Knicks Beat Nets ... Again

New, comments

The Nets will have just one more chance for a preseason victory after falling to the Knicks 94-92 at the Prudential Center Wednesday night. After a tight first quarter, the Knicks shot 14-for-16 in the second and led by 18 at halftime. The Nets came all the way back in the third and led by one going into the final 12 minutes. But with the Knicks playing four rookies down the stretch, they went on a 7-0 run to take a 5-point lead in the final minute and held on for the win after Courtney Lee missed at the line with one second left. Chris Douglas-Roberts got to the rim at will and led all scorers with 26 to go along with five rebounds, four assists, four steals and two blocks. Lee finished with 19 points and two steals. They combined to shoot 15-30, but the rest of the team shot 31 percent. A crowd of 15,721, 3,000 more than last week, were at "The Rock," including Dwight Gooden, Joe Jackson, and members of Mikhail Prokhorov's Onexim Group, but not Prokhorov himself.
