NEW YORK (AP) — Alexey Shved scored 21 points and made the key defensive play in overtime, and the New York Knicks beat the San Antonio Spurs 104-100 on Tuesday night.

Rookie Langston Galloway had a career-high 22 points for the Knicks, who held the Spurs to just one basket in overtime to surprise the defending NBA champions. Lou Amundson finished with 12 points and a career-high 17 rebounds while playing tough against Tim Duncan.

Tony Parker scored 21 points for the Spurs and made their only basket in OT, 16 seconds into the period. They managed just two free throws from there in losing for the second time in nine games.

Shved knocked away Duncan’s pass intended for Kawhi Leonard with the Spurs trying to tie, then closed the scoring with two free throws.
