Ewingless Knicks Hold Cleveland to Record Low

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- John Starks scored 24 points and the New York Knicks, playing without All-Star center Patrick Ewing, held the Cleveland Cavaliers to their lowest point total in franchise history in a 75-65 victory Wednesday night.


Cleveland's previous record for fewest points was 67, posted in 1995 against Boston.


Ewing, chosen to start for the Eastern Conference in the All-Star game, had a strained groin and missed his first game this season. Charles Oakley had 13 points and 11 rebounds, Larry Johnson added 13 points and Buck Williams, 12.


Pistons 98, Trail Blazers 89. In Auburn Hills, Michigan, Grant Hill had 27 points and eight rebounds and Detroit came back from an 18-point deficit to beat Portland.


Joe Dumars added 20 points and Terry Mills came off the bench to score 13 for Detroit, which won its fourth in a row.


Aaron McKie of Detroit outscored Stacy Augmon 6-0 in their first matchup since being involved in a trade for each other last Friday.


Heat 103, Celtics 83. In Miami, Voshon Leonard scored 15 of his 20 points in the second quarter as Miami handed Boston its seventh straight loss.


Miami, coming off a franchise-best 63.2 percent shooting performance against Phoenix, shot 55 percent against the injury-depleted Celtics.


Alonzo Mourning had 24 points and 15 rebounds for Miami, while fellow All-Star Tim Hardaway added 15 points. Isaac Austin had 14 points and 10 rebounds.


Miami announced Wednesday that guards Dan Majerle and Gary Grant will both undergo back surgery, and each could be sidelined two months.
