Knicks to host Maccabi Tel Aviv in exhibition

The New York Knicks will host Maccabi Tel Aviv in an exhibition game for the second time in three years. The Euroleague team will play at Madison Square Garden on Oct. 18, the Knicks announced on Thursday. Proceeds from the game will benefit Migdal Ohr, the world's largest orphanage. The Knicks beat Maccabi 112-85 on Oct. 11, 2007, a game that drew the largest crowd for an exhibition game at MSG. Many in the crowd supported the visitors, who had a large contingent cheering and waving Israel's flag. Maccabi Tel Aviv also will visit the Los Angeles Clippers on its trip to the United States.
