MSG Gives Jamal Crawford Standing Ovation

Crawford got a standing ovation after a video tribute in the first quarter. Harrington got a Louis Vuitton gift bag from Jackson. The night ended with hugs all across the Garden court. But the reunion took a back seat to the fireworks on the scoreboard.

The Knicks and Warriors share the same philosophy — shoot first and play defense later, if at all — so the results were not surprising. The Knicks had 82 points at halftime, a record for the current Garden, which opened in 1968. The Knicks finished with their highest point total since April 6, 1996, a 139-106 victory in Toronto.

Duhon, whose previous career best in assists was 15, also broke the Garden record of 19, which was shared by Mark Jackson and Micheal Ray Richardson.
