Default Mark Jackson coaching in MSG for first time

Mark Jackson finally will make his coaching homecoming Wednesday night at the Garden. To some New Yorkers, it comes 5 1/2 years too late.

Jackson, runner-up to Mike D’Antoni in 2007 to become the Knicks’ head coach, arrives with his swashbuckling Warriors club, led by All-Star ex-Knick David Lee, who said he is battling a bruised left shoulder and is questionable for the game. Lee also could face a suspension for his role in Tuesday night’s brawl against the Pacers.

Jackson was born in Brooklyn, played at St. John’s and had two stints with the Knicks as a play-making point guard. In his second season as coach, Jackson’s Warriors are sixth in the Western Conference at 33-23. Last season’s Warriors-Knicks matchup at the Garden was cancelled because of the lockout.
