Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- On a night when Stephon Marbury struggled, the New Jersey Nets managed to finally beat their cross-river rivals.

With Johnny Newman and rookie Stephen Jackson playing unlikely key roles, the Nets posted a 96-83 victory over the New York Knicks, who reverted to their losing ways on the road.

Marbury hit just 5-of-15 shots from the field and finished with 12 points, half his season average. But he succeeded in involving everyone in the offense, handing out 12 assists.

"We wanted the game more than them tonight. We played harder than them," Marbury said. "This may not have been one of my better games, but for the team it was one of our best games as far as playing together defensively."

Keith Van Horn led the Nets with 20 points and 11 rebounds and Newman, a former Knick, added 18 points.

Emerging from coach Byron Scott's doghouse, Jackson provided a major boost off the bench, scoring 10 of his 13 points in the second quarter, when the Nets outscored New York, 31-15.

"I think our guys are really starting to come together," Scott said. "We're getting maximum effort, it seems, every night from certain people and a lot of guys are starting to follow suit. Tonight, Stephen gave us a big lift in the first half."

Rookie Kenyon Martin, who recorded his first triple-double in Monday's loss to Milwaukee, had 14 points and 12 rebounds for New Jersey.

Allan Houston scored 23 points and Marcus Camby added 17 and 10 rebounds for New York, which had won the previous two meetings from New Jersey by an average of 17 points but shot just 37 percent (28-of-75) Friday and was outrebounded, 54-41.

"We got outcoached, outplayed, outhustled and outworked, and that is always a bad sign for our team and our organization," said Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy. "Sometimes, the less said the better so that is all I have to say."

Knicks leading scorer Latrell Sprewell missed 8-of-12 shots and finished with 16 points.

"It was frustrating. It is not one person, it is the entire team," Sprewell said. "I don't think it has anything to do with the coaches, it's just the players. We talked about different things and we talked about what we need to do to get rolling again."

The loss dropped the Knicks (36-26) 1 1/2 games behind Miami for the third spot in the Eastern Conference. The teams meet Sunday in New York.

The Knicks had snapped a seven-game road losing streak with a 79-75 win at Indiana on Wednesday. They again played without starting forward Larry Johnson, who missed his second straight game due to back spasms.

Sprewell scored seven points to help the Knicks build a 20-15 lead, but the Nets closed the quarter with an 8-2 run. Newman ignited it with a three-point play and Martin capped it with an alley-oop dunk off a pass from Marbury, giving the Nets a 23-22 lead.

A 14-3 run in the second quarter helped the Nets open a 47-33 lead. Jackson highlighted the spurt with a 3-pointer, a dunk and a free throw.

A 3-pointer by Newman and a hook shot by Martin in the final 30 seconds of the half increased the advantage to 54-37.

The Nets shot 59 percent (10-of-18) in the second quarter while the Knicks were at 29 percent (6-of-21).

"After the first quarter, we really controlled the game," Van Horn said. I think Johnny Newman played great tonight. For him to come in at his age and do what he did was great."

After a dunk by Martin increased New Jersey's lead to 60-39, Houston hit a pair of jumpers and Sprewell converted two free throws for New York. But the Nets maintained a 15-point lead for most of the quarter and a late 8-2 run gave them their biggest advantage at 79-57 on a pair of free throws by Aaron Williams with 1:40 left.

The Knicks pulled within 86-74 on a layup by Camby with 4:11 left, but Marbury connected on a 3-pointer and Van Horn made a layup with 3:16 left.
