NEW YORK (AP) - The Sacramento Kings finally beat an Eastern
Conference team on their 29th try, getting 30 points from Kevin Martin on Friday night in a 121-94 victory over the fading New York Knicks.
Beno Udrih added 20 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for the Kings, who had lost five straight overall and were two games away from a winless season against the other conference. They put an emphatic end to both skids, racing out to a 15-0 lead and dealing a crushing blow to the Knicks' already faint playoff hopes.
Nate Robinson scored 19 for the Knicks, who have lost three straight, including consecutive blowouts on their home floor after an encouraging road trip left them only two games out of the final playoff berth.
