New York Knicks' Amare Stoudemire, left, and Ronny Turiaf react during the second quarter of an NBA basketball game against the New Jersey Nets, Saturday, Feb. 12, 2011, in Newark, N.J. Stoudemire has a sprained right big toe and will miss the game.

NEWARK, N.J. — Wilson Chandler replaced the injured Amare Stoudemire in the lineup and scored 21 points, and the New York Knicks beat the New Jersey Nets 105-95 on Saturday night to avoid falling below .500.

Reserve Toney Douglas added 19 points and Landry Fields had 14, making three big 3-pointers in the fourth quarter as the Knicks won for just the second time in six games and improved to 27-26.

Stoudemire missed his first game of the season with a sprained right big toe, but the Knicks overcame their All-Star's absence by making 16 3-pointers, including Chandler's that gave them the lead for good with 4:08 left.

Devin Harris scored 22 for the Nets, who were bidding for their first three-game winning streak in two years.
