Knicks' Zone Stymies Nets in Second Half

The Nets' winning streak was snapped when they couldn't sustain their momentum into the second half at Madison Square Garden Sunday afternoon, falling to the Knicks 106-97. The Knicks led by one early in the second quarter when the Nets took control with a 13-1 run sparked by Rafer Alston and Keyon Dooling. They led by eight at halftime, but with the Knicks playing zone for most of the second half, the Nets scored just 36 points in the final 24 minutes. Chris Douglas-Roberts led the Nets with 26 points on 12-19 shooting. Devin Harris and Brook Lopez combined for 29 points in the first half, but just nine in the second. The Nets shot 50 percent from the field for the game, but were outscored 28-12 from the free throw line.
