NEW YORK (AP) – Channing Frye forced the third overtime with a buzzer-beating jumper, Jamal Crawford took over from there and the New York Knicks outlasted Richard Hamilton and the Detroit Pistons 151-145 Wednesday night.

The Knicks withstood their third overtime game in 10 days and Hamilton’s career-high 51 points, the first 50-point game against them since Michael Jordan accomplished the feat in 1997. They improved to 4-0 in OT this season, including a pair of triple-overtime games. New York won at Memphis in its season opener.

Crawford finished with 29 points, nine in the third overtime. He carried the Knicks after Stephon Marbury fouled out with a season-high 41 points in the second extra period, leaving the already short-handed Knicks with only two available guards.
