No questioning the Knicks' effort on this night. Jamal Crawford made the go-ahead basket with 28 seconds left, and New York erased a 17-point deficit last night to beat the visiting Milwaukee Bucks, 91-88. One night after they were accused of quitting during a 104-59 loss in Boston, the Knicks surged back in the fourth quarter to win for the third time in four games. Crawford and Zach Randolph led New York with 25 points apiece. Fred Jones provided a huge spark by scoring all of his 10 in the fourth quarter in place of Stephon Marbury, who had 13 points but left midway through the third quarter with a right shoulder muscle spasm.

The Toronto Raptors didn't have to wait long for another shot at Washington, and they certainly took advantage of it. Andrea Bargnani scored 19 points, Chris Bosh had 16 and Toronto used a big second quarter and a flurry of three-pointers to beat the visiting Wizards last night, 122-83. The 39-point margin of victory matched the biggest in team history, a 112-73 win over Atlanta on April 12, 2002. "They blew us out of the water," Washington guard DeShawn Stevenson said.

Vince Carter had a season-high 39 points and 10 assists to lead the host New Jersey Nets to a 125-117 victory over the Atlanta Hawks last night. Both the Nets and Hawks are 29-39 and five games behind the Sixers, who hold the No. 7 playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The Nets won the season series with Atlanta, 3-1, which means they would win the tiebreaker for the No. 8 spot if the playoffs started today. In other games: At Cleveland, LeBron James scored 30 points, moving closer to becoming the Cavaliers' top career scorer in an 87-73 victory over Detroit.

There were nights early in the season when the Raptors' Rasho Nesterovic didn't play at all. Rather than sulk postgame, the veteran center would head upstairs to the practice gym and run. Now, with All-Star forward Chris Bosh sidelined with a knee injury, that perseverance is paying off for Nesterovic. Nesterovic scored 17 points and led host Toronto to a 114-106 win over Seattle yesterday, the Raptors' fifth consecutive game without Bosh. "Rasho is a pro," Raptors coach Sam Mitchell said.

Paul Pierce scored nine of his season-high 39 points in overtime and the Boston Celtics beat the visiting Toronto Raptors for the second consecutive day, 115-109, last night. One day after Ray Allen's 36 points led Boston to a 94-88 win in Toronto, Pierce led a comeback from a 10-point deficit midway through the third quarter and carried the Celtics to their second straight win after they lost four in a row. Pierce also had nine rebounds, while Kevin Garnett added 20 points and 12 rebounds.

With the Toronto Raptors leaping up to grab the top pick in next month's NBA draft, the summer just got a lot more interesting. If the Chicago Bulls or Atlanta Hawks had gotten the first pick, they almost certainly would have taken Louisiana State forward Tyrus Thomas or Texas big man LaMarcus Aldridge. But the Raptors already have two young, promising frontcourt players in all-star Chris Bosh and rising sophomore Charlie Villaneuva. Toronto is a blank slate. New general manager Bryan Colangelo has cap room (more than $14 million)

Kobe Bryant wasn't feeling well, and it showed. Mike Bibby scored 21 points, including an improbable three-pointer off the top of the backboard, and the Atlanta Hawks took advantage by beating the visiting Los Angeles Lakers, 86-76, yesterday. The Hawks led nearly the entire way, bouncing back from consecutive home losses to two other elite teams, San Antonio and defending NBA champion Boston. The Lakers had won five straight, locking up the top seed in the Western Conference, but an ailing Bryant had just 17 points on 7-of-19 shooting.

TORONTO - Thaddeus Young, Jrue Holiday, and Nick Young scored 16 points apiece and the 76ers beat Toronto, 93-83, on Saturday night, their fifth victory in six meetings with the Raptors. Spencer Hawes had 12 points and 11 rebounds, Dorell Wright added 15 points and the Sixers won their third straight, with all three victories on the road. It's the first time the 76ers have done that since February 2003. The Sixers, who won, 106-100, at Boston on Friday night, knocked off another Atlantic Division opponent thanks to a huge second quarter that saw them turn a six-point deficit into a 19-point lead.

Asked this week whether the 76ers were trying to move up in Thursday night's NBA draft, Sixers president Rod Thorn said that while he has spent a lot of time on the phone, he doesn't expect to make such a move. Forward Andre Iguodala, as usual, has been mentioned more than any other Sixer as the player who might be moved. With three picks in the first 35, including the seventh overall, Golden State still is believed to be interested in a starting small forward. Iguodala's name came up in connection with the Warriors shortly after the Sixers were knocked out of the playoffs, but little has been said about that recently.

If Sam Hinkie were still the basketball brains of the 76ers, we would know exactly what to make of the current general manager's statement on Tuesday night that the team would almost certainly keep and use the first selection in the upcoming draft. Nothing. That's what we could make of it. For one thing, Hinkie never would have said such a thing. He would have said the pick is a valuable asset, the only one of its kind in this draft, and, because it would take a while to determine the actual market value of that asset, the Sixers had no intention of rushing into a decision.

CHICAGO - The Toronto Raptors haven't forgotten the job Bryan Colangelo did as their president of basketball operations and general manager. That's why they attribute their being the Eastern Conference's second seed in the NBA playoffs to the moves Colangelo made several years ago. "He got most of the core guys together," said reserve swingman Terrence Ross. "So he had a vision. " But the Raptors are quick to point out that their former boss is more than just a dreamer. They used words such as hard working, personable, excellent basketball person, forward-thinking and business-like to describe the 76ers' new president of basketball operations.

There are some who won't allow themselves to admit this, and it's understandable. The sudden resignation of Sam Hinkie as the 76ers' general manager and president of basketball operations Wednesday evening is too fresh in their minds. So those who have supported Hinkie's extended plan of tanking and acquiring assets are upset that he didn't (or chose not to) get a chance to see things through. They're also upset that the person who will replace him is Bryan Colangelo, the son of the Sixers' chairman of basketball operations, Jerry Colangelo.

IT'S A GOOD thing 76ers coach Doug Collins is a fan of solving crossword puzzles because the way his team is built, many of the games they play are quite cryptic. Some nights, the shooting is good, other nights horrendous. Rebounding always seems to be an adventure and after a stretch of giving the ball over quite frequently to the opponent earlier in the season, now the Sixers have become quite stingy. Tuesday at the Wells Fargo Center against the Toronto Raptors, the Sixers, for much of the night, seemed allergic to rebounding the basketball.

Former 76er Lou Williams scored 10 of his 19 points during Atlanta's decisive fourth-quarter surge; Al Horford had 23 points and 12 rebounds; and the Hawks beat the Thunder, 104-95, on Sunday night in Oklahoma City. Williams, who was let go by the Sixers despite leading them in scoring last season, hit a three-pointer, a 24-foot jumper, and converted a three-point play off a driving scoop in the lane during a 12-4 push midway through the fourth quarter that put the Hawks in front to stay.
