NEW YORK, Oct. 16 (Ticker)
-- Allan Houston continues to sit and Jamal Crawford continues to score.
Crawford scored 25 points in three quarters as the New York Knicks grabbed control early and cruised to a 98-84 preseason victory over the San Antonio Spurs.
Crawford was acquired from Chicago in a sign-and-trade deal this summer, receiving a seven-year, $56 million contract. He scored 19 points in Thursday's preseason opener and is making a bid to win the starting shooting guard spot from Houston, who is recovering from offseason knee surgery.
