January 13, 1995:  Hubert Davis led the New York Knicks to a ferocious comeback against the Milwaukee Bucks

Down 17 points in the third quarter, Hubert Davis helped fuel a major comeback to lead the Knicks to a 91-88 victory on the road. Davis scored 21 points, but went on a three point barrage between the 3rd and 4th quarters to reverse the deficit. In less than a 5 minute stretch, Davis hit all 5 of his three-point shots and single-handedly started a 14-0 run. The run turned a 76-64 deficit into a 78-76 lead.

In typical Knicks fashion, their defense stifled the Bucks and held them without a field goal for 11 of the 12 minutes in the 4th quarter. The Knicks held the Bucks to only 12 points and likewise outscored them by 12 to claim the victory. The victory extended their win streak to eight games.

The Knicks drafted Davis as the 20th overall pick in the 1992 NBA Draft. He served as an adept three-point shooter off the bench during his tenure with the team. His most memorable moment was hitting the go-ahead free throws in Game 5 of the 1994 Eastern Conference Semifinals after Scottie Pippen fouled him. The Knicks traded him shortly before the 1996-97 season after the team signed Allan Houston.
