Brook Lopez had 22 points and nine rebounds, Joe Johnson and Deron Williams each scored 21 points, and the Nets extended their season-high winning streak to seven games with a 113-106 victory over Toronto on Tuesday night.
The return of Stoudemire shouldn’t really be a big deal. It’s very clear that Anthony, the main man no matter who is on the Knicks, has to get the overwhelming majority of his minutes at the four.

The Nets’ opening night win at Barclays Center was a big step forward for the revitalized franchise.
The Nets opened the Barclays Center in winning fashion as they defeated the Toronto Raptors 107-100.
Linsanity in New York is, well, gone with the Lin. Did the Knicks make the right move or will regret eventually rear its ugly head?

The Knicks are not in the Heat’s class right now. It’s an unavoidable fact that no one can deny after watching Miami easily dispatch the Knicks in five games.
Tonight, the Heat are out for the kill and will come out flying. To withstand all of that, the Knicks need to play a near perfect game. They need to do all these things to beat the Heat tonight.
I hate to break this to Knicks fans and newspaper reporters everywhere, but that Knicks win on Sunday really didn’t mean a whole lot.
