The Battle of New York takes place to tip-off the 2nd half for both teams as the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets go at it Friday night.
These two teams met back on 1/13 here in Brooklyn and it was the Nets who led throughout and held on for a 110-104 win.
New York will also continue their season without Derek Fisher, who was fired prior to the break.
The Knicks have certainly improved from last season, which wasn’t hard. However, after flirting with the .500 mark for the entire first half, they completely fell off, which also included the firing of head coach Derek Fisher.
By no means are the Knicks out of the playoff race yet, but they trail by 5 games for the 8 seed and sit in 12th place.
New York stumbled right into the break, losing 6 straight games as they dropped 4 of their last 5 at home. Losses to Boston, Detroit, Memphis, Denver, and Washington closed out the first half.
Defense has been the main problem for New York as they allow 101.3 points per game.
They bring in just a 9-17 SU record on the road into this one.
While the Knicks aren’t out of the playoff race, the Nets have been out for quite some time.
Brooklyn has been one of the worst in the NBA and in the East as they have just 14 wins, which is good enough for 14th place. In fact, they hold just a 4.5 game lead on last place Philadelphia.
One of those 14 wins this season came against the Knicks in January as the Nets came in slight underdogs, just like this one, and never let New York get over that hump to grab the lead. Brooklyn put in one of their best offensive performances of the season as they finished with 110 points on 52.3% shooting from the field.
10 of the 14 wins this season have come inside the Barclays Center. Brooklyn is 10-21 SU, but average just 97 points per home contest.

Free New York Knicks vs. Brooklyn Nets NBA Prediction:
Both of these teams are rather poor, but give the slight edge to Brooklyn here. They play better at home and with the Knicks limping into the break, their mentality coming into this one may not be as strong.
