Knicks @ Nets: ESPN 7pm
Knicks enter the Barclays Center for the second time this young season. The Nets got the upper hand in the last match-up with an overtime win. NY and Brooklyn battled back and forth in an evenly matched game in November, but NY ran out of gas in the extra period and the Nets went home with a hard fought win.
This time around NY is firing on all cylinders. Well, sort of, the Knicks were clumsy and out of sync for 3 quarters, but found their way in the 4th for a “Gut Check” win against Denver. In order for the Knicks to get a win in Brooklyn, they must move the ball and Melo needs to be aggressive and block out the soreness of the hand. The Knicks are 15-5 so far this season with some great wins and tough losses. The Nets were one of those tough losses, resulting in a marked date on the Knicks calendar.
The Nets are 11-8 and have lost 4 in a row. Their last game was a loss to the Bucks, who had a 30 point lead at one point in the game at the Barclays Center. The Nets eventually battle back to cut the lead to 8, but it was not enough and lost an embarrassing game in front of their home crowd. Line-up changes and injuries have been a factor as it is with every team in the NBA. Tonight is no exception. The Knicks are without Camby, Stat and Shump and the Nets are without Brook Lopez, who played a exceptional game last meeting against NY. Can the Nets correct their winning ways against the tired and beat up New York Knicks? This game is the beginning of a great rivalry that will continue next week at MSG.
Overall, the Knicks and Nets are battling for bragging rights and a fan base, but in the end, this game is one of 82. The Knicks motto is “one game at a time”. If you think this way, then the Knicks will take this game as another in the long NBA season. The Knicks have the upper hand at this moment and want to continue their season in a steadfast direction. Let’s Get It!

New York Knicks point guard made the worst attempt shot of the season, and possibly the worst in NBA history, during the fourth quarter of Tuesday night's game at the Barclays Center against the Brooklyn Nets.
Felton had an open look and took the shot, but to say it was a little off would be an understatement, as it went straight up in the air about 20 feet.
J.R. Smith absolutely blew up Gerald Wallace today during the Knicks 100-97 comeback win over the Brooklyn Nets. Gerald came down the lane for a rebound and J.R. was having none of it, so he decided to stick it to Wallace for no good reason. The result was Wallace on the ground in a great deal of pain.

Look at the ups on ref Courtney Kirkland as he tries to block the Net’s Kris Humphries’ free throw. Courtney needs to cut back on the caffeine, that was a bit of an over reaction.
This great Wednesday morning is filled with good basketball stories. We had the one handed baller, two huge dunks by Blake Griffin against the Bulls, Minnesota player throwing down a fast break 360 dunk, Mike D'Antoni yelling at the media, and Jason Kidd hitting a controversial game winner against the Nets. Might as well add one more to the mix. Check out the video below...

NEW YORK -- Mike Woodson has enjoyed some solid victories in his brief stint as the head coach of the New York Knicks, but none quite as emotional and as exciting as Tuesday night's win in the Battle of the Boroughs.
