NEW YORK -- At least the New York Knicks can say they won a city championship. Mel Ott Giants Jersey . Only the Brooklyn Nets have a chance to compete for a real one -- though theyd better play a lot better than this. Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 16 points and the Knicks, playing without the injured Carmelo Anthony, beat the Nets 109-98 on Tuesday night to win the season series between city rivals. And in an otherwise massively disappointing season, apparently local bragging rights do matter. "Hell yeah," Knicks guard J.R. Smith said. "I mean, Im cool with some of those guys over there, so I can still say something when were in the gym this summer. As long as I can say they didnt beat us that many times, were good." The Knicks prevented the Nets from clinching the No. 5 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs and won their third straight in their too-little, too-late strong finish. Amare Stoudemire and Smith each added 14 points. Anthony had an MRI exam Tuesday that revealed a torn labrum in his right shoulder. He wont play Wednesday against Toronto, the final game of the first season in his 11-year career that wont end with a playoff berth -- and potentially his last as a member of the Knicks. He has said he will become a free agent in July. Marcus Thornton scored 24 points for the Nets, who werent sharp despite playing starters Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Deron Williams and Joe Johnson. The other starter, Shaun Livingston, remained sidelined with a sprained right big toe. The Nets still have a magic number of one for finishing fifth. But they could fall to No. 6 if they lose Wednesday in Cleveland and Washington beats Boston. "Tonight was an example of how not to take a step forward. We were off our game offensively, defensively, all phases of the game and thats not how you want to go into the playoffs," Pierce said. The Knicks would be in the playoffs themselves if they played against everyone else the way they did against the Nets while winning three romps. All four games were on national TV, though none was really worth watching after halftime. The Knicks won a pair of routs, 113-83 at Barclays Center in December and 110-81 at Madison Square Garden two weeks ago. The Nets won by 23 in their lone victory. The overhyped city series didnt live up to preseason expectations, much like the Knicks. Players from both sides had sparred in the press during the summer after the Nets made their big off-season moves, expecting to battle to be the best in New York and also the Atlantic Division. Well, the division champion isnt from New York -- or even the U.S. Toronto finished ahead of both teams. The Knicks have defeated the Raptors, Bulls and Nets, currently the Easts Nos. 3-5 seeds, in their last three games, and coach Mike Woodson said it was "irritating" that his team would be watching the playoffs from home. "If we had handled our business early on and didnt let some of the close games get away, we probably wouldnt be standing here. Wed probably be preparing for playoff basketball, but thats not the case," Woodson said. "We put ourselves in this hole and were going to have to live with it this summer and then try to figure it out next season." The Knicks led 29-18 after one and the game got fun midway through the second quarter. Stoudemire had a powerful follow dunk over Mason Plumlee, screaming into the rookies ear afterward. Plumlee responded in the best way possible, dunking on the Nets next two possessions. Plumlee finished with 16 points on 7-of-9 shooting and grabbed nine rebounds. But Brooklyn never really got into the game, and the only real interest in the second half were some occasional dueling chants between the split crowd. A "Goodbye Melo!" chant from a section of Nets fans was soon followed by a loud "Lets go Knicks!" NOTES: The Nets wore their Brooklyn Dodgers-inspired grey uniforms on Jackie Robinson Day. He debuted for the Dodgers as the first black player in the major leagues on this date in 1947. ... Pierce became the sixth player in NBA history to score 1,000 points in 15 straight seasons, joining Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (19), Karl Malone (18), John Havlicek (16), Elvin Hayes (15) and Robert Parish (15). ...

Barry Bonds Jersey . -- The top-seeded Alberta Pandas set up of an all-Canada West final against arch rival UBC at the CIS womens volleyball championship after a 3-0 win over the No.SAN DIEGO -- In what has been an emotional stretch for the San Diego Padres they have played their best baseball. The Padres ninth-inning rally on Friday night produced a 6-5 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers, their third straight victory. "This has been a tough week for San Diego," Padres manager Bud Black said. "When you look at the whole week, it has been more so than just the game. This was a good win for the city." Hall of Famer and Padres icon Tony Gwynn died Monday at age 54 after a long battle with cancer. The team has been struggling with the emotional aftermath since. But after returning home Tuesday, the Padres havent lost. With Gwynns No. 19 etched in right field, the Padres came back to beat the Mariners twice and added another thrilling win against Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen (0-3). "Its unacceptable to pitch a game like that," Jansen said. Everth Cabreras sacrifice fly capped San Diegos three-run ninth. "When I hit the fly ball I celebrate like it was a walk-off bomb," Cabrera said. "Especially against the Dodgers with all their fans from L.A. here." It was the Padres third consecutive win and it snapped a three-game winning streak by the Dodgers. Trailing 5-3, Alexi Amarista opened the San Diego ninth with a single off Jansen and scored on Carlos Quentins pinch-hit double. Venable tied the game when his double scored pinch-runner Andrew Cashner. Venable took third on Rene Riveras sacrifice and scored on Cabreras deep fly to right. "The last three days, we played real baseball," Cabrera said. Dale Thayer (3-2) pitched the ninth for the victory. Yasiel Puig, who had two RBIs for the Dodgers, left in the eighth inning with a mild left hip muscle strain. Seth Smith homered twice, doubled and walked for the Padres. It was Smiths sixth multi-homer game of his career. "I came in early and worked on some things," Smith said. "Its fun when you put in the work and you see the results." The Padres bullpen, which has been strong all season, tthrew four scoreless innings to keep the game close. Matt Cain Jersey. "All year long those guys have done their thing," Black said. After Smiths second homer in the sixth, the Padres had the tying runs aboard when Cameron Maybin reached on a fielders choice and Amarista walked. But Jace Peterson struck out to end the threat. The Dodgers scored three times in the fifth, aided by two wild pitches and an error by Amarista at third base. With runners in scoring position and the infield playing up, Puig hit a one-out grounder between third and shortstop which deflected off the gloves of Amarista and Cabrera into short let field to score Dee Gordon. Amarista retrieved the ball and when his throw home was wide, Hanley Ramirez scored on the error. Puig advanced to third on the play and scored on Adrian Gonzalezs sacrifice fly for a 5-1 lead. Gordon opened the game with a triple and scored on Petersons errant relay throw to third. Later in the inning Gonzalez doubled and Matt Kemp drove him in with a base hit to left off Amaristas glove for a 2-0 lead. Smith homered to right-centre in the first to bring the Padres within 2-1. "There are always close games with these guys," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "To me, they are one of those clubs that are tough to beat." NOTES: The National Baseball Hall of Fame requested Clayton Kershaws cleats from his Wednesday no-hitter. Kershaw said his accomplishment has started to sink in. "I couldnt sleep very well that night obviously, then the next day to turn on the TV and hear about it was pretty cool stuff." ... Dodgers OF Carl Crawford (left ankle sprain) is still unable to do baseball activities, Mattingly said. ... Padres 3B Chase Headley was out of the lineup with a sore back. ... Padres LHP Robbie Erlin (left elbow soreness) has increased his throwing program and could join the team on its upcoming trip. There is no date for his return. ...
