Knicks top Maccabi in game featuring bizarre delay
NEW YORK — Nate Robinson scored 19 points, and the New York Knicks beat Maccabi Tel Aviv 106-91 Sunday in a game that featured a bizarre delay in the third quarter when the visiting coach refused to leave the floor after he was ejected.
The game was halted about 8 minutes when Pini Gershon continued to linger near Maccabi’s bench — a delay that included a rabbi trying to intervene by asking the NBA’s replacement referees calling the game to allow Gershon to stay.
David Lee added 14 points and 12 rebounds for New York.
Former Michigan State player Alan Anderson scored 20 points for Maccabi Tel Aviv. D’or Fischer added 19 points and 16 rebounds.
