Brooklyn, NY (Sports Network) - Brooklyn-native Carmelo Anthony carried the
scoring load for New York with a season-high 45 points, but it Jason Kidd who
put the dagger in his former-team.
Kidd, who missed the first matchup against the Nets two weeks ago, shot 6-of-8
from downtown and buried the deciding triple late in fourth to lift the Knicks
to a 100-97 victory over Brooklyn to even the season series.
Anthony shot 15-of-24 from the field, including 5-of-7 from three-point range
while Kidd totaled 18 points, six assists and six rebounds for New York, which
has won six of its last seven games since losing to the Nets on Nov. 26.
Deron Williams tallied 18 points and 10 assists for Brooklyn, which lost its
fifth straight game and has won just twice since beating New York. Andray
Blatche led the Nets in scoring with 23 while Gerald Wallace and Joe Johnson
followed with 17 and 16 points, respectively, in the loss.
