SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Larry Brown and the New York Knicks
hope to gain some momentum from their first win of the season
when they meet the Utah Jazz on Monday.
After dropping five straight decisions to open the campaign,
Brown's Knicks posted a 105-95 triumph over the Sacramento Kings
on Sunday to notch their first victory of the young season.
Rookie Channing Frye scored 19 points off the bench and Stephon
Marbury added 17 and seven assists as New York staved off a
furious fourth-quarter comeback attempt.
The Jazz return to the Delta Center after a 2-2 road trip.
Utah made a valiant rally in the second half Saturday before
dropping a 103-98 decision to the Chicago Bulls.
Mehmet Okur continued his torrid season-opening pace, scoring 33
points and grabbing 17 rebounds for the Jazz.
Utah will probably have to play Monday's game without star
forward Andrei Kirilenko, who sprained his ankle in the first
quarter Saturday and is expected to miss at least two weeks.
