NEW YORK, N.Y. - Deron Williams ankle problems are over and so is the New York Knicks winning streak in Brooklyn.Williams scored a season-high 29 points and the Nets beat the Knicks 110-99 on Friday night in the first meeting this season between the city rivals.Brook Lopez added 20 points and nine rebounds, and Joe Johnson scored 18 for the Nets, who had beaten the Knicks just once on their home floor since moving from New Jersey to Brooklyn in 2012. The Knicks had won the last three meetings here, but the Nets clearly looked like the best team in the Big Apple on this night.That was largely because of Williams, who had off-season surgery on both ankles after battling problems ever since the Nets changed addresses.Last two years have been a struggle, Williams said. Theyre behind me now, looking forward to this one and we got a great win tonight.Williams had only one 30-point game last season, but mightve gotten there if this one was close and he had to play more. The former All-Star danced around the Knicks for 10-of-15 shooting and six assists.Carmelo Anthony scored 19 points but shot 5 of 20 for the Knicks, who dropped their third in a row. They came in 29th in the NBA in scoring at 89.8 points per game, but the bigger problem was a defence that allowed the Nets to shoot 51 per cent from the field and make 14 of 24 3-pointers (58 per cent).I thought that kept us in the lead. Every time they made a run wed hit a 3, Nets coach Lionel Hollins said.The shooting was spectacular.With point guards Jose Calderon (strained right calf) and Pablo Prigioni (sprained right ankle) sidelined, the Knicks started Tim Hardaway Jr. in the backcourt with Iman Shumpert. Hardaway scored 16 points and Shumpert had 11.The crowd was divided as usual, though the Nets fans were much louder as the lead grew, while filmmaker and Knicks fan Spike Lee sat glumly near the Knicks bench for much of the second half.There were high hopes for the rivalry when the Nets moved to Brooklyn, and the teams split four meetings that first season and plenty of trash talk the following summer. But it was a dud last season, when none of the four games was close.This one was more of the same, with the Nets making their first five 3-pointers in racing to a 30-20 lead after one quarter. They shot only 5 of 17 overall in the second, but still pushed their lead to 55-42 at halftime.A 9-2 burst out of the locker room made it 64-44 on a three-point play by Lopez, and the Nets were comfortably ahead from there.Weve got to put out a lot more effort on the defensive end for sure, Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire said. Were still learning the offence, but in the process of doing that weve got to make sure we have the effort defensively. Were letting the offence affect us defensively and weve got to stop that.___TIP-INSKnicks: Hardaway started one game last season as a rookie. ... The Knicks wore their home white uniforms. ... Stoudemire had 14 points off the bench.Nets: Kevin Garnett grabbed five rebounds and has 14,243 in his career, passing Walt Bellamy for ninth place on the all-time list. ... Mike D of the Beastie Boys announced the Nets starters. ... The Nets honoured former owner Lewis Katz during a first-half ceremony that included NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. Katz died in a plane crash in June.___FROM LITTLE ROCK TO THE BIG APPLEDerek Fisher joked before the game that Johnson must be good, since hes from Arkansas. Johnson said he first met Fisher in the mid-1990s, when the Knicks coach was playing on a summer league team back home with former University of Arkansas standouts such as Corliss Williamson and Scotty Thurman, and they are friends. Youve got two country boys from Little Rock, Arkansas, who are in the big city, enjoying life, so I dont wish no ill will on the man, Johnson said. I wish him the best. Thats my guy.___UP NEXTKnicks: Visit Atlanta on Saturday.Nets: Host Orlando on Sunday.

After just two league games in June, Toronto (6-4-1) will go on to play seven in July plus a friendly against Tottenham. Five of those contests are against Eastern Conference opposition, meaning valuable points in the playoff race are on the line.Newcastles high number of foreign players may weaken their chances in Sundays relegation derby against Sunderland, according to former Magpies goalkeeper Shay Given. The two sides head into the 153rd Tyne-Wear derby at St James Park, live on Sky Sports 1 HD, knowing a victory could significantly improve their chances of avoiding relegation.Sunderland sit just above the relegation zone on 25 points, ahead of Norwich on goal difference, with Newcastle one point behind in 19th position. Given, who made 354 appearances for Newcastle between 1996 and 2009, knows all about the passion and rivalry that the fixture guarantees, but is worried the clubs foreign players may not be able to deliver the result that new manager Rafa Benitez desperately needs.Speaking on Sky Sports Now, Given said: My only concern is that there are a lot of foreign players at Newcastle now. Emmanuel Riviere battles against Bournemouths Steve Cook during the Magpies 3-1 defeat Sometimes you question whether they know what it means to play in such a big game as this - what it means to the fans, what it means for them going back to work on the Monday morning?Youd like to think Benitez can get that message across. Newcastle forward Aleksandar Mitrovic is one player who has not yet had the hoped-for impact He added: Its a tense occasion. Its huge for the fans, wanting to win this game more than any other game but if you asked any Sunderland fan or Newcastle fan this week would you take a loss at the weekend and stay up, they would probably do that.Its definitely a six-pointer, theyre both in the relegation fight and its going to be so close who stays up.ddddddddddddIt looks like Aston Villa have gone, and that its between Norwich, Newcastle and Sunderland [for the other relegation places] so it looks as if one of the two big ones from the north-east are going to go down. This game at the weekend is monumental. Rafael Benitez took charge of his first Newcastle game against Leicester Its not just a normal game, its not just another Premier League game, its a very special occasion. You can cut the tension with a knife beforehand.Sunderland have won the last six Tyne-Wear derbies, while Newcastle are enduring a run of failing to score in the past four matches against their local rivals.Eight points adrift of Newcastle is another one of Givens former clubs, Aston Villa, who have managed to record just three league victories all season and the 39-year-old has deep concerns for Remi Gardes side ahead of their trip to Swansea on Saturday, live on Sky Sports 1 HD. Its bleak reading when you see the Premier League table relegation fight at the bottom and theyre so far adrift, Given said.Randy Lerner invested I think £50m in the summer, thats a huge investment. The biggest problem is the players they brought in dont seem to be up to the standard of the Premier League. Theyre sometimes good players in the French leagues or the Dutch leagues but its a big step up to the Premier League and personally I felt they should have signed more Premier League experienced players in the summer - who know the league and know what it takes to stay in the division.
