Warriors rally to edge Knicks

OAKLAND -- Stephen Jackson scored 16 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter and Andris Biedrins grabbed an NBA season-high 26 rebounds to help the Golden State Warriors rally from another double-digit deficit to beat the New York Knicks 106-104 Sunday night.

Golden State trailed by 10 points in the third quarter before finding its shooting touch late to win for the seventh time in nine games. The Warriors have trailed by double digits in 11 of their 26 wins this season.

The Warriors missed 17 of their first 19 attempts from 3-point range before Baron Davis hit his first of the game to cap 10-2 run that erased the third-quarter deficit and tied the game at 71.

Davis hit an even longer shot to beat the third-quarter buzzer, hitting a 40-footer after a long inbounds pass by Matt Barnes to cut New York's lead to 79-76 heading into the fourth.

Jackson then hit his first three 3-point attempts in the fourth quarter, all part of a 17-5 run that gave the Warriors a 95-87 lead.

The Knicks trimmed the lead to five on a 3-pointer by Quentin Richardson with just over 2 minutes to go, but Davis hit a fallaway baseline jumper to get the lead back to seven with 1:29 left.
