NEW YORK, N.Y. - One strong defensive quarter helped the New York Knicks end a seven-game skid.New York held Denver to just one basket in the second quarter en route to a 109-93 victory over the Nuggets on Sunday.The Nuggets missed their first 15 shots of the period before Ty Lawsons layup at the buzzer ended the nearly 13-minute drought. New York outscored Denver 31-8 in the quarter to blow it open.I thought probably defensively that was the difference in that quarter, Fisher said.We scored 31 points in the first quarter as well even though it may not have looked as pretty as it did in the second quarter but someway we found a way to hold them to eight points and I thought that was the difference in the game.Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith, whove had their shares of moments grasping the concepts of a new offensive system, each scored 28 points to lead New York. But the Knicks first win since Nov. 2 against Charlotte boiled down to their defensive effort in the second quarter, which gave them a 62-39 lead heading into the second half.I thought in that second quarter we played great defence, buckling down, keeping them out of transition. It led to our offensive end, said Anthony, who made 10 of 14 shots from the field. Once we got stops on the defensive end, we felt confident enough to go down there and make some shots and run our offence and do what we had to do.Arron Afflalo had 18 points and Ty Lawson added 17 points and nine assists for the Nuggets, whove lost seven of their last eight games. Kenneth Faried chipped in 16 points.Afflalo, who hit 4 of 5 3-pointers and scored 13 points in the first 12 minutes of the game, had never experienced a slide like the one Denver went through in the second quarter.I noticed that we only had scored six points pretty much that whole quarter and I knew we hadnt made a few free throws, but I didnt recognize the fact that we hadnt been able to score the ball from the field, Afflalo said.Samuel Dalembert had eight points and eight rebounds for New York.Trailing by as many as 25 points after Anthonys shot made it 79-54 for the Knicks with 5:36 left in the quarter, Denver went on a 25-10 run, capped by Nate Robinsons three-point play that made it 89-80 with 8:55 in the final quarter.But New York pulled away for good with a 13-3 spurt of its own. Amare Stoudemires three-point play made it 92-80. After a free thrown by Denvers Alonzo Gee, Smith scored four straight points and Anthony hit a 3-pointer that extended New Yorks lead, 99-82 with 5:50 remaining. Lawson then added a free throw before Smith answered with a shot beyond the arc that made it 102-83 with 3:58 left.The Nuggets started out with a good rhythm in the opening quarter, hitting 6 of 9 3-pointers, but then hit their scoring drought, which started after Darrell Arthur hit a 20-footer with 50.2 seconds left that gave Denver its last lead 31-29 of the game.I thought we started out the game getting what we wanted, but it was an exchange, we were scoring, they were scoring, Denver coach Brian Shaw said. In the second quarter we were tentative offensively and we had a long drought with no penetration, turnovers missed free throws and they slowly continued to score.TIP-INSNuggets: Denver took advantage of the Knicks defence, which entered the game having given up an NBA-worst 42 per cent beyond the arc, by hitting 6 of 9 3-pointers in the first quarter.Knicks: Smith started in place of shooting guard Iman Shumpert, who sat out after suffering a right hip contusion Friday night. He made 10 of 16 from the field, including a pair of 3-pointers and hit six free throws.QUICK RESTStoudemire, who had played in each of New Yorks first nine games, was back in the lineup after sitting out Friday nights loss to Utah. He scored nine points and grabbed six rebounds in 20 minutes.OFFENSIVE FUTILITYThe one basket in the second quarter wasnt the worst ever for a team as a few teams have gone a whole period without a hoop.

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Sabres coach Ron Rolston added NHL experience to his new staff by hiring Joe Sacco on Tuesday. Sacco is a former NHL player who spent the past four seasons as the Colorado Avalanche coach before being fired in April after the team missed the playoffs for a third straight year. Sacco had a 130-134-40 record and was an NHL coach of the year finalist in 2010 after leading the Avalanche to the playoffs in his first season. In May, Sacco coached the U.S. national team to win a bronze medal at the World Championships in Sweden. Rolston described Sacco as an ideal fit because of his coaching experience and familiarity with teaching young players, as he had done with the rebuilding Avalanche. And Rolston had to remain patient in waiting for Sacco, who had been a candidate for at least two NHL head-coaching vacancies. "Once those opportunities passed, it was a situation where -- at that point -- he was obviously a no-brainer to bring in and talk to," Rolston said. "In terms of what we had here and the direction we were going, we thought hed be a perfect fit." The Sabres are in transition by rebuilding through youth. Rolston is part of the teams transformation. He took over as interim coach in February after Lindy Ruff was fired. He was then hired on a full-time basis in May after closing the season with a 15-11-5 record. Saccos hiring fills one of two openings in Buffalo after Rolston fired both bench coaches, James Patrick and Kevyn Adams. Rolston intends to hire one more assistant, while confirming hes retained two assistants, Teppo Numminen and goalie coach Jim Corsi. Rolston and Sacco have ties to USA Hockey, but have never worked together. Sacco was a forward during 13 seasons in the NHL before retiring in 2003.dddddddddddd Drafted by the Maple Leafs in 1987, he finished with 213 points (94 goals, 119 assists) in 738 career games split between Toronto, Anaheim, the New York Islanders, Washington and Philadelphia. Earlier in the day, Sabres general manager Darcy Regier indicated he wasnt prepared to make a major splash once the NHLs free-agency period opens Friday. He is instead interested in targeting veteran role players who would be able to complement Buffalos young lineup. "Our focus is going to be on supporting this younger group," Regier said. "It means fit. And the fit may be positional, it may be character, it may be to add some scoring." Regier remains noncommital as to whether he intends to trade his two star veterans, goalie Ryan Miller and forward Thomas Vanek. Both players are entering the final years of their contracts, leaving their futures uncertain in Buffalo. "Its incumbent upon me to have a sense of what the marketplace is or re-sign them, versus allowing them to become unrestricted and just have very good assets walk out the door," Regier said. "It would be fair to characterize that Im actively finding out what the marketplace is." ---- NOTES: After an up-and-down rookie season, C Mikhail Grigorenko can expect to play all of next year in Buffalo. Though the 2012 first-round draft pick is still eligible to play at the Canadian junior level, Regier said he intends to have Grigorenko develop with the Sabres. ... Regier said D Alexander Sulzer will become a free agent. ... The Sabres will hold a three-day rookie development camp in Buffalo next week. ' ' '
