Knicks 98

Nets 91

Heap every indignity, hurl every insult, heave every ignominy upon the Knicks. But keep one thing in mind.

They're not the Nets - who, at 0-13, are just the ninth team in the history of the NBA to lose a baker's dozen to start a season.

"We just didn't want to be the team that came in here and gave up their first win," said Knicks forward David Lee.

Of course, the Knicks weren't. The Knicks grabbed a lead early, held off a Nets charge late and with six double-figure scorers negated the return of All-Star Devin Harris to the Nets' scene with a 98-91 victory yesterday in the Meadowlands.

Though there was heady feeling among the Knicks, led by 17 points each from Danilo Gallinari and Al Harrington, who delivered a 3-point dagger with 59.9 seconds left, there was more of the same frustration and disappointment from the Nets . Again, the Nets were in position to win. Again, they couldn't get key stops or make the important shot.

"No one around the league cares about our situation," said Chris DouglasRoberts (24 points). "Really, this is my first time ever being in a position like this. It's brand new to me. . . . It definitely weighs on you. It's like a monkey on your back that you can't get off."

The Nets had all sorts of burdens again, including Brook Lopez (18 points, 12 rebounds) getting in foul trouble, Sean Williams (three blocks) fouling out and some simply ineffective offense late. Rookie Terrence Williams (17 points) got the Nets within 83-82 with a trifecta at 4:53, but the Knicks (3-9) responded with an 11-5 streak that included two triples, one by Chris Duhon (11 points, eight assists) and Harrington's killer for a 94-87 lead.

But hey, the Nets had nine guys at least. In five of their previous six games, the Nets had eight available players.

"They'll be fine as soon as Devin comes back 100 percent and they get Courtney Lee," Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni said. "They've had so many injuries, it's hard to count."

Suffice to say, you start with a real high number and go from there.

In the endgame, the Knicks, who pick-androlled the Nets to death much of the afternoon, led by four after a layup by David Lee (16 points, 12 rebounds) at 1:43. When Harris misfired for the Nets , Harrington eventually beat the clock with his 3-pointer for a 7-point lead with under one minute to go.

"The play wasn't for me but I made up my mind if I got it, I'd shoot it," Harrington said. "I'm glad they swung it."

Yeah, the Nets were all giddy about that, too. This was not what the Nets hoped for with Harris, who had missed 10 games with a strained groin - but twice dove out of bounds for loose balls.

"I definitely hoped it would end in a win. We're getting closer and closer, but late in the game we just can't find the stops that we need to get over the top," said Harris who played 26 minutes, made his first four shots but two of his last nine and finished with 12 points, seven assists off the bench.

And it just wasn't enough against the Knicks, who had Lee negate Lopez's 4-inch height advantage by fighting and pushing him off the blocks.

"They're like beating a drum. They keep running pick-and-rolls with David Lee slipping. At one point where we thought we had it in control, he had one on us late," Harris said.

"We feel like we've been right there. We need to take that next step obviously, so we can get in the win column," said Lopez, who played undeniably cautious - OK, soft - with foul trouble. "But getting a guy like Devin back, he brings so much to us. . . . We just need to look at this as a step forward, as much as it hurts."

O-fer get it!
