For the second straight night, the New York Knicks looked more like a High School JV squad than a professional basketball team. The Knicks [got blown out] by the New Jersey Nets 110-94 at Continental Airlines Arena last night, dropping Isiah Thomasís team to 2-2 in the preseason. The loss came just one day after they got embarrassed by 40 in Boston.


Eddy Curry led the Knicks with 23 points and Jamal Crawford added 22, but the Knicksí defense had more holes than a sieve. The Nets shot 56 percent from the field, 53.8 percent from three-point range and racked up 27 assists, while New York totaled 21 turnovers.


Allan Houston, who [already stole $100 million] from the Knicks this millennium, [sat out](http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/19/sports/basketball/19knicks.html?_r=1&ref=sports&oref=slogin) the second game of his comeback. When asked if Houstonís chances of making the team were slim, Thomas said, ďIíd say thatís accurate.Ē I donít think he could make the team any worse, however, and from my perspective, he owes the Knicks about four years of All-Star caliber basketball that he got paid for but didnít play.
