Amar'e Stoudemire scored more than 30 points for the second straight game as the Knicks blew open a close game and downed the Nets, 111-100, at Madison Square Garden. The news got worse for the Nets, when Devin Harris left the game with a knee injury.

When the point guard departed, the score was 67-65 in favor of the Knicks. That helped key a 14-2 Knicks run, and the team never looked back. This is the latest in a season the Knicks have been over .500 since January of 2005. They probably shouldn't boast too much about that.
