Knicks seeking first win when they visit Kings

New York (0-5) at Sacramento (2-4), 9:00 pm EST

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- The New York Knicks will be hard-pressed to get coach Larry Brown his first win with the club when they visit the Sacramento Kings on Sunday.

The Hall of Fame coach was supposed to bring credibility to the floundering franchise, but the team is still looking for its first win of the new campaign. If the Knicks can win at Arco Arena on Sunday, it will be their first win here since 1997 - spanning eight games.

On Friday, New York dropped to 0-5 for the first time since 1987 when they dropped an 86-84 heartbreaker in Golden State. Stephon Marbury scored 22 points while the Knicks got 21 from Jamal Crawford, who turned the ball over in the waning seconds before getting a chance to take a game-tying shot.

A loss would give New York its worst start since 1985, when the club began that campaign 0-8.

Sacramento is coming off its first home win of the season, a 101-85 triumph over Denver on Friday. The Kings had six of the eight players who scored in double figures, led by 23 from Peja Stojakovic.

Sacramento won both meetings against New York last season, including the game here in which the Knicks blew an 11-point advantage in the final 3 1/2 minutes.
