NEW YORK — Amare Stoudemire scored 35 points and the New York Knicks broke open a close game right after New Jersey lost point guard Devin Harris to injury, beating the Nets 111-100 on Tuesday night.

Comment on this story

Wilson Chandler added 27 points and 11 rebounds for the Knicks, who won for the seventh time in eight games and improved to 10-9, the latest in a season they've been above .500 since they were 16-15 on Jan. 4, 2005. Raymond Felton finished with 21 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds.

Harris limped to the back with a left knee injury after he was hurt on Chandler's basket that snapped a 65-all tie midway through the third quarter. That was part of a 14-2 spurt that gave the Knicks a 10-point lead, and they were never really challenged from there.
