Bender the feel-good story in Knicks comeback win

NEW YORK (NBA.com exclusive) -- Jonathan Bender hadn't played an NBA game in four years.

But in his return from exile, the 7-foot former lottery pick was instrumental in helping the Knicks overcome a 20-point first half deficit to beat the Clippers, 95-91, before 19,763 at Madison Square Garden. It was their largest comeback win of the season and the fifth time they overcame a double-digit deficit in victory this season.

Bender hit two clutch foul shots to give the Knicks their first lead of the game at 76-74 and David Lee scored 17 of his game-high 25 points in the second half, including a critical tip-in to put the Knicks ahead for good, as New York (9-17) stopped a two-game losing skid.

"It feels good," said Bender, who finished with 9 points, 2 rebounds, 1 block and 1 flagrant foul in his first game since Nov. 5, 2005. "I was real excited. I had a lot of adrenaline going out. I just wanted to get out there and do good, definitely make my first shot. After I got that off my back, I felt pretty good from there."

The Knicks outscored the Clippers (11-14) 53-33 after trailing 58-42 at the half.

Lee scored 13 points in the third period as the Knicks outscored the Clippers 30-14, tying the game at 72 on a driving lay-in by Lee in the final seconds of the period.

But his most important play came with 36.2 seconds remaining and the Clippers ahead 91-90 thanks to a Baron Davis 3-pointer.

Al Harrington took a 9-foot jumper from the right wing that bounced off the iron. Lee was set up perfectly under the basket and volleyed the loose ball first with his right hand toward the basket. After the ball came back down, Lee's left arm extended above the fray and he knocked the ball into the hoop for a 92-91 Knicks lead.

"I was just trying to follow [Harrington's] shot," Lee said. "Both bigs [Chris Kaman and Marcus Camby] went and tried to block the shot and I just tried to follow it. And [I] got some resistance on the first tip and then I was able to just tap it to myself and put it back up and in. I was actually surprised the ball went in, to be honest with you. I was kind of backwards when I tipped it, but I just tried to make a hustle play at the end and a lot of times those are the plays that win games."

Added Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni: "He did a little bit of everything. He really had a super, super second half for sure."

Al Thornton was then whistled for an offensive foul after Danilo Gallinari (14 points) positioned himself in front and drew the charge.

Chris Duhon made 1-of-2 foul shots with 13.7 seconds left to push the Knicks lead to 93-91.

Rasual Butler missed a 3-pointer in the waning seconds and the Clippers then fouled Chris Duhon with .9 seconds left.

Duhon made both to cement a stunning 95-91 comeback.

Duhon finished with an impressive line that read 17 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds over 37 minutes. That was his second double-double of the season and his second double-digit assist total of the season.

Still, the feel-good story of the game was Bender.

Bender, 28, was the No. 5 pick of the 1999 NBA Draft, but retired from the NBA in 2006 because of chronic knee pain.

He said during the first year of his retirement he thought he'd never play in the league again.

"That pain was some unbearable stuff," he said before the game. "[I thought] 'If I can't get rid of that, there's no way I'm going to try really.'"

Knicks president Donnie Walsh traded for Bender while in Indiana and gave him a shot to try out with New York this past summer.

Bender initially balked, feeling he wasn't completely healthy, but he called Walsh a couple of weeks ago to say he was ready to go.

He checked in with 2:39 left in the first quarter and the Knicks trailing 26-8.

He proceeded to drive on Camby for a layup and then drain a 3-pointer, scoring five straight points. He also was whistled for a flagrant foul 1 that led to two Eric Gordon foul shots.

"I think you can see and hope what he can bring us," D'Antoni said of Bender. "He's a very athletic, long 7-footer that can spread the floor and can run. And he's been there. He's played on some good teams and had some big moments."

The Knicks hope there are many more big moments to come.
