Larry Hughes scored 21 points, David Lee had 17 points and 10 rebounds, and host New York beat injury-depleted Portland last night, 93-84, for the Knicks' season-high third straight victory. Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler each added 14 points as the Knicks won for the fourth time in five games, continuing to play better after coach Mike D'Antoni shortened his rotation and has found a group willing to defend. Brandon Roy scored 27 points and LaMarcus Aldridge had 19 points and 13 rebounds for the hobbling Trail Blazers.

CARMELO ANTHONY scored 22 of his 30 points in the first quarter, and the New York Knicks held on after he departed with a sprained left ankle to beat the visiting Los Angeles Lakers, 116-107, on Thursday night in coach Mike D'Antoni's return to Madison Square Garden. Firing in three-pointers and moving the ball to open shooters, things they often struggled to do under D'Antoni, the Knicks won for the eighth time in nine games and improved to 9-0 at home for the first time since the 1992-93 season.

Besides being the NBA's hottest team, the Portland Trail Blazers have added incentive when they host the 76ers (13-16) at 6 tonight at the Rose Garden. The Trail Blazers (17-12) have won 12 consecutive games, including nine at home. That would be enough incentive for any team to keep firing, but the Blazers also are attempting to avenge a 92-88 loss in Philadelphia on Nov. 16. In that game, Portland squandered a 25-point lead in the second quarter. "I was bothered by our defense, and we allowed them to drive to the basket, and we kind of panicked," Portland coach Nate McMillan said yesterday in a phone conversation.

IN THE Three Dog Night song, one is the loneliest number that you'll ever do and two can be as bad as one. Not to Doug Collins. Two is one of the best numbers he's seen all of this short season. For the first time under Collins' tutelage, the Sixers have won consecutive games, last night downing the Portland Trail Blazers at the Wells Fargo Center, 88-79. On a night when the home team made just 19 of 49 shots in the final three quarters, Andre Iguodala was limited to just four shots and rookie Evan Turner again struggled with just one point, the team found a way to win because of its stubbornness on the defensive end. Portland was able to make just four of 20 shots from the floor in an 11-point fourth quarter as the Sixers won for the first time this season by single digits.

In the third quarter of last night's 98-90 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers, 76ers forward Thaddeus Young, one of his team's highest risers, rose for a tomahawk slam. The dish, in transition, came from Lou Williams; the uncontested dunk would have given his team a 52-51 lead. Young missed. A few seconds later, the Blazers scored. There were a hundred plays after this one, but one couldn't help but think, as the groan rose from those gathered inside the Wachovia Center, that the moment perfectly reflected the game and the team's entire first half of the season.

Samuel Dalembert had tears in his eyes talking about the devastation he witnessed, up close, in earthquake-ravaged Haiti. The 76ers center, who spent a whirlwind 24 hours getting into and out of his native country, landed at Philadelphia International Airport less than an hour before the Sixers' game last night against Portland at the Wachovia Center. On no sleep, Dalembert scored 10 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in a 98-90 loss. He fouled out with 1 minute, 18 seconds remaining.

Allen Iverson is back and he brought with him a victory. Last night, inside a sold-out Rose Garden against the very tough Portland Trail Blazers, Iverson started at shooting guard for the 76ers after missing the previous four games with arthritis in his left knee. Quite unlike recent games, the Sixers played well in the fourth quarter, and defeated the Trail Blazers, 104-93. Sixers reserve power forward Elton Brand finished with 25 points and nine rebounds. The Sixers improved to 8-22.

Kevin Durant scored a season-high 37 points and fellow rookie Jeff Green had a season-high 35, leading Seattle to a 151-147 double-overtime victory over visiting Denver last night, damaging the Nuggets' playoff hopes. Green, whose previous high was 23 points, scored 24 in the second half and overtime. His five quick points to start the second overtime gave the draft lottery-bound Sonics (18-59) the winning cushion. Durant was coming off his worst shooting night of the season, going 2-for-17 to finish with four points in a loss to Houston on Friday night.

  INDIANAPOLIS - Chicago's fans traveled to Indiana by the thousands, planning to celebrate a first-round playoff victory at Conseco Fieldhouse. The Pacers sent them home disappointed, holding off a furious rally to beat the Bulls, 89-84, on Saturday afternoon for their first playoff win since 2006. Chicago's Carlos Boozer missed a three-point attempt that could have tied the game with a second remaining. The Bulls still lead the series, 3-1, and will have a chance to close it out at home Tuesday.

Approaching game's end, the 76ers ignored the scoreboard. Those flashing numbers showed too big a lead, with too little time left, and those numbers could have tricked them into thinking the game was already won. The Sixers have felt that pain before. Which could be why in the final minutes of Tuesday night's 88-79 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers, the Sixers defended as if it were tied, executed on offense as if they were trailing, and called time-outs as if they needed a strategic overhaul.

At what should have been the finish line was a bend in the road. After 20 quarters of basketball, after seven days on the road, after five games, the regulation buzzer sounded . . . and the 76ers had to play overtime. It took an extra period last night, but the Sixers beat the Portland Trail Blazers, 114-108. The game was decided when the Sixers' defense shut down successive drives by Brandon Roy in overtime. The Sixers extended their lead on a dunk by Andre Iguodala and a tip-in by Thaddeus Young.
