Nets Can't Get Over Hump Against Knicks

The bounces (and whistles?) just weren't in the Nets' favor Saturday afternoon at the Izod Center and a second-half comeback fell short, as they fell to Knicks, 98-91. Devin Harris gave the Nets a spark when he came off the bench, but the Knicks controlled the first half and led by nine at the break. They led by 15 late in the third quarter when a 16-2 Nets run spanning the third and fourth cut the deficit down to one. The Nets couldn't take the lead though, and the Knicks held on, with the dagger coming on a three by Al Harrington with just under a minute left. Chris Douglas-Roberts led the Nets with 24 points, Brook Lopez finished with 18 points and 12 boards and Terrence Williams added 17 points. Harris returned to contribute 12 points and seven assists in 26 minutes, but the Nets shot just 41 percent from the field and 4-18 from 3-point range.
