New York Knicks
Wow, do I wish I had gotten tickets to the Barclay Center on Monday. The game had a playoff atmosphere and also resembled a high school rivalry game as the crowd was buzzing for both teams. It is the beginning of a really exciting rivalry. The Nets have established their position and the Knicks have assembled a very strong and deep win-now team. And New York certainly is big enough for both.
This was a statement game for the Brooklyn Nets. In a game where Deron Williams didn’t have his shot and Joe Johnson again struggled, the Nets did what they had to do to win. The main numbers:
- Reggie Evans 14 rebounds (in 17 and ½ minutes)
- Jerry Stackhouse 4 for 5 shooting three pointers
- Brook Lopez: 22 points, 11 rebounds, 5 blocks
- Deron Williams: 16 points, 14 assists, 3 steals
- J.R. Smith, Rasheed Wallace, Ronnie Brewer, Raymond Felton combined 8 for 43 (18%) shooting
- Carmelo Anthony 10 for 16 shooting free t
BEST OF MAXIM
November 26th, 2012. A night that, even for its status as a technically unimportant midseason game, will live forever in Brooklyn Nets history. It was the night that the chant of “Brook-lyn” actually meant something. It was the night that a real rivalry started. It was a new start for a franchise that so desperately needed one. The New Jersey Nets were a punch line. Of all the...
Brooklyn Nets guard Joe Johnson broke out a wicked crossover move that nearly brought Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce to the floor during the fourth quarter of Wednesday night's NBA game at the TD Bank Center. Johnson led the Nets with 18 points to help carry them to a 95-83 victory. Video via. H/T Cosby. Visit us at http://holdoutsports.com and Follow @HoldoutSports...
Much to the delight of all onlookers who don’t associate themselves with the Brooklyn Nets, Tyson Chandler was in rare form yesterday. In front of 17,732 screaming fans, Chandler energetically ran, jumped, slammed, dunked, howled, and gesticulated. His spirited play resulted in one of the best box scores of his career, as well as the following putback jam over the backs of...
There are some who will contend that a rivalry isn't a rivalry just because one person declares it so, but in the case of the Brooklyn Nets and the New York Knicks, it only took one meeting to get a sense of how grand the battle for New York basketball supremacy already is.
In front of a packed and contentious Barclays Center house that fluctuated all night between pro-Knicks...

A hard foul by Brooklyn Nets forward Kris Humphries on the Celtics Kevin Garnett triggered a scrap under the Celtics basket late in the first half of Wednesday’s matchup between the two teams in Boston. The fight resulted in ejections for Humphries and Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo, who came in to defend KG. Brooklyn’s Gerald Wallace got his second technical of the night during...
With Derrick Rose out, Williams and Rondo are unquestionably the cream of the crop at the point guard position in the Eastern Conference. The first time their teams met (a 102-97 Nets win in Brooklyn win two weeks ago) Rondo missed the game with a sprained ankle. But tonight the two All-Stars will get a chance to go head to head. In past years when asked who was better, most...
When one of the biggest jokes in modern NBA history is poking fun at you, you’re one of the biggest jokes in modern NBA history. Please win tonight.

According Al Iannazzone, Jason Kidd will miss Monday’s New York battle between the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets with back spasms.
Jason Kidd is out with back spasms. He didn’t make the trip. Knicks may go now and start Kurt.
By Kurt, Iannazzone means Kurt Thomas. I find it hard to believe he will start after only playing a total five...
The NBA season is almost a month old, so time to take stock at what surprises the League has cooked up in the early going.
The Brooklyn Nets Are 9-4It's not the Nets record that is a surprise - it's the fact that they are winning despite so many underperforming players. Stars Deron Williams and Joe Johnson are both shooting 39% from the field. Brook Lopez remains...
Where Brooklyn at? On November 26, the Brooklyn Nets hosted the New York Knicks and took care of business with a 96-89 overtime win. Not only does the win establish themselves as a threat to the New York stranglehold that Knicks currently hold over the boroughs, but also a legitimate threat to the Atlantic division crown. Although it may be early in the season, it is always interesting...
