Toasted in Texas, the New York Knicks fixed things on their home floor. Now it's right back on the road - or subway - for the first chance to claim city supremacy. Carmelo Anthony scored 29 points in just 32 minutes, and the Knicks ended a two-game losing streak with a 121-100 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Sunday. Steve Novak added a season-high 18 and JR Smith had 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Knicks, who started 8-1 and had the Eastern Conference's best record before a couple of defenseless performances in Texas spanning the Thanksgiving holiday.

DALLAS - K.J. McDaniels wasn't with his new team in Dallas, but he will be soon enough. The 6-foot-6, 205-pound swingman was dealt from the 76ers to the Houston Rockets at Thursday's trade deadline for Isaiah Canaan and a second- round pick. Houston was playing in Dallas on Friday against the Mavericks and will return home Saturday to host the Toronto Raptors. "He is in Houston now and we will see him tomorrow," Rockets coach Kevin McHale said after Friday morning's shootaround.

Kevin McHale is one of those guys who isn't allowed to say three-pointer, much less shoot one, but he was all the Boston Celtics had last night against the Detriot Pistons. And, depending on one's vantage point and one's loyalties, McHale was enough. When McHale went up for a shot somewhere on or near the three-point line last night with the first overtime rushing on an end, the logical conclusion was that the Celtics were done for. But several minutes later, well into the second overtime, Dennis Johnson steered the Celtics to a 119-115 victory and threw the Eastern Conference finals into a 1-1 deadlock.

What if Saturday night's 111-104 victory over Washington at the Spectrum in the final game of Charles Barkley's eighth NBA season also was his last stand as a Sixer? "If it was, it was," Barkley said. "I don't have to defend what I've done. My record speaks for itself. I've accomplished a lot in my career, except winning a championship. Not necessarily winning, but having an opportunity to win. "Blame the team, don't blame me. I'm not going to take any blame for us losing . . . maybe a minimal part.

Larry Bird set a Boston playoff record with 24 points in the first quarter, and the Celtics held off a late rally by the Atlanta Hawks for a 110-101 victory last night in the opener of their second-round playoff series. Bird led all scorers with 38 points and broke Dave Cowens' 14-year-old team record of 20 points in one quarter of a playoff game. Atlanta lost its 13th consecutive game in Boston Garden, where the second game of the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal is scheduled for tomorrow night.

Houston center Omer Asik has formally asked his team to trade him in the wake of the club's landing free-agent center Dwight Howard, sources told ESPN.com., but the Rockets have no plans to move him. With the Rockets adding the 6-foot-11 Howard, Asik is reported to be unhappy about the prospect of his playing time decreasing. Asik started all 82 games for the Rockets last season, averaging 10.1 points, 11.7 rebounds and 1.1 blocks. Shortly after Howard announced his decision, Asik made his trade request.

Boston coach K.C. Jones, indicating that his Celtics faced an uphill battle after losing the opening game of the NBA finals, referred to the Los Angeles Lakers as Mount Everest. And after the Celtics fell, 141-122, to those Lakers in Game 2 on Thursday night, Jones was asked how Mount Everest looked then. "It looks even bigger," he said. Tomorrow's Game 3 - as well as Game 4 and, if necessary, Game 5 - will take place in that June steam bath known as Boston Garden, but so far in this series, the Celtics' mystique has been overshadowed by the Lakers' irrepressible fastbreak.

The 76ers' forgiving early-season schedule comes to an official end this weekend, with the team playing on the road against the Boston Celtics tonight (Channel 17, 7:30) and the Detroit Pistons tomorrow night. This short and demanding trip begins a stretch during which the Sixers will play 10 of 14 games on the road. At 12-6, the Sixers are tied for first place in the Atlantic Division with New York. For that, they can thank their 10-2 record at home. Winning away from home is a problem in the NBA. Last season, the Sixers were 27-14 at the Spectrum but 9-32 on the road, where they lost 20 consecutive games in one stretch.

If Dominique Wilkins is the NBA's "Human Highlight Film," Kevin McHale is the league's chief film editor. Charged with guarding the NBA scoring champion yesterday, McHale deleted every highlight of Wilkins's game and inserted a few of his own as the Boston Celtics crushed the visiting Atlanta Hawks, 103-91, in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series. The victory was No. 34 in a row at home for the Celtics, an NBA record. The 1949-50 Minneapolis Lakers had won 33 straight at home.

Not quite 30 seconds into a conference call discussing the death of Eddie Griffin, Kevin McHale's voice began to crack from emotion. For the next 15 minutes, McHale, the Minnesota Timberwolves' vice president of basketball operations, spoke of Griffin with the despair one feels over the loss of someone who could not be reached, or saved. "I had no idea how much I was pulling for him until it hit me yesterday," McHale said of Griffin, 25, who was killed in a fiery collision with a train Friday in Houston.

Away from the pulsating court, where the purple and gold streamers still descend like shimmering rain after a win and where the spotlights can blanch the wrinkles that crease their teamwork, the Los Angeles Lakers press forward under the staggering weight of their own ability. The defending champions, who will host the 76ers tonight in a game at the Staples Center that could be - well, it could - a preview of the NBA Finals, are occasionally struggling with the task of repeating their success.

Youth was almost wasted on the young last night as the upstart Charlotte Hornets blew an 18-point lead in the fourth quarter, only to redeem themselves with a last-second shot by Alonzo Mourning and a heart-stopping 104-103 victory over the Boston Celtics. Boston forward Kevin McHale, having seen his unlikely chance for a fourth championship ring end with Mourning's jumper, then announced his retirement at midcourt. Charlotte's victory clinched the first-round playoff series, three games to one, making the Hornets the first of the recent expansion teams to win a postseason series.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will have the home court in their favor and lack of Game 7 experience working against them when they play the Boston Celtics today in the finale of their Eastern Conference semifinal series. The teams will meet at the Richfield Coliseum, with the Cavs facing their first Game 7 since 1976. The Cleveland players, in the wake of the 122-91 pasting the Celtics handed them on Friday night, have been saying all the things you'd expect them to say in such a situation.

For a night, it was like turning on the projector and watching an old highlight film. Larry Bird, Boston's future Hall of Fame forward, took us on a trip down memory lane. He scored 16 points, had 14 assists and grabbed 6 rebounds as the Celtics defeated Cleveland last night, 122-91, to tie their best-of-seven NBA quarterfinal playoff at three games apiece. Game 7 is scheduled for 2 p.m. tomorrow at the Richfield Coliseum. And given Bird's incredible resurrection, anything is possible.
