    Marbury
    Feb. 28, 2005
    New York saw an 11-point lead on the Lakers disappear in the final two minutes of regulation, but Stephon Marbury made sure Knicks fans went home happy Monday. With the Knicks down four in overtime, Marbury was credited with a layup after Lamar Odom was called for goaltending with 1:10 left. Then, with the game tied, Marbury's two free throws with 12.1 seconds left sent New York to a 117-115 victory. Marbury earned 12 Nestlé Crunch Time points.
