won at the Rose Garden since March 26, 2000, spanning six consecutive meetings.
