96-89 in overtime

The Nets, in their first season in Brooklyn, improved to 9-4 with the victory, including 7-1 at home. The Knicks dropped to 9-4.
Four Nets players scored in double digits, led by Brook Lopez, who finished with 22 points and 11 rebounds.
Deron Williams also notched a double-double
with 16 points and 14 assists, and Reggie Evans (14 rebounds) and Jerry Stackhouse (14 points, four three-pointers) made substantial contributions off the bench.
Carmelo Anthony (35 points) and Tyson Chandler (28) were the game's two leading scorers. But outside of Anthony and Chandler, the Knicks shot a woeful 10-47, including a
John Starks-esque 3-for-19 performance
from Raymond Felton.

The J.R. Smith of old also made a cameo for the Knicks. The team's sixth man, who has been lauded for his start to the season, had a
early in the fourth quarter, passing up a fastbreak layup for a pull-up three-point attempt.
Jay-Z and the Nets have been pushing the New York rivalry hard since the team relocated from New Jersey. Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz
referred to the Knicks as the "Manhattan Knicks,"
and the Nets handed out t-shirts promoting the rivalry ahead of the game.
