Dec. 29 -- For the second time this season and the third in 2006, the New York Knicks won a triple-overtime affair Wednesday night.

The Knicks have now won three of the last six triple overtime games played in the league, including a memorable 140-133 victory at Madison Square Garden over Phoenix on Jan. 2 of last season and a gritty 118-117 show on opening night of this season in Memphis.
Only two days later, Emeka Okafor had 22 points and 25 rebounds, while Raymond Felton scored 22 points and dished out 15 assists as the Bobcats won the first triple-overtime game in franchise history, 133-124 over the Lakers, despite a season-high 58 points from Kobe Bryant.
