  • Nets 116, Jazz 115: Just when the Nets thought their road trip couldn't get any crazier, it did. They'll take a come-from-behind win instead of a come-from-ahead loss, of course. Vince Carter hit a 30-footer at the buzzer, the last three of his 29 second-half points. With the win -- the fourth down-to-the-wire and the second buzzer-beatter game on the trip -- the Nets salvaged a 2-3 record on their Western swing. Things could have been a lot worse.

  • Rangers 6, Bruins 1: The hot-and-cold Rangers were hot, and so was Brendan Shanahan, who scored on a penalty shot. Petr Prucha had two goals for New York, which has won two straight since the All-Star break.
