 NEW YORK (AP) -Would you believe a player on the New York Knicks would guarantee a victory?
The Indiana Pacers did.
Indiana routed the Knicks 119-92 on Monday night, gaining a bit of extra motivation after hearing that Knicks center Eddy Curry guaranteed a victory - which Curry and the Knicks claim never happened.
``We did talk about it you know, I'm not going to lie,'' Pacers star Jermaine O'Neal said. ``We all thought it was strange, especially being so early in the season and especially the team struggling the way they've been struggling. But I can't really knock him because they may need that type of spark.''
But it didn't come from Curry, one of the Knicks' most laid-back players. He was surprised when he heard about the guarantee from Knicks spokesman Nick Brown, calling it a ``coaching tactic.''
``Nobody said nothing,'' Curry said. ``Nick came and told me. First I ever heard about that.''
No one on the Knicks or Pacers knew where the report of Curry's guarantee originated, though it may have started as a joke between writers. Knicks spokesman Jonathan Supranowitz said he heard all of Curry's remarks during the morning shootaround and there was no guarantee.
Not that they always work, anyway.
``It can go either way in this league,'' O'Neal said. ``The team can come out and play very well or you can guarantee and your team don't play well and then you kind of look (foolish) a little bit.''
