New York Knicks (9-3) vs. Brooklyn Nets (8-4)
At long last, the Knicks and Nets will meet in the battle of New York. A new rivalry is born and the excitement in The Big Apple is pretty palpable. TNT reported on its pregame show that Raymond Felton compares the excitement for this rivalry to North Carolina-Duke.
Pushing it back after Hurricane Sandy might have done more to build this thing up.
There is a lot of pride on the line in this one. The Knicks have to fight for fans in Brooklyn and show that their hot start is for real and one that fans throughout the city can attach themselves to. The Nets are fighting to get a share of the Knicks' pie.
More than that though, there is the basketball game. These two teams are second and third in the East, first and second in the Atlantic Division in this early part of the season.
Both teams have had their successes and both teams have had few failures.
This is not just a battle for New York, this is a...
BEST OF MAXIM
It seems like every year, there is some athlete, whether in the NBA, NFL, or MLB who just defies expectations and completely .... bombs. I wouldn't go so far as to classify Knicks point guard Raymond Felton a bomb, but for someone who was the 5th pick in the 2005 draft, his career has not lived up to expectations.But you must understand that his career started in Charlotte. When...
Aside from the Knicks' own resident Brooklyn boy Carmelo Anthony, there was perhaps no other Knickerbocker looking forward to Monday's matchup with the Nets more than Jason Kidd.After being the leader of such New Jersey Nets squads that went head to head with the Knicks in the early 2000's, Kidd understands exactly what the rivalry is all about. He understands how much...
NY STATE OF MIND
The Knicks lost a heart breaker to the Nets in overtime on Monday, but Tyson Chandler had a great night. Chandler went off for a career high 28 points while shooting 92% from the field. He capped it off with some seriously impressive dunks, including this monster put back that was the highlight of the night. Check it out: The post Tyson Chandler has monster put back dunk...
Back spasms prevented Jason Kidd from playing in the first inter-borough battle last night between the Knicks and Nets at the Barclay’s Center. Kidd, who’s had back issues in the past, didn’t even attend the game. At 39, Kidd is the league’s 3rd oldest player, so this could be just the first of many lingering injuries for the 18-year veteran this season.
According to Newsday...
The New York Knicks entered the first Battle of the Boroughs short-handed Monday, as guard Jason Kidd sat out the game against the Brooklyn Nets due to back spasms. Kidd, who missed a game for the first time this season, is listed as day-to-day. The guard's absence caused a lineup shuffle for the Nets. Carmelo Anthony moved to small forward, with Kurt Thomas starting at power...
NEW YORK (AP) -- Carmelo Anthony scored 29 points in just 32 minutes, and the New York Knicks ended a two-game losing streak with a 121-100 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Sunday.
Steve Novak added a season-high 18 and JR Smith had 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Knicks, who started 8-1 and had the Eastern Conference's best record before a couple of defenseless performances...

From the Yankees vs. Mets, Giants vs. Jets and Hov vs. Nas, rivalries brew in New York. Now, we've got a new rivalry on our hands, Knicks vs. Nets.The post BROOOOOK-LYN: The Knicks Vs. Nets ‘Rivalry’ Was Fun Last Night appeared first on The Sports Fan Journal.
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...
If Carmelo Anthony were to describe his game, he might sound a lot like Liam Neeson in Taken: “I have a very particular set of skills.”
Anthony has been consistently great at one thing since he entered the league. He scores. Anthony has averaged at least 20 points per game in all 10 of his NBA seasons, and in his last three games, he has averaged 29.7 points.
That could be very...

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 Nets relocated to the New York Knicks' backyard, and were looking to start the season by showing off their new home to the neighbors.
Superstorm Sandy put those plans on hold.
After waiting for over three weeks, the Nets finally get to host the Knicks on Monday night in what is now an early season matchup between the two top teams in the Atlantic Division.
