Wednesday, January 13th the two New York teams renew their rivalry as the Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks tip off at Madison Square Gardens in their first meeting of the 2020-21 campaign.
Last season, the squads played four times with each club winning twice. The Knicks hold the all-time record having won 101 of 199 matches played.
Kevin Durant returned to the Nets lineup on Sunday losing to the Oklahoma City Thunder. That the sobering loss occurred versus his drafting team is one thing but the fact the Thunder are expected to tank and held a better record (at the time) was embarrassing.
Additionally, it was the first time this season head coach Steve Nash harshly criticized his club citing their lack of competitive fire and pride. So it was pretty clear the Nets’ effort would be improved facing a better talent (Nuggets) on Tuesday.
That pride and fire were on display as the Nets overcame an 18-point deficit to beat the Nuggets. Durant led the way for his club coming one rebound shy of a triple-double as he posted 24 points and 13 assists.
Bruce Brown started in place of Kyrie Irving who missed his fourth game for personal reasons and made his minutes count scoring 16 points and was pivotal in the comeback.
Caris LeVert (20). Joe Harris (15), and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (11) were the other double-figure scorers.
Kyrie Irving (personal) and Tyler Johnson (health and safety) have missed the last four games with both questionable for Wednesday.
Spencer Dinwiddie (knee) is out for the season while Nicolas Claxton (knee) has no definitive return date.
New York Knicks
This match is one of those times you wish the pandemic was long gone so fans could pack MSG. There would undoubtedly be booing either aimed at KD and Irving for spurning them to join their cross-town rivals.
Or directed at owner James Dolan who they hold responsible for the continual demise of the storied franchise.
In fairness, there have been sweeping changes made with Leon Rose hired to run the Knicks’ brain trust and Tom Thibodeau calling the shots from the bench. This year is meant to be another year to develop the youth like RJ Barrett, Kevin Knox, and Mitchell Robinson.
But New York got out to a 5-3 start and it seemed like Thibs might have figured out a way to get his team into the postseason — consistent, hard-nosed defense.
However, since that early success, the team stopped playing with the same intensity falling under .500 with three consecutive losses to the Thunder, Nuggets, and Hornets.
Versus the Hornets, Knox led scoring (19 points) while Robinson posted a double-double (12 points, 11 rebounds). All five starters reached double-figures.
Reggie Bullock (hip) is doubtful for Wednesday. Obi Toppin (calf), Frank Ntilikina (knee), and Alec Burks (ankle) are out indefinitely.

Free Brooklyn Nets vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction:
This match would be one Irving would’ve marked on his calendar so perhaps he’ll return but even if he doesn’t Durant said he plans to play despite it being a back-to-back set.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Nets ATS
Even with a concerted defensive effort from the Knicks there isn’t anyone who can stop KD which should equate to an easy Nets win.
