Balanced Attack Powers Nets Over Knicks

The Nets got solid contributions from all 8 players who Lawrence Frank used Saturday night, and they used a balanced attack to defeat the first place Knicks at Madison Square Garden. New Jersey built an early 15 point lead with some hot shooting, and led by as many as 18. When the Knicks closed to within 5 with less than 2 minutes left, Rodney Buford hit a big 3 to increase the lead back to 8. Buford scored 13 points off the bench on 6 of 8 shooting. Richard Jefferson led the Nets with 17 points.
