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.
