Nets' Gain Is Knicks' Loss

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey -- Kenny Anderson and Kevin Edwards each hit eight of their first 11 shots, and New Jersey continued its surprising domination of the New York Knicks by handing them their worst loss of the season, 103-83.


Tuesday night's win was the Nets' third in as many games against the Knicks this season, and this one was the easiest as Patrick Ewing got in early foul trouble.


Ewing picked up two fouls in the first two minutes and spent the rest of the first quarter on the bench watching the backcourt tandem of Anderson and Edwards combine for 19 points and a 32-25 Nets lead.


A 19-6 run at the start of the second quarter, featuring eight points by Edwards, stretched the lead to 20, and New York never came back.
