Wednesday, February 16th the Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks play the second of four games between the Atlantic Division rivals scheduled for this season. Brooklyn won the initial match 112-110 on November 30th.
The Nets will host the next contest on March 13th while the teams will finish the season series on April 6th at MSG.
Both teams last played on Monday with Brooklyn finally ending the losing streak defeating the Kings 109-85 while the Knicks played the Thunder losing 123-127 in overtime
In history, the Nets hold a slim 102 winning edge over the Knicks in the clubs’ 203 meetings. Last season the teams played three times with the Nets sweeping the season series.
Having finally ended their losing streak the Nets can breathe a sigh of relief. That the win came at home where Kyrie Irving can’t participate made the win all that more impressive.
Seth Curry led the way in his debut at Barclays sporting a Nets’ jersey posting 23 points, seven rebounds, five assists, and hit three of his eight 3-point attempts.
Andre Drummond also got made his debut offering 11 points, nine rebounds four assists, two steals, and a block. The team had much better spacing than during the losing streak and that’s only going to improve once Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, and Ben Simmons are all active.
Bruce Brown also had a big night registering season-bests in points (19), assists (6), and steals (5) adding six rebounds and three blocks.
LaMarcus Aldridge (19) and Cam Thomas (14) offered double-digit scoring as the top reserve contributors.
Kyrie Iring (vaccine) is ineligible to play. Ben Simmons (conditioning) Kevin Durant (knee), and Joe Harris (ankle) are all out indefinitely.
New York Knicks
The Knicks front office might be questioning their trade deadline decision to not make any moves as they once again lost a double-digit lead. This time it happened against a team TRYING to lose games to improve their lottery odds — the OKC Thunder.
Adding salt to the Knicks’ wound, was OKC was missing their star Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and two of their rookies had career nights . Josh Giddey in particular was spectacular posting a triple-double.
Julius Randle also posted a triple-double (30 points, 13 rebounds,10 assists) that wasn’t as sweet given the loss. Mitchell Robinson registered a double-double of 14 points and 17 rebounds.
Evan Fournier scored 29 points connecting on six 3-pointers while Quentin Grimes (19) and Alec Burkes (11) were the other double-digit scorers.
Nerlens Noel (knee) and RJ Barrett (ankle) didn’t play Wednesday and are assumed out Wednesday. Derrick Rose (ankle) is out indefinitely.

Free Brooklyn Nets vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction
With the game in New York, it means Kyrie Irving has already begun his vacation since he can’t play due to still being unvaccinated.
While the Nets will seek to replicate the effort they had versus Charlotte this is a whole different matchup especially on the defensive end of the floor. For starters, the Knicks actually play defense.
Expect a great atmosphere at MSG as these Knicks-Nets matchups always bring an added element of desire as the cross-town rivals look to take the edge in the City. To that end, if any team will inspire best efforts from the Knicks it’s the Nets but I still like this to be close.
