Both teams in the Big Apple have struggled to start the 2016 season, both with 2-4 records and towards the bottom of the Eastern Conference.
The Nets and the Knicks have both dropped three of their last four games and could certainly use the season rebound that this game could provide for the winner.
The Net will be on the second game of a back-to-back coming into this matchup. They play the Minnesota Timberwolves at home on Tuesday night. As of Tuesday, they are 13th in the East.
The Knicks lost their last game against the Utah Jazz 114-109 at the Garden.
They are currently in 11th place in the Eastern Conference. This is the first game between these two this year; they split the four-game series last year, with the Knicks winning the last one 105-91.
The Nets had chances to win the game Friday against the Hornets but their penchant for firing up three point attempts while not having the talent to make them really messed them up again.
Brooklyn has to look for better shots on the offensive end, and that means passing the ball instead of jacking up the first open opportunity.
Brooklyn is 14th in the league in scoring offense with 103.3 points per game. They are 8th in the league in rebounds, collecting 46.2 boards per game.
The Nets are 15th in the league in assists with 21 per contest.
Brooklyn is just 21st in the league in scoring defense as they allow 107.3 points a game. They are tied for 23rd in shooting percentage with 43.1 percent from the field.
Brook Lopez leads the team in scoring with 19.4 points a night. Sean Kilpatrick is also contributing 17 points per game off the bench.
Bojan Bogdanovic kicks in 15.2 points plus 4.2 boards per game, and Jeremy Lin averages 15 points and 6.2 assists per contest.
Lin has been battling injuries and could miss this game against his former team. With Lin out, rookie Isaiah Whitehead will get some more run for Brooklyn.
New York Knicks
The Knicks were solid on offense in their last game against Utah, but defensive struggles did them in again. New York put together a solid offensive performance in their Sunday matinee against the Jazz but forgot to play defense.
New York knocked down 50.6 percent from the field but they allowed Utah to shoot 50.7 percent against them in the contest.
New York is 18th in the league in scoring, averaging 102.2 points per game. They are last in the league in rebounding with 39.8 per contest while standing 14th with 21.2 assists per game.
The Knicks are 27th in scoring defense as they allow 109.8 points per game.
Carmelo Anthony is scoring 22.8 points per game plus six boards per game for the Knicks. Kristaps Porzingis averages 18.8 points and 6.5 boards a night. New Knick Derrick Rose is kicking in 16.3 points plus 4.8 assists a game.
The Knicks are tied for 6th in field goal percentage as they shoot 45.9 percent.
They are tied for 21st with 7.8 threes per game while ranking tied for 9th in three point shooting average as they hit 35.9 percent of their attempts.

Free Brooklyn Nets vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction:
Neither team has been particularly impressive this year, but the Knicks seem to have more potential for improvement.
Both are relatively good offensive teams that don’t play much defense, so this one will probably be high-scoring.
Although they don’t have to go far in this one, the Nets have yet to win on the road this year. They will also be coming off of a back-to-back, while the Knicks have not played since Sunday.
The Knicks are probably the more talented team and they will be more rested. Combine that with the home court advantage, and they should come out with a win.
