Shump sizzles: Third-year guard Iman Shumpert had a few highlight plays against the Nets. He had a killer crossover that shook off Paul Pierce and hit the subsequent jumper to get Knicks fans out of their seats. Shumpert also finished an alley-oop off the backboard (via Toure' Murry) in the fourth quarter that drew the attention of Knicks fans.
Shumpert finished with 11 points three steals and four rebounds.
Youth movement: Tuesday's game provided a platform for the Knicks' younger players to show if they fit in the team's future plans.
All three took advantage.
Cole Aldrich had 13 points and 13 rebounds in 26 minutes. Jeremy Tyler had eight points, two rebounds, an assist and a block in 20 minutes, and Murry finished with nine points, five assists and three steals in 20 minutes.
What's next: The Knicks finish the season on Wednesday against the Raptors.
