Knicks 105, Nets 95: No Stoudemire, No Problem For Knicks

Even without the services of Amar'e Stoudemire, the New York York Knicks were able to end the New Jersey Nets modest two-game winning streak with a 105-95 victory.  The Knicks have now taken the first two games of the season series from the Nets.

Leading the way for New York in Stoudemire's absence was Wilson Chandler with 21 points.  Toney Douglas scored 19 off the bench in just 21 minutes, while Landry Fields had 14, including nine points on three-of-four shooting beyond the arc.

As a team, the Knicks shot 47 percent from long range (16-34).

Devin Harris paced the Nets with 22 points, but also had a team-high five turnovers.  Following a 31-point performance against the Knicks the last time these two teams met, Brook Lopez scored 19 and Sasha Vujacic had 15.

After going down 21-18 in the first quarter, New Jersey didn't hold a lead until there were just over six minutes left in the fourth.  An Anthony Morrow three put the Nets up 89-87 with 4:33 remaining in the game, before the Knicks rattled off back-to-back threes.

The Nets are now under .500 at home (13-14) while the Knicks are 13-14 on the road.

Both teams will play their next game at home.  New Jersey will host the San Antonio Spurs on Monday while New York welcomes the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday.
