Well not much to brag about in terms of Big Apple hoops with the Nets and, especially, the Knicks being major disappointments this season.
The Nets have lost 3 of their last four games and they have the worst record in the NBA. Still, they recently beat the Knicks, but they were at home.
The Knicks snapped their 3-game losing streak in their last game, but this season has still been a disaster.
In their last games the Knicks beat the Indiana Pacers 87-81 and the Nets lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder 122-104.
This season the Nets rank a decent 13th in points per game, but dead last in points allowed.
In their loss to the Thunder the defense let the Nets down again allowing 122 points on 50.6% shooting and they allowed OKC to shoot 50% from behind the 3-pt arc.
The Nets did not have a bad shooting game against the Thunder, but their defense struggled and they committed 20 turnovers.
Brook Lopez and Jeremy Lin combined for 49 points in the Thunder game and 4 of 5 starters scored in double figures, but no reserves did.
Lopez leads 4 players averaging in double figures at 20.5 ppg and the offense has not been the issue, but their bad defense has.
The Nets have failed to cover the spread in their last four road games against the Knicks.
This season the Nets are only 4-29 on the road.
New York Knicks
The Knicks rank 14th in the league in points per game and 25th in points allowed.
The Knicks have not played solid D for the season, but in the win over the Pacers they held them to 36.8% shooting and they forced 16 turnovers. New York finished strong in the game outscoring Indiana by 8 points in the 4th quarter.
Melo went for 22 points in the Pacers game and Derrick Rose went for 16.
Melo has had a decent season and Rose has been up and down. These 2 and Kristaps Porzingis, who struggled in the Pacers game with only 11 points on a terrible shooting night, are all averaging over 17 ppg.
The Knicks are 16-17 at home this season.
