Elias Says ...

A daily glance inside the numbers from the world of sports:

• New York's 140-133 victory over Phoenix on Monday was the sixth triple-overtime game that the Knicks have ever played, but the first such NBA game in Madison Square Garden history. The Garden has hosted more than 2,200 NBA games, including over 1,500 at its current site.

Raja Bell, Boris Diaw, Kurt Thomas and Pat Burke each had six personal fouls for the Suns. Phoenix was the first team to have four players foul out of a game since it happened to the Bucks in a 120-113 regulation loss at Denver on Dec. 30, 2000 (Jason Caffey, Ervin Johnson, Jerome Kersey and Scott Williams).
