2006_11_sknickslogo.jpg-Cavaliers 102, Knicks 96: The good news: Channing Frye opened up and scored 17 points. The bad news: The Knicks let Damon Jones score 29 points and fell to the Cavs at home. At 2-6, the Knicks are a lot closer to being 0-8 than they are to 4-4 -- one win came in triple overtime and the other on a miraculous last-minute play. In the end, the Knicks' inability to hit the outside shot and the Cavs' range turned the game. Jones, who has described himself as "the best shooter in the world," hit seven three-pointers in 10 tries.
-Sonics 119, Nets 113: Playing on consecutive nights for the first time this season, the Nets looked weary in a loss at home to Seattle. They fell behind by as many as 28 in the first half before closing to make it respectable. Just as Jones torched the Knicks, Luke Ridnour had a career night in lighting up the Nets, scoring 32 points. Vince Carter's 38 points couldn't make up for Richard Jefferson's absence, but Nets president Rod Thorn has suggested Jefferson's sprained ankle won't keep him out much longer.
