We Reminisce: Allan Houston drops 53 on threepeat Lakers

It’s not official, and the Knicks will probably pay Allan Houston the respect of making it look like it was his decision, but it’s nonetheless obvious to anyone who’s been following H20’s comeback attempt that he’s just not cut out to make this New York roster. So before Houston’s career comes to its likely conclusion, let’s look back his glory days in blue and orange. On Feb. 16, 2003, Houston lit up the threepeat-defending champion Lakers for 53 points (18-for-29 FG’s, 4-for-5 3PA, 13-for-15 FT’s) and carried a Knicks team that had Howard Eisley and Othella Harrington in the starting lineup to a win. Houston’s counterpart, Kobe Bryant, scored 40 in the loss, while an injured Shaq didn’t play.
