New York Knicks Getting Inside 2009-03-13

New York Knicks Getting Inside 2009-03-13
Since the economic freefall is taking a toll on the business of basketball, it's doubly important for the Knicks to keep themselves relevant as long as possible. Staying in the playoff hunt will make it a little easier to sell tickets at Madison Square Garden.

The marketing folks are cheering every win.

Phones will ring if the Knicks somehow find a way to win another game on this road trip. They've already found success in Milwaukee and Detroit and will close out the Midwestern swing against Minnesota and Cleveland.

While the Knicks rank seventh in the league in attendance, drawing 19,194 per game, the organization has had to get creative. Fans have been able to purchase a David Lee Double-Double, which includes two tickets and two meals for $42. They've also been offered a Nate Robinson Fan Pack, which includes four tickets, four meals and four gifts for $99.

Players have also been asked to help sell. They often greet sponsors or season-ticket holders on the court before each home game. They are made available to meet and greet other subscribers during special events at the practice facility, too.

KNICKS 116, PISTONS 111 (OT): Another rally fueled by improved effort on the defensive end helped the Knicks win two straight on the road for the first time in three months. They also moved within 1 1/2 games of eighth place.

Of course, they are still in 13th place.

"It looked like we had no hope, but now we have a little hope," Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni said. "We just have to keep up this intensity and keep playing this way."

Larry Hughes was fouled by Richard Hamilton with 10 seconds to go and made three free throws, knotting the score 101-101. Detroit went inside to Antonio McDyess for the win as time expired, but he never controlled the ball.

In overtime, the defense continued to clamp down and Hughes scored five points to get the Knicks in front 110-105 with a minute to go, and they finished up without any incidents.
