Knicks, Pistons trying to end slumps

Nov 26, 2008 - 11:23 AM New York (7-7) at Detroit (8-5) 8:00 p.m. EST

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- A pair of new additions did not help the New York Knicks reverse their recent woes.

After suffering their fourth loss in five games, the Knicks look to bounce back on Wednesday when they visit the Detroit Pistons.

New York on Friday acquired Tim Thomas and Al Harrington from the Los Angeles Clippers and the Golden State Warriors, respectively, in moves that cleared more than $27 million in salary cap space in hopes of luring Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James to the "Mecca of basketball" when he is a free agent in the summer of 2010.

Thomas had 16 points and Harrington had 13 points in their debut, but it was not nearly enough as the Cavaliers throttled the Knicks, 119-101, on Tuesday in a game overshadowed by James.

The Pistons opened their four-game homestand Sunday with an ugly 106-80 setback to the lowly Minnesota Timberwolves, who have won two of their last three after an eight-game losing streak.

Detroit shot a season-low 37 percent (31-of-80) from the field against the Timberwolves en route to its second consecutive loss. The Pistons have not lost three in a row and last dropped three straight during a six-game slide from April 1-9.
