Knicks Lose At the Buzzer to Blazers

TRAIL BLAZERS 109
KNICKS 108

As if this past week was not enough of a nightmare for the Knicks. Leading 108-105 with only 0:31.9 seconds left in their game against the Portland Trail Blazers the Knicks watched as Travis Outlaw and Brandon Roy ripped out the Knicks heart out on Sunday night.

First Outlaw drilled a 13 foot jumper to cut the Knicks lead to 108-107, forcing New York to call a timeout and make some key substitutions.

But, that was not enough, with just 0:00.1 of a second to go, Roy squeezed through the Knicks defense for the lay up and the win. He got the points, and no foul was called.

It was a long effort lost for the Knicks. They were trailing 36-27 through one quarter, before storming back in the next two quarters to tie the game at 82.

David Lee had a huge night for New York. Lee had 29 points and 11 rebounds on the night, but he can't do it alone. STATS.

Roy had 19 points for Portland, while Greg Oden had 17 points and 12 boards and Outlaw added 23 points off of the bench for the Trail Blazers.

New York continues to sink in the Eastern Confernce, dropping to 21-29 overall.
