Nets vs. Knicks: After Losing Harris, New Jersey Can’t Keep Up With New York

Things were looking alright for the New Jersey Nets against the New York Knicks.

After several lead changes, they found themselves down two halfway through the third quarter. The game was still up for grabs, then it was effectively ended when Devin Harris injured his left knee.

Harris was hurt when, while defending a fast-break, Kris Humphries attempted to block a shot and came down on Harris, eventually landing on his leg after they fell to the ground.

The score was 67-65 at the time Harris exited. The Nets scored 10 points, hitting just four shots for the rest of the quarter, while the Knicks collected 21 and New Jersey was on its way to a 111-100 loss.

The Nets were unlikely to break .500 with Harris healthy. If he misses significant time they would have a hard time getting to more than 25 wins.

There was no immediate word on the seriousness of the injury, and Harris was able to walk off the floor on his own, but it did not look good. Given Harris' injury history, it would not be surprising to see him miss a big chunk of time.

The injury and the loss overshadows what was a very good effort from the team.
