2006_11_sknickslogo.jpg-Knicks 100, Heat 76: Eddy Curry's 5-for-5 shooting in the third quarter helped the Knicks outscore the Heat, 34-14, in the period and helped New York roll to its second straight win. It's the Knicks' first winning streak of the season, though Friday's win came over a decimated Heat team. The Knicks have won the two games by a combined 44 points, and they've called on a wide range of contributors. Jamal Crawford, who scored 19, called it "the most balanced victory so far." They've had four through their first 10 games.

-Nets 100, Pacers 91: Lawrence Frank's club has had its share of injuries and illness, but it shrugged them off during a win in Indianapolis. Clifford Robinson, who earlier missed two games with a suspension, chipped in 14 behind Vince Carter's 28. Richard Jefferson, out over a week with a sprained ankle, could return for next week's trip, but a motivated Carter has helped the Nets along. A little luck didn't hurt either; the Nets saw the Pacers shoot 28.6 percent from three-point range.

-Lightning 3, Islanders 2: New York couldn't earn itself a penalty and lost in a seven-round shootout. Coach Ted Nolan wasn't thrilled with the officiating -- he said he couldn't remember the last time a game went without his team having a power play.

-Devils 3, Senators 2: Martin Brodeur allowed 6 goals in 34 minutes in an earlier 8-1 loss to Ottawa, but this time he and the Devils used two goals from Jamie Langenbrunner to exact some revenge.
