NBA scores: Knicks win weekend pair, Brooklyn falls to Miami

US PRESSWIRE

The New York Knicks handled the Washington Wizards and Phoenix Suns, while the Brooklyn Nets had a five-game win streak snapped by the defending NBA Champions.

The New York Knicks reclaimed the top spot in the Atlantic Division by winning both of their games this weekend, while the Brooklyn Nets split back-to-back games after blowing a lead against the Miami Heat.

The Knicks played a pair of winnable games, and won both. The Washington Wizards provided no threat as Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith each chipped in 20 points in a 21-point win over the league's worst team on Friday night. Sunday, the Knicks quickly got out to a double-digit lead over the Phoenix Suns and pushed in to 20 points in the third quarter, although Shannon Brown and hometown boy Sebastian Telfair each got hot in the fourth quarter to cut the margin to as little as six points, but Anthony's effortless 34 points was enough for the 106-99 win.

Brooklyn found itself without a member of its starting lineup with Brook Lopez missing time with a sprained ankle, but Joe Johnson's 22 points and Gerald Wallace's five threes gave the Nets their fifth straight win Friday night over the Orlando Magic. Saturday, they were up 14 against the Eastern Conference-best Miami Heat, but poor outside shooting -- they were 6-for-28 from three -- and 34 points from Dwyane Wade allowed the Heat back into what was eventually a double-digit win.

Here's a look at how New York's two teams fared this weekend:

Friday, Nov. 30

New York Knicks, 108, Washington Wizards, 87

Brooklyn Nets, 98, Orlando Magic, 86

Saturday, Dec. 1

Miami Heat, 102, Brooklyn Nets, 98

Sunday, Dec. 2

New York Knicks, 106, Phoenix Suns, 99
