EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -Al Harrington scored a season-high 39 points, fellow New Jersey high school star Tim Thomas also had his best game of the season, and the New York Knicks rallied to beat the Nets 121-109 on Wednesday night.
Harrington was a point shy of his career high, while Thomas scored a season-high 26. Acquired in separate deals on the same day last month, Harrington and Thomas were too athletic for the Nets' forwards, helping New York storm back from a poor start.
Harrington, who played at St. Patrick's in Elizabeth, was acquired from Golden State, and Thomas, who starred at Patterson Catholic, came over from the Los Angeles Clippers on Nov. 21 as the Knicks cleared salary-cap space for the summer of 2010.
Wilson Chandler added 24 points for the Knicks, who rebounded from a 105-100 loss in Chicago on Tuesday night and won for just the second time in six games.
Devin Harris scored 32 points for the Nets.
Raptors 101, Pacers 88
eason-high 25 points, Chris Bosh added 21 points and 10 rebounds and Toronto snapped a five-game losing streak to improve to 1-3 since interim coach Jay Triano took over for the fired Sam Mitchell.
Jamario Moon also had a season high with 17 points for Toronto. Danny Granger led Indiana with 22 points, and Troy Murphy had 20 points and 20 rebounds. The Pacers have lost four straight and nine of 11.
