Devin Harris scored 31 points and Courtney Lee added 25 as the New Jersey Nets erased an early 16-point deficit to win in New York, 113-93, last night. The Nets improved their NBA-worst record to 7-55, while the Knicks missed all 18 attempts in the most futile 3-point shooting night in league history.

Despite its woeful record, New Jersey has actually won three straight road games.

Brook Lopez finished with 18 points and 11 rebounds for New Jersey, which made 14 3-pointers.

David Lee scored 23 points and Wilson Chandler had 20 for the Knicks, who lost for the 12th time in 14 games.

Suns 113, Pacers 105 - Amare Stoudemire scored 30 points for the third consecutive game as host Phoenix beat Indiana in a game marred by two fights and eight technical fouls.

Things got heated with 46.7 seconds remaining in the third period when the Pacers’ Earl Watson appeared to push the Suns’ Channing Frye. Indiana’s Danny Granger then took a swipe at Frye, who swung back. The Pacers’ Roy Hibbert and the Suns’ Jason Richardson joined the altercation. Things were also testy midway through the second period when Indiana’s Josh McRoberts and Phoenix’s Louis Amundson scuffled.

Bobcats 101, Warriors 90 - D.J. Augustin scored 19 points, Gerald Wallace added 18 before getting ejected for elbowing Anthony Tolliver in the face, and Charlotte pulled away to beat visiting Golden State and spoil Stephen Curry’s return home.

Bucks 92, Cavaliers 85 - Rookie Brandon Jennings scored 25 points and Milwaukee beat visiting Cleveland as LeBron James watched from the bench, resting a sore right ankle.

Heat 100, Hawks 94 - Dwyane Wade scored 38 points, and Michael Beasley capped a big fourth quarter with 7 consecutive points in the final two minutes, helping Miami beat visiting Atlanta.

Mavericks 122, Bulls 116 - Dirk Nowitzki scored 27 points and Rodrigue Beaubois and Caron Butler added 24 apiece as visiting Dallas extended its season-high win streak to 11 games.

Spurs 102, Grizzlies 92 - Richard Jefferson scored 18 points, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili added 17 each, and San Antonio extended Memphis’s skid at home to eight in a row.

Jazz 107, Clippers 85 - Mehmet Okur scored 27 points and Carlos Boozer got his 40th double-double of the season with 17 points and 17 rebounds as Utah rolled at home.

Rockets 112, Timberwolves 98 - Luis Scola had 25 points and a career-high 21 rebounds as struggling Houston beat host Minnesota.
