The first time the Nets and Knicks played in late November, the two teams had a combined 2-21 record. Two weeks later, it was 6-31. Now, with the Knicks playing their best basketball in years, it's 14-48. It's no longer the battle of the basement. The Knicks are a half game out of the playoffs. One positive for the Nets: Jarvis Hayes, who tore his hamstring in two places on opening night, may be back.
