NBA: New York 102, New Jersey 73
Wilson Chandler scored 16 points Wednesday and David Lee recorded his 65th double-double of the season, leading New York past New Jersey 102-73.
Lee led the NBA this season in double-doubles, but that was not enough to lift the Knicks into the playoffs. They have not been a part of the post-season in five years.
New York won only three of its last 10 games this season and finished at 32-50. Larry Hughes added 15 points and Chris Wilcox had 14.
Chris Douglas-Roberts had 18 points for the Nets (34-48), who lost nine of their final 13 games. The Nets missed the playoffs for the second straight season.
