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.
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.
