Knicks Coach Larry Brown Hospitalized

April 14, 2006

CLEVELAND (AP) _ New York Knicks coach Larry Brown will be hospitalized overnight after becoming ill in the third quarter of Thursday night’s game against the Cavaliers.

The 65-year-old Brown was taken from Quicken Loans Arena on a stretcher following New York’s loss. He appeared alert and was sitting upright with oxygen tubes in his nose as he was wheeled out to an emergency vehicle.

Team spokesman Jonathan Supranowitz said Brown was examined by Cavaliers team doctors after leaving the bench in the third quarter. Brown’s vital signs were ``stable,″ but because his symptoms came on so quickly, doctors felt it was best that he go to the hospital for further tests and observation.

Supranowitz said Brown had an upset stomach. He would not say which hospital Brown was being taken to.
