Uniondale, NY (Sports Network) - Steve Novak drained the go-ahead three- pointer with just over a minute remaining in overtime and the New York Knicks topped the intra-city rival Brooklyn Nets, 97-95, at Nassau Coliseum in the final preseason tuneup for both teams.

Trailing 93-91, Novak, who finished with six points in a 16 1/2-minute run off the bench, received a kick-out pass at the top of the key and buried the long distance shot, putting the Knicks ahead, 94-93.

Nets rookie Tyshawn Taylor missed an 11-footer at the other end and Mychel Thompson gave the squad from Manhattan a 97-93 lead with another trey with 44.3 showing on the clock.

MarShon Brooks sank two free throws following a steal by Andray Blatche, cutting the Knicks lead to two with 20.5 seconds left.

Following a time out by New York, Brooks came up with a steal, giving the Nets a chance to win or tie. On the Nets final possession, Brooks missed a 6-foot layup with 2.7 seconds remaining, sealing the win for New York.

Chris Copeland led the Knicks with 16 points, while Raymond Felton and Carmelo Anthony contributed 15 points apiece. Thompson and Ronnie Brewer donated 13 and 12 points, respectively, in the victory.

New York center Tyson Chandler left the game in the first quarter.
