NEW YORK (AP) -- Stephon Marbury's layup just beat the buzzer, and gave the undermanned Knicks a stunning 97-96 overtime victory over the Utah Jazz on Monday night.

Two nights after a brawl with the Denver Nuggets that led to 10 ejections, New York -- down to eight players because of suspensions and injuries -- showed the right kind of fight. The Knicks bounced back from a dismal first quarter and knocked off the Northwest Division leaders.

Marbury had 29 points and eight assists and Jamal Crawford added 18 points -- all after halftime -- and the Knicks found a way to win despite making only two field goals in the final 8 minutes of regulation to get forced into the extra period.

Deron Williams scored 23 points for Utah, including a jumper that gave the Jazz a 96-95 lead with 3 seconds left. But David Lee found Marbury streaking up the left side with his inbounds pass, and Marbury made a layup that was ruled good after a review by the officials.
