Knicks romp by Warriors
NEW YORK Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni glanced at the best stat line of David Lee's career and somehow managed to sound disappointed.

"He should've had 50," D'Antoni said. "He should've had 50 and 28."

Chris Duhon had a franchise-record 22 assists, Lee had career highs of 37 points and 21 rebounds, and New York rang up a record-setting 82 points in the first half in a 138-125 victory over Golden State on Saturday night.

Lee had the first 30-20 game in regulation since Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing had 36 points and 21 rebounds against Philadelphia on Jan. 23, 1994.

"They had 82 points at half, so that's a lot," said Warriors guard and former Knick Jamal Crawford. "Some teams don't get that in a game. We had to do a better job defensively and work on our schemes a little bit more."

Al Harrington, traded from the Warriors to the Knicks last week, added 36 points and 12 rebounds.

Crawford, sent to Golden State for Harrington, had 21 points and 10 rebounds.

Corey Maggette led the Warriors with 32 points and 12 boards. C.J. Watson scored 23 points.

The Warriors played without leading scorer Stephen Jackson, who aggravated a sprained left wrist in a loss Friday at Cleveland. They completed their first 0-5 road trip since Dec. 31-Jan. 7 of the 2003-04 season.

D'Antoni and Nelson are known for their offensive schemes, but neither run teams that do much defending. Golden State came in surrendering 107.3 points per game, better only than the Knicks and their 107.7 average.

The Warriors were way worse on this night.

The Knicks made 16 of 25 shots (64 percent) in the first quarter, opening a 39-33 lead behind 12 points from Lee and 10 from Chandler. New York blew it open late in the second and was never really challenged again, nailing a couple of 3-pointers after Golden State trimmed the deficit to 12 late in the third quarter and pushing the lead to 116-96 heading to the fourth.

Notes:@ Knicks guard Stephon Marbury was not at MSG, suspended by the Knicks on Friday after the team said he refused to play in a loss at Detroit on Wednesday. Team president Donnie Walsh said before the game he plans to meet with the Marbury and his representation from the players' association Monday in hopes of finding a solution to the latest controversy with the point guard. ... The Knicks had 43 points in the second quarter, also a record at the present MSG.
