(Newser) – The Los Angeles Clippers used a balanced scoring attack to defeat the New York Knicks 103-94 in Madison Square Garden. Seven Clippers scored in double figures; they were led by Corey Maggette’s 19 points, which mostly came on a 10-for-10 night from the foul line. Eddy Curry scored 19 points to lead the Knicks, who have now lost six straight, reports the New York Times.

The only real excitement for the New York fans during an otherwise forgettable game was when a trio of defensive backs from the Super Bowl champion New York Giants arrived. R. W. McQuarters, Sam Madison, and Kevin Dockery showed up at MSG during third quarter and received a standing ovation from the crowd.
