2006_11_snetslogo.jpg-Nets 106, Celtics 103: Vince Carter hit two free throws in the game's final seconds to seal the Nets' win and help end a six-game losing streak. The three-point lead Carter's gave the Nets was their largest all game; New Jersey outscored Boston, 30-19, in the fourth quarter. Hassan Adams' 16-point contribution should not be overlooked, and neither should the importance of this victory. November matters little in the NBA season, but the Nets have to be pleased it ended on a bright note.

-Knicks 101, Cavaliers 98: Quentin Richardson poured in 27 in a return from injury as the Knicks again demonstrated the ability to win on the road that has been absent at home. The Cavs' LeBron James also had 27 points, but the Knicks caused him to commit five turnovers. Eddy Curry scored 12 fourth-quarter points, and his teammates were singing his praises afterwards. Of course, they probably would like to see the inconsistent Curry live up to his contract a few more times before they worship him as a leader in crunch time.
