Jersey Guys Harrington and Thomas Lead Knicks Over Nets

The Knicks used only seven players, but that was enough, as they outscored the Nets 98-76 in the final three quarters to beat New Jersey at the IZOD Center Wednesday night. Thanks to a hot start from Devin Harris, the Nets jumped out to a 12-point lead early on, and led by as many as 15 early in the second, but the Knicks got hot and closed to within six at halftime. With the Nets' offense struggling in the third--and Harris on the bench with four fouls, New York took the lead and extended it to double-digits early in the fourth. The Nets never threatened after that. Harris led the Nets with 32 points and seven assists, while Vince Carter added 18 points, seven boards and six assists. The Nets' inability to get stops in the second half countered their offensive success, as they shot 53% overall and 41% from deep. The Knicks, who were led by New Jersey natives Al Harrington (Roselle) and Tim Thomas (Paterson) with 39 and 26 points respectively, outscored the Nets 32-10 at the free throw line.
