Knicks outlast Pistons in double overtime

Nov 29, 2010 - 1:50 AM Auburn Hills, MI (Sports Network) - Danilo Gallinari made two of New York's four three-pointers in the second overtime, as the Knicks snuck past the Detroit Pistons, 125-116, to claim their fifth straight road victory.

Gallinari ended with 20 points and nine rebounds for the Knicks, who have won five in a row on the road for the first time since the 2000-2001 campaign.

Amare Stoudemire added 37 points, 15 rebounds, and seven assists. Raymond Felton donated 23 points for New York, which got 20 points from Wilson Chandler.

"I think Amare was such a factor inside that they had to collapse on him. When they did that, we found the shooter open," Knicks head coach Mike D'Antoni said.

Detroit guard Richard Hamilton scored 17 points and became the sixth player in team history to score 11,000 points. Tayshaun Prince and Rodney Stuckey chipped in with 31 and 29 points, respectively, for the Pistons, who have lost five of seven.

Hamilton's trey and Prince's jumper gave the Pistons a 106-105 edge with 1:37 left in the first overtime. Stoudemire made a layup, and Landry Fields' tip-in around Hamilton's missed layup gave New York a 109-106 margin with 20.2 seconds remaining.

Prince recorded a three-point play at the other end to tie the game at 109 with 14.7 ticks to go. Chandler missed a shot from beyond the arc as time expired.

Gallinari made a pair of three-pointers to start the second overtime. Chandler hit another trey to give the Knicks a 118-109 edge with 2:36 to play.

After Prince made a hook shot, Fields made another three-pointer for New York, which made 4-of-4 free throws to seal the victory.

The Knicks held a 28-25 lead after 12 minutes of play, but the Pistons surged ahead in the second stanza to take a 55-53 edge into the locker room.

Detroit took a 78-75 margin into the fourth. New York, though, grabbed the lead early in the fourth.

Trailing by six, 97-91, late in regulation, the Pistons scored six straight points to tie the game. Prince's jumper and two free throws cut the gap to 97-95. Hamilton followed with two free throws to deadlock the score at 97 with 40.1 ticks to go.

Stoudemire made a pair of shots from the charity stripe at the other end to give New York a two-point lead. Prince, though, made a 17-foot jumper with 23.4 ticks remaining to tie the game again.

Gallinari missed a three-pointer to send the contest into overtime.

"We had to change some things up because they had a pretty small lineup and we had to make some adjustments," Pistons head coach John Kuester said. "I thought our guys did a good job of it. We kept our poise and made the game go into overtime."
