Kris Humphries landed on Devin Harris' left knee midway in the third quarter, taking him out of the game and taking the air out of the Nets.  Within minutes after Harris limped off to the locker room, a two-point game turned into a Knicks rout. The Nets seemed deflated, and the Knicks went on an extended run that put them up by 15.

After the game, Harris said he's "not that worried. The doctor said it was pretty stable when he was doing his knee thing-a-ma-jig.'' Avery Johnson was not so optimistic, saying he hoped for "some good news" after an MRI Wednesday morning.

The Nets tried coming back but never got closer than eight.  Most of the damage was done by Amare Stoudemire, Raymond Felton and a surprising Wilson Chandler, who combined for 83 points. Chandler and Felton both finished with double-doubles and Stoudemire missed by one rebound. 

For the Nets, it was all Brook Lopez in the first half as he went off for 21, finishing with 36, one short of his career high.  Jordan Farmar, filling in for Harris, finished with 17 but only four assists.  Travis Outlaw scored 13 while Humphries had his worst game since being installed as a starter finishing with 8 and 7 and letting Stoudemire score at will.
