Knicks seek season-high fourth straight victory vs. Bobcats

Jan 12, 2007 - 2:55 PM Charlotte (10-23) at New York (16-21) 7:30 pm EST

NEW YORK (Ticker) - Perhaps last month's brawl with the Denver Nuggets had a positive effect on the New York Knicks after all.

The Knicks can set a season high with their fourth consecutive victory and move closer to first place in the Atlantic Division with Friday's matchup against the Charlotte Bobcats.

New York fell to 9-17 after a 123-100 loss to the Nuggets in a game that led to suspensions of Nate Robinson, Mardy Collins, Jared Jeffries and Jerome James for their roles in the brawl.

However, the Knicks are 7-4 since the incident and are just one game behind the New Jersey Nets for the top spot in the division race despite being five games below .500.

New York is coming off Wednesday's 106-99 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers. Stephon Marbury scored 24 points, Eddy Curry added 20 with 10 rebounds and Quentin Richardson 19 in his return after missing 11 with back spasms.

The Bobcats have lost two of their first three games in January and will look to post back-to-back road victories for the first time this season. They are just 4-12 away from home.

Charlotte is coming off Wednesday's 103-96 triumph over the Detroit Pistons. Raymond Felton scored 18 points, Matt Carroll added 17 and rookie Adam Morrison 16 for the Bobcats, who placed six players in double figures.

The teams have a tough act to follow after their last encounter, a 111-109 victory for the Knicks in double overtime on December 20. Channing Frye scored 30 points and Curry had 29 for New York.
