Things you need to know about tonight's game...
1) After a first half that saw the Nets pour in a high percentage of shots, the Knicks battled back in the second half. They found themselves down 12 points, but they managed to take a six-point lead at one point in the fourth quarter. However, the Nets regained their momentum in the final minutes to close out the victory.
2) Enes Kanter and Tim Hardaway Jr. led the Knicks offense tonight, as each scored a game-high 29 points. Kanter had another double-double with 29 points and 10 rebounds, while Hardaway had four steals and a pair of rebounds.
3) Rookie Kevin Knox had a much better game than his debut on Wednesday. He was efficient from the field and made three three-pointers compared to 4-of-16 shooting against the Hawks. And the points came in clutch moments: With the Knicks down three with about five minutes left in the fourth quarter, he tied the game at 93 with a transition dagger from the corner. Knox seemed more composed, shaking off the nerves from his first NBA game.
